Saved me from buying pine wood and having to paint it white. Just need to have the correct number of support brackets to prevent from from bending

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYatHome Decent if you don't want to paint..
I ended up returning this. All the shelves made by Rubbermaid handle 50lbs, no matter if it is 36" or 72". This is because the material is MDF, which is like chunky sawdust. I instead went to the "Common Boards" aisle in lumber and found some similar boards (12" x 60") for a similar price, but it's 100% wood, so it should be able to handle much more weight and will not break as easily. It can also be stained, painted and refinished (when marred) if you desire.
The Rubbermaid shelves are great if you just want that quick shelf without having to stain or paint wood, but just beware that it won't handle that much weight. Also, if you end up scratching it, you won't be able to fix it very easily.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Like the Shelf, Hate the Sticker!
This shelf is pretty decent- exactly like every other white shelf, but with one key difference- the RubberMaid shelf has a sticker that's a royal pain to remove. Instead of taking 3 seconds to remove the label, I spent 20 minutes per shelf. First I tried peeling, and the sticker self-destructed. I then tried scraping with a putty knife, but it left too much glue. I finally resorted to a combination of scaping with a putty knife and rubbing with paint thinner, and I finally got most of the glue off. Way too much work!
It would be very easy for RubberMaid to use a sticker that's easy to peel- I shouldn't have to spend more time peeling the stickers than I do building my closet.

The shelf was easy to install - no painting! It seems sturdy so that it will be serviceable in the master closet.

Both sturdy and economical, this shelf is perfect for the DIY installer who wants to install shelves without paying for professional installation.

I purchased this to make a shelf in a mudroom area and it is perfect. We have some unused space at the end of a hall and with the installation of this shelf it is now a usable space.

The shelves are fine, but the corners were banged up when they arrived. It was too much hassle to return and wait for replacements. We used them as is, so not thrilled with our purchase.
