White Big Board Shelves
Poor instructions and hardware
I like the look of this shelf, but the directions for installation are incorrect and the hardware was ineffective. The instructions show the size of the drill bit required and the holes were too big for the first set of anchors. They fell through. So, we tried a larger hole and the other set of anchors. These did not open in the back as they should have when the screws were drilled in so they came loose and the shelf was leaning down. We had to take it out and the anchors slid right out since they didn't work properly. Now we have 4 holes in the wall that need to be patched and a shelf we can't return since the instructions were cut up (as they needed to be) and the box is ripped. Just a side note. We install everything in our house alone. We installed two Elfa closets (excellent products) on our own in one weekend this weekend but the floating shelf is too difficult. I wouldn't purchase another one; we are already stuck storing this one.

These shelves are very heavy, so I was nervous how they would hang on the wall without falling off the wall. I don't think I would have attempted to hang them myself, but we had a contractor do it. Even he was skeptical at first, but since we are using them to display lightweight things in a bathroom and won't be touching them much, we all thought they would be OK. Now that they are up, they definitely seem sturdy and they look great!
