  • Nightmare to assemble/not sturdy
    Verified Purchase

    Pro: They look nice! Con: They took approximately 5 painstaking hours to assemble due to poor engineering. Since holes didn't align we actually had to stuff them with paper to make the screws line up. Con: Although they look nice... we're not so confident they're going to last long. Very unsturdy. Would not recommend for books or other heavy items. We are very disappointed in the purchase, unfortunately. We expected much higher quality from overstock.

    Ordered a set of these ladder shelves and they arrived within a few days, packed very well, no damage to any of the pieces, used up all the hardware (does not come with spare parts), and the directions recommended for two people to assemble the shelves, however, I am pleased to say I put them together by myself (female). :-) They were set up within a couple of hours, the color is a rich dark cherry/mahogany, they hold my books and photos in my office. I did put bumpers on the upper back rails to keep the shelves from hitting the wall. I give this purchase a double thumbs up!

    Bought this shelf over four years ago and they still look like I just bought them yesterday, they hold weight well and looks amazing on the side of my fireplace.

    I have had these shelves a few years now. They are cute and look great. Just make sure you put those little felt pads on the back of the top, where it leans on the wall. Or it pulls the paint from your wall if you want to move them.

    Easier to put together than the reviews made it seem. They are strong and sturdy.

  • Love my Ladder Shelf!
    Verified Purchase

    I have ordered several pieces of furniture from Overstock and have been please will all. The ladder shelf is beautiful! I ordered two and flanked my fireplace in my family room. The construction is sturdy, my husband had absolutely no problem putting them together for me, they lean perfectly, and did not have any scratches or blemishes. I'm pretty picky about furniture and I am aware that not everything is top of the line from Overstock, but this piece is exceptional. I have received many compliments and just love they way they enhance the décor of my family room.

  • Great buy
    Verified Purchase

    Perfect size for my bathroom. Fairly easy to assemble, would be easier with two people but absolutely possible to assemble with only one. The foot support on mine was cracked but I have ordered enough from Overstock to come to expect something is always a little off so now I'm prepared. A little wood glue fixed it easily. It looks great, and was very well priced. It's sturdy, doesn't move, tip, or wobble at all.

  • Just what I wanted
    Verified Purchase

    I've had these for over a year now and they are definitely as advertised, if not better. Solidly constructed, easily assembled (if you're used to doing assembly), and nicely designed. The color was true. Only neg would be that they can streak your wall if you allow them to slide sideways, so be careful. Would definitely order more and just might..

  • Great product; excellent deal!
    Verified Purchase

    We purchased the set of two ladder shelves, and have placed them on each side of our fireplace. The shelves were assembled by one person fairly easily. All parts were included in the package and the product was in excellent condition upon arrival. The color of the cappuccino shelves are a medium-dark wood, but not quite as dark as espresso. The shelves support surround sound speakers (small and large), dvr and dvd player, and numerous picture frames, candles, vases, and decorations. We have a cat who likes to climb, and we have not had to worry about anything falling over with these shelves. There is a hidden third leg on each unit under the bottom shelf that allows for sturdiness even when not leaning against a wall. We shopped around for nearly a month and this was the best price we found for this quality product.

    I was leery of purchasing these shelves based upon some of the reviews. However, I followed one of the reviews and purchased new dowel pins to attach the shelves. You will need 40 - 1/4 X 1 1/4 inch dowel pins. They will cost around $ and are well worth it! The shelves are super sturdy and have no wobble at all. Instead of using the included strap to attach the top of the shelves to the wall to keep from shifting, I used Velcro pictures hangers by Command Strip. Any hardware store carries them. They worked great! This is going to complete my home office! I am SO VERY HAPPY!

  • Great shelves for the money

    Easy to put together, not stable without a wall to lean on, but look great, are a good size. Very happy with this purchase.

  • Good price. Good quality.
    Verified Purchase

    I really like this bookcase. I purchased two to frame my entertainment unit and I was able to put both together by myself in just a few hours. I was a little concerned, based on other comments, about the fact that the bookcase sides are not one long piece, but the two sections fit together nicely. The separation is noticable but it looks natural and is well finished. I would definitely buy these bookcases again.

  • Great shelves- a little redder than "cappuccino"
    Verified Purchase

    These shelves are great, the design looks wonderful and just like what you'd find at *** or something. They are fairly sturdy, but I would not trust them to hold my entire book collection (I have vases, photo frames & a few books on these). i.e. I have 4 large hardcover cookbooks laid flat in a stack on one shelf, and that amount of weight makes the shelf tilt just slightly, so not sure it would hold up to a full stack of books on it! Lastly, color description is not great. They still look really nice and I am happy with them, but they are NOT espresso/ cappuccino/ dark brown color... they have a deep RED hue that is more like a dark cherry wood. Still look great, but beware of color!

  • Great bookcases!
    Verified Purchase

    Product was exactly as described. Very easy to assemble. Direction said that you needed two people to assemble, but I did it myself with no problems. Quality of wood is great. Looks really good in my living room and I've received many compliments on the bookcases. Both of the bookcases came in separate boxes, shipped together in one overall box. The shipping box was quite heavy, which I didn't mind because it showed that the quality of the wood was great.

  • Easy to put together--even for one person.
    Verified Purchase

    The shelving unit was very easy to put together. I was a bit concerned because I didn't have a friend to help and the instructions noted that was a two person job. Not to worry! The pieces are drilled correctly, and I took my time and it came out great. I did not attach the units to the wall, but I did (as some extra security) glue rubber to the bottoms to keep it from sliding.

  • Cool bookshelves
    Verified Purchase

    I have more books than I know what to do with and could never find shelves that I really liked. A friend of mine had similar shelves and I began to search for a pair that would match my decor. The pair of leaning shelves matched perfectly with pieces I already own. Although there are about a hundred screws, dowels, etc--the packages do not come labled--they were easy to put together and look terrific!

  • Color is nothing like the picture
    Verified Purchase

    I was disappointed to see it so much lighter. I have had troubles lately with purchases made on line and I am a little disappointed at this point. I'd send these back but that is a whole other issue since I don't have a car and they charge to pick up. What a nightmare!
