As long as you can use a tape measure, know how to find studs, understand how to anchor if there isn't a stud, and can handle a power tool like a circular saw or screwdriver, this is a doable project! We bought two and made our own design for two walls that join rather than doing a straight 11' run on only 1 wall. The corner setup really makes it a showpiece and it's so nice to look at we have ditched the "install a curtain to hide it' plan we had originaly come up with. We made it so that on the inside of both walls the shelves join up on there are hanging areas on either side with more shelves. We didn't find the intersecting wall "L" layout in the instructions so just brainstormed and drew it out on paper first, then drew the line for the top shelf on the wall with pencil and a level and went from there. After we found the studs we marked them for each shelf and then screwed in the supports using a level to be sure they would be just right. Our floor is a full 1" off plumb where we did this install so we decided to make the shelves straight on the wall rather than following the grade of the floor. The way it came out you would NEVER know since the bottom shelf hides the floor anyway. And who would be laying on your floor measuring the distance anyway!? The only altering of the stock material in the box that we had to do was trim off about 1/4" on the very edge of the shelves where they adjoined in the center of the "L" layout with the circular saw. This is because we have an old house and the walls aren't square. We were able to complete the job with no real issues in about 6 hours. This was with an experienced person working the tape measure and the 2nd person to do the handing out of hardware and such. Excellent product and I would definitely recommend!
