Great size but not for heavy items.
I needed a smaller size shelf for my laundry room. This fit perfectly, and though it says it can hold up to 33 lb, I added an extra (3rd) bracket in the middle because it did not seem too sturdy. I had a bottle of detergent and and few other things on it, not nearly close to the weight limit.

Bought this for a few of my cookbooks (bought the jumbo size). Overall, I'm very pleased. As stated, it's for cookbooks so it does sag slightly in the middle but it's really no big, I simply moved the books more to one end & put lighter decorative items in the center. Fair warning, it comes with those impossible plastic 'anchors' so I used some metal butterfly type that I had on hand. Probably a good idea if you want it to hold a fair amount of weight. I wish it would have been slightly heavier weight but I bought it on sale so can't complain.

I used one of these shelves for potted flowers in my kitchen, & it works great! I have no window sills in my home that are suitable for potted plants. So anytime anyone gave me a plant as a gift, it died from lack of adequate sunshine (& because I forgot to water it!
So I got this shelf & hung in from my vinyl kitchen window frame, using Command hooks, & it works great! It has strongly held 3 pots of flowers & 2 pots of herbs (& I remember to water them since they are right over my kitchen sink). It looks great because the sunlight is still able to shine through between the wires of the shelf. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

i bought one of these to open up some counter space in my kitchen. i was hoping to get a small keurig, regular coffee machine and assorted coffee supplies out of the way. everything fits, the shelf is unobtrusive and i have my counter back. you have to level it from the top of the "backsplash" of the shelf, as the actual shelf was not in any way flat. also, since i was putting a bit of weight on it, i installed it with hollow wall screws instead of the included hardware - just to be safe, not because i thought theirs wouldn't work.
