Let me start this review off by saying that these shelves look good and are functional. Right now I have them holding up a board game collection (boxes of all various sizes and weights) and it is sturdy and attractive. HOWEVER, these shelves are not worth the painful assembly process for what they are. Being a glorified stepladder, there are way too many pieces, parts, and flawed instructions that come along with it. Not only are there 30+ steps to assembly, the materials are inexpensive and cheap. Assembly involves a lot of flimsy wooden dowels that need to be put in place with GLUE, plastic bits, screws of several sizes, and instead of normal screw caps to cover the tops of screws and make them look unobtrusive, this product comes with STICKERS! I think that's a totally cheap cop-out for what you're paying and going through to piece it together. And glue?! There's got to be a better way. There are other shelving units out there with similar designs. I suggest picking an alternative to this particular one.
