I love this shelf! It is large, sturdy, and obviously trendy, as I have seen 3 different sizes of it on several HGTV shows this Fall. I did not care for the wash in the shelves; it made them rough, and a bit splintery, in addition to grey. A quick run of the orbital sander, and a dash of clearcoat fixed it, though; about 2 hours for 5 shelves, start to finish. It looks great, holds a lot, and does not even wiggle when the cats play chase around and on it. ;)
The pre-drilled holes to don't always give flush corners, edges and seams. We had to caulk the seams to hide the gaps. I need to sand down the edges so the corners match and repaint. But the design is nice and it sturdy.
Very pleased with this unit. Super easy to put together. Bought it to define a space between breakfast area and family room. It is perfect for my application.
