Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sducky Look good but badly made - buy extra if installing multiples
I'm guessing the good reviews are coming from people who were only putting up a single shelf. We bought 6 of these to create an elaborate spice rack on our farmhouse kitchen wall. They were extremely frustrating to work with because they're not made with machine precision. Some holes aren't drilled in the proper location, so some pieces don't fit together easily (or at all). Some pegs fit too loosely because the holes are too big, so they need to be shimmed and glued. We had one shelf bracket that was noticeably smaller than the others and didn't fit where it was supposed to go. The pieces are fairly fragile and will easily break if you try to gently tap them into place. And the pre-installed mounting brackets are not uniformly attached in precise spots. This is probably only a minor annoyance if you're just hanging one shelf. But it's absolutely maddening if you're trying to hang multiples, and you want them to be level and line up with each other. My husband gave up in frustration, and I ended up spending about 4 hours getting them to hang straight. I will say that the end result looks fantastic (except for the one shelf with the wrong-sized bracket, which bugs me, and which I'll probably replace). They're also a good value, as the whole shelf costs less than what it would cost to buy the gallery rail alone in the trim department. Be aware, though, that these shelves use plastic pegs for the gallery rail posts. I painted them, so it wasn't really noticeable. But it might bother you if you're leaving them as-is and are particular about that kind of thing. If you're planning a project using a bunch of these, you might want to buy a few extra, just so you have some spare pieces to work with. Overall, I'd only recommend these to someone who has a lot of patience and is really good with a tape measure and level.

Product is just fine for any purpose. I'm happy with it as a shelf to hold markers & wiper for my eraser/cork board on the wall in kitchen!
