Great shelves
Love these floating shelves. I ordered two sets in white in the 20" length. They weren't painted very well (can see the markings) and there are some chips, but overall they look great. Installation wasn't too bad. The screws provided broke off, so we ended up using our own screws. Definitely put at least one screw on a stud if you can. We were able to put one on a stud and use one anchor per shelf. The anchors are questionable but we made them work well enough. So far they're pretty sturdy and hold picture frames/candles well. I wouldn't test the weight limit though as the screw on the stud is doing most of the heavy lifting. Overall it was a good purchase and completes my living room.

Very nice, solid wood floating shelf
When I ordered this, I did not expect it to be custom made out of solid wood. Each unit will not be the same, it will all have different, unique wood grain. This is not some cookies cutter manufactured shelf, you can smell the fresh wood stain straight out of the box. It came with solid steel mounting brackets with easy instructions. One thing I do recommend is get your own mounting screws and anchors, whatever is best for your wall. The anchors I received broke so I had to make a quick run to Home Depot to get some new ones. Overall, I'm highly surprised by the quality of the product and glad I didn't get a manufactured wood shelf that's available.

I bought the product couple days ago and I really love it. It's so easy and fast to install.. all you need is a screwdriver. Look amazing wherever you put, in your restroom, for your studio or even in your entrance. Its perfect and with a really good quality. I highly recommend.

Great but...
The size is perfect but like others have noted the screws need to be changed out immediately. I went with a 12x2” screws.

Great shelves!
At first I thought the brackets were missing because I thought they’d be packaged separately and they were a different color. However they ship the shelves with the brackets already inside them. The brackets are tight (so that the shelving isn’t loose when you put it over the brackets) so you might have to pry them out when you are taking everything out of the packing (I did!). I’ve never had floating shelves before so other than my initial naïvety, the shelves were very easy to install and exactly what I wanted!!

If you’re looking for a pair of floating shelves at a great price, these are it. I was looking at floating shelves on Etsy and would have paid almost double for one floating shelf of the same size as I got for these two. Color was accurate from HD site description. And the brackets that come with work great. One thing to take away from my review, and it will save you time, DO NOT USE THE INCLUDED DRYWALL ANCHORS. The shelf will instantly sag and you will think this thing is garbage. Go get a set of drywall anchors from HD that will actually lock into the wall. I believe the screws that come with the shelves are a #10 but several drywall anchors are #8. I found a set that were #10 and opted to use the included screws because they are a flathead and not round top which is what you will get with a drywall anchor set. Once I pulled all the crappy ones out and set these in, the shelves were level and looked great.

Nice Shelves
I needed something in Dark Walnut to match a small Murphy Bar and couldn’t be happier. the price was great and these matched perfect. My husband loves his new bar cave or speakeasy. Most of which i bought from home depot except the Murphy Bar

They are cute and serve their purpose. They are loose in the pocket holes and the drywall anchor hardware they supply is junk and you’re best off finding one stud and using other anchors on the other spots. Still work, just cant hold more than 20lbs

Pretty but Need Better Hardware Kit
I can see why the ratings for these shelves were a bit low. The shelves are very pretty and easy to install. The hardware kits come w/ red anchor and black screws and a metal bracket. The screws were too small and did not fit snug into the anchor so when the shelves were in stalled, they would slant down and literally fall off the bracket. I've attached the photos of the red anchor/black screw, the replacement screw that I recommend, the photo of the upper shelf w/ the original red anchor/black screw and and the lower shelf using the replacement screw, and the finished product.
