Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ChloeC decent shelf
one came damaged, not really white but off white. Screws are cleverly packed inside the bracket tubes but you cannot get them out either end - ridiculous oversight. Matte finish no shine to them. For the price they look good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colleen Better than Most
Stylish shelf looks similar to something I was pining for at a name-brand home decor chain but cost about 30% less at Home Depot.
After perusing my local Home Depot and finding only poorly-packaged, damaged and cheap-looking alternatives, I decided to take my chances on this one. The shelf arrived packaged VERY well- no scratches or dings on the shelf upon opening the packaging. The color is less of a bright white and more of an antique white/sour cream color. It blended well enough with our nearby bright white bead board, though.
Install was not a breeze but didn't take more than 30 minutes. The screws provided were stored inside the spokes that support the "wood" part of the shelf and were tricky to shake/pry out. Also, the guide holes provided were not spaced in a manner that permitted securing the shelf to studs (we ended up supplementing with plastic screw anchors and drilling additional guide holes in the metal supporting bracket to match our studs).
Now that it's up, the shelf is very pretty and sturdy. It's holding a few bath towels and lightweight decorative items in our guest bath without noticeable sagging and is still flush to the wall. Ended up getting the 24" one as well. Overall, worth the money if you're looking for a larger decorative floating shelf.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CNug101 When not damaged - a good product
I purchased three of the floating white shelves. Each box came opened and banged up. Thankfully the packing was quite good and two of the three shelves were in good shape. One shelf was broken, chipped and generally unusable. The return was easy to do and the replacement shelf was in good shape.
Overall the shelves are very nice looking and good quality. We like that the shelves have 8inches of space for placing books and wider vases. The brackets are a little week so we needed to add extra screw supports. We found some staining in the paint, but nothing too noticeable (or erased with a touch of paint).

This shelf looked great in the store, so we were excited to mount it in our apartment. The shelf was packaged with the wooden shelf, the metal mounting piece, and the screws... all the materials we would need, HOWEVER, the screws were placed within the mounting "arms," and we were unable to dislodge the screws. Four screws were placed within the "arms," but because they were tapered at the end we could not actually get them out and had to use our own set of screws to mount.
When we screwed in the mounting piece it bowed so much so that it did not match up with the holes in the shelving piece. We had to hammer the "arms" in order to match with the holes. We finally got it on, but WOW something simple was made extremely difficult.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Shelves look wonderful
I love my new shelves. I was glad that I read other reviews because the color isn't white ... it's off-white and the screws are nearly impossible to retrieve from their enclosure. My husband and I installed our 2 shelves with screws that we purchased at Home Depot. They were easy to install and we added a screw to the center mounting apparatus for extra support. I would highly recommend purchasing these shelves as they are beautiful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kmcmahon Bolts hard to get out, and consistency of product not there.
The shelves themselves are good, but the way they packaged the bolts inside the support rods was annoying because it was difficult to get the bolts out. I spent more time getting the bolts out of the rods than actually installing the shelves. Also, one of the shelf units I received was different than the rest. It had a different shaped edge and color white was different.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HNVINES Good, Sturdy Product. Installation modifications likely required.
Purchased the shelves on-line and they arrived as expected and in good condition. Installation had to be modified due to stud location in our extremely old home, by making new mounting ports. Also purchased the 24" shelf but had to return as there was not a stud to mount the shelf to within the space requirement.
