Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MsDonna60 Stylish Not Sturdy
While is is cute/ stylish it is not a very solid or sturdy piece. I would not recommend placing to many books or to much weight on this product. Not the highest quality shelf. It does have a lot of screws and to put this thing together takes a bit of time. It is affordable so I would recommend it for a starter apartment or college student who doesn't plan on using it forever.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MaineYankee Small and difficult to assemble
Although this shelf is not spectacular, it is stylish and sturdy enough for the job. It is basically a half-width shelf in a ladder that leans against a wall. Problems come up when you try to follow the directions for assembly. Although I did not receive a damaged product, the tiny instruction sheet was too small to read. You have to use the right screws for the piece you are assembling and you need to put it piece in the right orientation. The images are too small to see orientation and the text is so tiny that I misread how the self side pieces go one, even though I read it twice. Then, if you have not used very light torque putting the screws in, you will have stripped the holes and it won't go together well a second time. The materials used are adequate, but the instructions need to be larger and clearer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CMMToolMan Unique leaning shelf
This is a cleverly designed shelving unit that ships in a surprisingly small box. The manufacturer is able to do this by separating each post into three segments. The segments interlock and are screwed together, and they're sturdy. The only down side is the joints are visible from the sides.
Be prepared to assemble the unit with a power drill/driver. There are 54 screws involved in the assembly. The parts align and fit together well. I suggest leaving the screws loose while aligning each part before tightening them down. This will help the screws align with the pre-drilled holes.
The instructions are okay, but look very carefully at the details to ensure you select the right parts for each step of the build.
The finished product looks good with a nice white finish and most of the screws located under or behind the unit.

This bookshelf looks so much nicer in the photo, but looks can be deceiving! Its rickety and awkward to put together. It looks cheap once assembled and there were nicks and chips out of it everywhere, defiantly not the quality you would expect for the price.

I have had such good luck with everything from Home Depot, I trust that they sell quality products. I never thought they would carry such a low grade item.
The wood split in 3 places when screwing together, pieces were chipped, and after reassembling many times, I can not get it to stand straight. Material is very flimsy - would not recommend purchasing.
Wish I would have only paid half of what I did for it - not worth the full price at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rlcress DO NOT BUY THIS!
This product is very flimsy, and not well made. The pieces were not finished nicely, there were chips out of the wood, and one piece was split almost in half. The screws sent for the sides were too long and poked right through to the other side. At $80 this shelf was a complete disappointment. I'm sending it back. I would have preferred to give this a zero star rating.
