I was looking for a 5' mantle/shelf to go above to fireplace and found this lovely piece online. It's made of durable wood. I had my husband replace the small hanging screws that came with the piece with 3" screws. The screws that come with it are way too small to hold up a 5' shelf. The only minor thing that is not mentioned or shown in the picture is the piece has a plate rail (1/4" notch) across the entire top of the shelf. Great if you are going to put plates on it though. It does not interfere with putting anything on top of it and I'm very pleased with my new mantle/shelf.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mayran Impossible to Hang
These shelves are beautiful and made well. However, the assembly they send you to hang them is woefully inadequate. Also, the shelves are really heavy, and the placement of the hole to fit over the wall anchor is completely wrong and causes the shelves to pull away from the wall no matter how heavy duty the wall anchors are. We still have not hung them because we haven't found a way that works well and is aesthetically pleasing, but I can't send them back because it would cost me just as much to ship them back as I would get from my refund. I have no issues with the appearance of the shelves - they look good and are high quality workmanship. But it doesn't do me any good if they're not functional and I can't hang them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TeamEGG Beautiful w/ bad hardware
We ordered the large 60" shelves. They are beautiful and we love them... however, the hardware included to hang such a heavy shelf is a joke. You'll need to buy at least one larger flat-head screw and one large-wt capacity drywall anchor to support the shelf to the wall. You can place the flat-head directly into a wall stud, but the other screw support on the shelf will not line up to another wall stud and requires a drywall solution, thus the anchor. Otherwise no issues. FYI: Made in China. Packaging NOT eco-friendly in any way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsStaceyR Excellent shelf, well made
This is an excellent product. Very well made and solid. The shelf is a little heavy but it is only because it is a well made product. Very easy to hang. My husband is very particular and wanted to change the placement of the holes for hanging so that the wall nails would be exactly on the studs. HE moved the metal insert hooks and redrilled the holes. It was like it was handmade. You wouldnt have to do this..he just likes things his own way and always alters products. The shelf was packaged very well. I bought the 60" because that length is very hard to find in stores. I wasted a lot of gas looking. The shorter ones are not so hard to find. But this product is wonderful. I am considering buying another. I placed this shelf right above my couch! Perfect length!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dondi49 Lovely shelf
I had been looking quite a while for an over-the-window shelving unit for photos. Home Decorators had the right length and price. The white shelf matches the white window frame and shutters on the window. The groove in the shelf holds the photos quite well. My husband installed it and while there was virtually no assembly to the shelf itself, the shelf was heavy and difficult to install so that it was level. He said it would have helped if the mounting holes had been flush and not recessed.

Very nice piece of work. Has a great little cut out to sit framed photos or artwork on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jputter I bought this shelf for my small guest powder room. It holds a combination of room spray and photos. The golden cherry color perfectly matches my vanity and mirror frame. The quality, the workmanship, the design are top notch. It's easy to install. Just be sure to use a level to be sure it's straight on the wall. It's just the touch the room needed to give it that designer powder room look.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lorianne So glad I got this shelf
The shelf came well packaged. Came in the promised time-frame. Unpacked & was in beautiful condition---no scratches, or dings. The color was a true black. Very good quality for the price. Quality Control/Customer Service must have read the previous reviews because the mounting brackets were better than the reviews described, as was the color & quality of the shelf. My Japanese wood block prints look great on it.
