Wendel 5-Shelf Ã¿tagÃ¨re
Great Shelving Unit,be patient, no instructions
We recently bought the 5-Shelf Wendel Etagere White shelving unit for our daughters room. Once we got it put together (there are no instructions) and we got her room organized I realized just how wonderful it was. It looks great, holds books and assorted items very well too. Just plan for a little extra time when putting it together. Instructions would have been helpful to say the least.

Not best option
This was purchased for a dorm room. The sales associate warned us that when they assembled it the shelf chipped- sure enough when we assembled it the shelf broke. So, I don't think it's a practical option.

This was my first Container Store purchase, and I was very surprised at and disappointed in the quality. The shelves are attractive, but the units are so flimsy that we couldn't assemble them or anchor them to the wall side-by-side so they'd be symmetrical, no matter how hard we tried. (See picture.) One of the side supports broke immediately, but the instructions say that replacing parts requires contacting a 3rd-party -- the manufacturer -- which would take far more time than we had. The main problem is that the holes drilled into the shelves are too small to easily accommodate the supports, so assembly was incredibly difficult.

I purchased two of these shelves. They look great and hold a ton of stuff. They were a little hard to put together because the holes were a little small and they had to be shimmed on the bottom, as they tilt forward. Luckily, my husband is a pro at this.
