Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LadyBlues Not worth purchasing
The holes for this shelf are not drilled properly which makes the shelf fall forward and the holes are not aligned so it is very difficult to hang it straight. (We used a professional installer and even he couldn't make them hang properly after numerous attempts.) Also the finish is a bit rough in places. I am sending all three of the shelves back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RetiredinOhio Poor Quality!
This was exactly what I was looking for, but it is warped and there is an unfinished area on the front. I will be returning it.

The shelf was perfect with the exception of no hardware or directions. Just lucky I had a carpenter here that had what was needed to do the installation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by flonklar Not Great Quality
It seemed like a useful and attractive piece on the catalog page, but after receiving and installing my shelf, I have different thoughts. I purchased it for use over my bed's headboard to put things like a reading lamp, kleenex box, clock, remote controls, etc.
Pulling the shelf out of the box, I saw that it had a raisin-sized ding right on the front edge, even though the outer box itself was undamaged- meaning that it probably went into the box with the ding already in place! I almost sent it back right there, but since no one will ever see it but my wife and myself, I touched up the dent with a little stain and called it good.
The raised front edge (to prevent roll-offs) was nothing more than a length of 1/4" square wood, crudely glued to the top of the shelf. While a useful feature, this raised edge significantly cuts the useable shelf area, so my lamp, clock, and kleenex box sit ON TOP of the raised edge, rather than behind it.
The sprayed top-coat on the shelf was poorly executed, with several runs and darker thick spots
The 2 tear-drop mounting holes on the back are spaced at 24" and do not line up with typical 16"-center house wall studs. Two screws are supplied, but anchors will also be necessary, since you will never find 2 studs spaced correctly. My lath-and-plaster wall construction made installation that much more difficult. The mounting holes are not formed evenly, so the screws protrude from the wall at different lengths to allow for the difference in mounting-hole depth.
After finally getting the screws adjusted JUST RIGHT so that the shelf was supported snugly against the wall, I realized that the rear mounting surface of the shelf (the edge against the wall) was cut NOT QUITE SQUARE, resulting in a forward slope of the shelf (and hence the need for the raised front edge!) To level it out, I had to make some one-sixteenth-inch-thick shims, pull up on the front edge of the shelf, and shove them up into the void.
As a woodworker myself (I build guitars and basses), I now regret that I did not just build a shelf myself- I thought the pre-made unit would be easier and less time-consuming. My mistake.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redroses excellent shelving for pictures
I bought two in 24" and one in 48" in the cherry color....I am so happy with the quality and the ease of hanging. The holes were exactly cut out so my husband could hit a beam on both screws. The pics sit well due to the "lip" at the end of the shelf...no falling pics !! So happy happy happy with this purchase

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NSURET Not very well made
There was a wooden lip on edge that was warped and not glued/fastened down. I had to remove re-glue clamp and tack down.
The holes to hook on wall were flimsy so I had to re drill and reinforce.
Finish is poor.
Disappointed but I didn't want to wait three more weeks for another. It is up

It's beautiful It is exactly what was described on the website. It appears to be very easy to hang and the little lip along the front edge will keep things from slipping off the shelf. Very happy with this product!!!!
