Rated 3 out of 5Â by Annie Not what I expected
I needed a shelf for my kitchen to hold 5 or 6 cookbooks. This is not the shelf for books. A previous review is correct in that you MUST hang the shelf so that the pre-determined shelf hangers line up with the studs in your wall. We tried sheetrock anchors, and they won't work.
We moved the shelf so that it would line up with the wall studs (even though it made the shelf uncentered on the wall), but when we put anything with moderate weight on it, the shelf would, within a few days, begin to slant downward. My books didn't slide off, but it seemed they would at any moment, so I took them down. I now have lightweight pictures and some spices on the shelf, and it works well. I'm disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vane Love it!!!!!
This shelf is exactly what I expected based on the product features and info provided on homedepot.com. The finish is really pretty, and the quality of the material exceptional; looks more expensive than It actually was, not like the cheap plastic-looking ones you find in other stores.
I also love the length, mine is 36 inches long, which is way more than the standard size you find to hold pictures and little staff like that; since I needed my shelf to function as a bookcase, this one is wonderful because of its maximum weight capacity of 66 pounds.
I am so pleased, that I bought another one and I am thinking about getting more to use throughout the house. I highly recommend it. It is very sturdy and it doesn't wobble like Others do as I read in other products' reviews.
The packaging and delivery time were excellent, I got it before the given date and nothing was broken or scratched.
There was only one thing my husband complaint about, the screws provided, and since he was the one who put them up, he used his own. Other than that, it took him about 10 minutes to have them ready for me .

Rated 2 out of 5Â by rdrr68 They can only go in one exact spot
It is 36" long, but the supports are 32" long in order to line up with the wall studs.
That's the problem. They can ONLY be mounted exactly over your studs.
If you want the shelf to be 6" to the right or left, or even 1" off the studs, then there is nothing in the wall to hold them. Since these are cantilevered units (hang out with only the wall attachment to keep them from bending down), they MUST be mounted directly to a stud or they will pull out as soon as there is some weight on them.
Very pretty finish and attractively built, but I am sending them back since I can't fit them tight into the corner of a room, since the mounting screws are 2" from the end of the shelf and the stud isn't 2" from the corner of the room. Too Bad.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Racer13 Great shelf. Easy to install except for one minor issue. They packaged the mounting screws inside of the support tubing and it toook me 20 minutes to get them out of the small opening since the screws kept jamming in the opening. I figured out the trick for me was to "unscrew" the first screw and the remaining two came right out.
It would have been nice to know this before wasting 20 minutes on a five minute installation.
Great product though!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by chasF Sturdy - as advertised
Shelves were sturdy and the color was fine. Takes some experience to properly install.
