Melannco Chunky Floating Walnut Shelves (Set of 4)
need to have experience and tools
The review are over exaggerated on not hanging, but I can see where there could be frustration. More often than not you get more negative reviews than positive.
this is $29.99 so you kinda get what you pay for: hollow, laminated wood that is made in china. The reviews are correct about the hardware provided. The drywalls screws are too big for the provided threads and initially I had a loose screw which caused the shelf to slope/slouch. I had smaller drywall screws that i used instead. Be very careful using the large template paper ( its folded and you have to stretch it all the way out. I missed marked the first time) you should have a real level rather than the one provided. overall, its a 3 because it looks nice and the price is right. If you are patient and use smaller drywall screws it is a good buy, but not simple coming from someone who used to get paid to do this stuff.

Worst shelves ever made!
For once we didn't read the reviews before getting these and we should have! They are so flimsy that they probably wouldn't hold anything! We haven't even tried to put anything on them since they slant so far forward that if you were to put anything on them it would probably wind up on the floor! If they actually worked they would be wonderful because they are extremely attractive!

Far from satisfied
Yes, as the previous buyers stated, these shelves aren't designed well and will tilt forward and/or fall off the wall. My boyfriend is handy and had a heck of a time putting them up. Plus, when we got them out of the box they smelled so bad that we had to put them in the garage for about a month and that helped - slightly. Very disappointed and wish I still had the box so I could return them.

Wow... I figured I was just an idiot who couldn't figure out how to hang these... but reading the preceding reviews maybe it was the darn shelves' fault! They are perfectly attractive shelves, but a total nightmare getting on the wall. I also tore up my wall and ultimately ended up super glue-ing them on. Fail! We've just moved and I dread reattempting to put these up.

Completely WORTHLESS!!!! After I ruined my walls, I went to Target and got theirs. Don't waste your time or money on these from BB&B. The ones at Target have all the support rods & screws, I strongly recommend theirs. Wish I would have read these reviews before I bought them.

Do not buy this cr4p
I created an account just to review this. These shelves are garbage. Even if you get them hung the hardware will not even support the weight of the shelves themselves and they will slope off the wall.
Save yourself the $30.

Horrible - ZERO Rating
worse thing Ive ever purchased at BBB. Not enough hardware to hang, hardware is proper for shelfs. One shelf missing brackets to hang. You will never get them up and these shouldnt be sold here. Very dissappointed.

We bought two sets of these shelves and once we opened the box we realized they were hollow. We were able to put the smallest shelf up but the second shelf had poor quality notches on the back and started to fall off as we were trying to put it on the wall. The shelf marked up the wall with black lines. The one shelf we did get up on the wall did not seem stable to withhold much weight. I would not recommend these shelves.
