Can I Give MORE Than 5 Stars????
These shelves are BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE & VERY HIGH QUALITY!!! I was BEYOND pleasantly surprised when my order came in. They were packed securely & came ready to hang. They're probably the best, most well-made shelves I've even seen & certainly highest quality ones I've ever purchased. They are extremely well made & fit together like a fine puzzle. The front (decorative) part of the shelf opens so you can put little pictures or nick-nacks inside, but I found doing so sort of took away from the decorative beauty / The nice thing about the part of the shelf that there's a magnet on the flap that opens & one on the stationary piece it rest on when closed. The magnets connect the 2 pieces together & keep them tightly closed rather than allowing the front part that opens & closes to to just hang loose/flap about partially opened as it's hanging / My only complaint is that they're a tiny bit hard to hang (not too bad though!) 'cause you have to get the nails just right, but if I can do it, trust me, ANYBODY can! It's not as secure on the wall as I'd like but then I haven't tried to work with it any either. (I basically put 2 nails in the wall & fit the nail heads into the holes on the back of the shelf & considered it DONE) As it is, it's secure enough to hold a glass bowl, tin flower in a small vase & about a 7" decorative, wooden owl. As it is, I don't know if it could hold a lot of books w/ bookends, but could probably hold a few. I bought 2 of the turquoise shelves & put one over each of my daughter's bed stands. (Her bed stands are pink & red &, after adding turquoise accent pieces throughout the room, the colors look AMAZING together!) If your child is going to be using or touching the shelves a lot to put things on, take them off etc, & you should consider securing it a little better than I did ...but, with just 2 medium size nails & the few things I have displayed on them, I'm not concerned about them falling off the wall. (Unless they get pulled on with moderate force.) / GREAT BUY!!!! ....Frequent 50% off sales makes it an UNBELIEVABLE DEAL!!!
