These shelves add the perfect touch to my sitting room decor and allow for extra storage of books, frames, vases, figurines, etc. I gave this three stars because the shelves do not sit flat. They either bend forward or back. The legs of the ladder shelf do not stay hooked together....they bend.
This arrived in perfect condition. It was easy to put together, but a little time consuming. I did most of the assembly myself but towards the later steps, it is much easier with two people so I enlisted the help of my husband. The worst part of assembly was having to go back and tighten all the screws over and over again. The shelf was initially VERY unstable, but with going back and tightening the screws up, it is now perfectly stable-- like the other reviews mentioned, just be mindful of not over-tightening the screws and cracking the composite material. This definitely isn't a high-end piece of furniture, but it is a beautiful shelf for an affordable price! I would definitely recommend purchasing it.
While the sturdiness and the extra storage was precisely what I was looking for, the "pewter" color is truly battleship gray. I thought it would be closer to darker chrome-like color or brushed nickel. Also, one of the support is not straight so there is no way the shelf will ever be straight. I had to use that shelf for towels to hid the wonkiness. Too much of a headache to send it back.
