    • Looks nice...but there are problems
      Verified Purchase

      The completed product is really quite attractive, and it's large enough to hold all kinds of things in the various spaces. Being made of laminated MDF, the shelves are quite heavy, and surprisingly sturdy if you're careful to tighten the screws fully. The finish looks better than many similar kinds of shelves; it's a slightly pebbly-textured vinyl-type laminate (definitely not wood-grained) that seems fairly easy to clean. Those are the positive features of this shelf. But there are a lot of negatives! First of all, the "instructions" (diagrams) indicate this should take about 30 minutes to put together. It took me about 45 minutes just to get the pieces out of the box and try to remove the blizzard of crumbly cheap Chinese styrofoam pieces that exploded into my house before I drug the whole thing outside. Billions of little white dots now blanket my back yard--sorry, environment. Once I got most of them removed from the various pieces, I noticed that in several places, the laminated surface had been scratched or peeled off--however, those spots weren't in highly visible areas, so I was able to touch them up with a black marker. Then, as is the case with many unassembled shelving units, there were lots of screws (30) that had to be tightened with a short, flimsy allen key, which is provided. [I consider the allen key to be an insidious instrument of torture for someone like me with arthritis, and personally think whoever invented this device should be sentenced to life without access to any tools except one of those worthless pieces of crud. But at least they're marginally better than cam bolts.] That part took about 90 minutes. Then, once I'd destroyed my poor hands tightening the 30 screws, there were 30 ugly screw-heads showing all over the place. They do provide 30 little plastic caps to insert over the screws, but then you've got 30 black bumps sticking out all over, definitely detracting from the overall appearance of the shelving unit. I decided to forgo the bumps and painted each of the screw heads with that trusty black marker once the unit was assembled, and it's a much better look overall. But the fun was just beginning. There is no template for hanging the unit on a wall, but there's a diagram showing the distance between the 3 holes for hanging in the back. However, the measurements are in an interesting hybrid of inches and metric (14.57 inches--really??), and they're backwards! Yes, if you drilled holes and set the anchors using the diagram provided, you would have put the middle hole about 7" to the left of where it actually belongs. Of course, the anchors provided are total garbage, so you'd probably have to re-do them anyway. Fortunately, we did spot the discrepancy before drilling; unfortunately, the holes on the back of the shelf for hanging weren't cut very cleanly, so more manipulations and maneuvering were required before the unit was actually hung on the wall. Because of the odd spacing of the hangers, we were only able to put one screw into a stud, and had to supply our own heavier-duty anchors for the remaining two. The process of mounting the shelf to the wall was a real headache, and ended up taking another hour. Since these shelves are very heavy, even with nothing on them, I'm leery of putting much additional weight on them with only one of the hangers in a stud. So much for the glass items I'd been intending to display there. Yes, I do like the look of the finished product...but if I could do it all over again, I probably wouldn't. But if you're willing and able to go through this much effort and aggravation, I'd say this shelf unit is probably a decent buy. Just know what you're getting into!

      I ordered two of these shelves for a large wall, they are well made and easy to put together !! I do recommend buying wall anchors , the ones that came with the shelf are poor quality.

    • Visually as expected, but structurally flawed
      Verified Purchase

      The shelf is what I was hoping for it terms of how it looks--but the holes do not match or line up as they should, per the instructions. We had to drill additional holes in order to make all of the pieces fit together as they should.

      This black shelf is the perfect one I was looking for an empty spot next my front door entryway, high quality materials make it looks pretty, and very easy to put parts together, I will order more for!

      I really love the look this shelf has. The open back makes it seem more open even though the size of the shelf affords you good storage and display space. I upped the strength of the anchors and screws because I wanted to be sure it was sturdy on the wall. I use it above my coffee bar and I love it!

      This shelving unit looks very nice and is s great way to display collectable pieces. I really like the asymmetric design which adds beauty and interest to my wall. The shelves need to be assembled and the pictorial instructions were easy to follow. The pieces were packed safely and arrived in perfect condition. The one complaint I have is the packing material itself. It is the type of Styrofoam that flakes and makes a mess, so be prepared to unpack it where you can contain the packing.

      I ordered this shelf for my son in hope to have space for his books and other small items. I did not expect how big this shelf is. Shelf will take almost half of wall in his room, it’s a bit heavy but it’s really specious. It was easy to build , did not mount it yet but should not be that difficult. If you looking for extra storage this self is for you.

      I like it enough. The assembly was ok, did it myself, took about 30 minutes. Hanging is a bit of a pain as you have to get the screw placement exact - very little to no room for error on that. Also, other than the one section that has a larger space than the rest, all other shelves will only fit small items. Like not even a 4x6 frame - most likely only 3x5 frames or smaller.

      I bought this bookcase for my 17 year daughter room for her to put her books and architectural Lego's on display. She loved it! This bookcase is versatile and modern to add a unique flair to her room. The quality is sturdy but does have some weight. We mounted the bookcase with brackets that we purchased separate to hold it in place on the wall. I would recommend this bookcase if you want eye appeal to your walls :)

    • One arrived without instructions or hardware

      Ordered two. One had all pieces necessary, the other came without the instruction/tool kit to actually assemble. Would like a set of the pieces to be sent or else will need a refund bc currently useless

      I absolutely love my shelf!!! It’s a little tricky to put together, and I recommend using heavy duty anchors and screws, it’s pretty heavy. But once you get it in your wall it will look fantastic.

      I have a tiny kitchen in the retirement condo, so counter space is at a premium. This is a big help in keeping all of the little items OFF the counters but out where I can see them, and find them to use. My husband is adding some cup hooks to the bottom so that I can park the potholders there, too. As usual, this arrived very quickly. And as usual, the WonderHusband went all engineer on me and put it together before I got home. So I guess it wasn't impossible to assemble given the directions. I've only given it the 4 stars because I can't vouch for the assembly. Now I've gotten the clutter off the counters, the feline Lord and Master has decided that they are fit for him to lounge upon.....

      Love this shelving unit! It’s perfect for all your Knick knacks! It did need assembly and the assembly was a little complicated. It came in many pieces.

    • Verified Purchase

      This product came with screws and hardware that was cheap and kept breaking as we assembled. The thin melamine coating actually cracked and fell off in one spot when we hung on the wall.

      This is working out great in my teenage sons room. It holds his various knickknacks but doesn't take up too much wall space. A little heavy to hang but manageable. We especially like the design of the shelves - the random placing of the spaces adds interest and looks great.

      Heavier than I thought it was going to be, but it looks great up.

      Assembly took a bit but wasn't too complicated. It hangs easily and fits a good amount of books. My only issue is that many of the shelves are too narrow to fit anything except paperbacks.
