Archetype Espresso 3 Ledge is rated 2.5172 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money So disappointed... If I had bought this at a department store I would have understood the poor construction, but from crate and barrel? Ridiculous... Screw is too small to handle the weight of the ledge. Ledge pulls screws from wall which means the ledge leans forward and is not flush. I had to purchase 2 decorative wall brackets to place under the shelf so it wouldn't lean. Do not recommend this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst... Completely agree with previous post. These shelves look great - but they do not stay on the wall and are not sturdy. They are front heavy and you can barely put anything on them, without them tilting forward. I do not recommend. I have numerous holes in the hole due to poor instructions. Instructions say to use a 5/16 drill bit to install the achors, and that is way too big - the achors wouldn't hold. I will be returning, but now also have big holes in the wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever These ledges fell off my walls twice, breaking everything on them and damaging my floor. Besides ruining drywall when trying to initially install, the ledges basically flipped off the wall after several weeks. Ledge design is poor with it being front heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shelf I bought 2 of these shelves and was able to install them by myself fairly easily. They look fantastic and overall I am very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with purchase I was a little nervous after all the bad reviews related to hanging them, but it actually wasn't that hard. the mounting hardware seems to be the same quality that you usually find with this type of product (and they give you a small level). I have hung floating shelves in the past and they are a little tricky, but these were no harder than others. The quality is a little below average for Crate & Barrel, but the price reflects that. Once you get the first one up, the rest go pretty quick. Having a Carpenter Square ruler handy definitely will make things go smoother as you can easily check to see if your marks are level before drilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pain to hang, but love the finished product! It takes a lot of patience to hang the ledges! We purchased several of the regular ledges and photo ledges for a scattered look. It took a while to map out the space for each ledge and then took a whole lot of re-balancing to ensure they were level! However, they look awesome now that they are up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shelves! I was a little hesitant to buy these shelves when I saw the reviews on here, but I was very pleasantly surprised by them! I've had some experience building furniture -- my own, for my apt -- but certainly wouldn't call myself an expert. However, these shelves were really very simple to put up. Mine don't lean away from the wall at all and they look great! I did not take a measurement of exactly how far I screwed in my screws, but would recommend trying them at 3/8" and then readjusting them until the shelf lays flush against the wall -- mine were definitely closer than 3/8".Overall, I was very pleased with these shelves and would recommend them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not live up to expectations My boyfriend and I bought these shelves online after looking at them in stores. The 3ft ledge arrived battered and without any padding. The shelf was warped and unusable. We will be returning that one to the store. We tried installing the 2 ft shelf using the paper template only to discover after several tries that the template doesn't match up with the braces on the shelf. We cannot get the shelf to stay flush to the wall. It leans no matter what we do. We took it down and plan on returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THESE SHELVES I bought this ledge, along with the smaller one, and one of the "picture" ledges earlier this month. I have never been so disappointed in C&B quality. First, the plastic anchors included with the shelving broke and cracked when trying to screw them into my dry wall. Then, the veneer "coating" was peeling away from two of the ledges. Once I finally got the ledges hung, 10 minutes later, the top one just completely fell out of the wall, breaking picture frames and vases on the way down. Poor quality, poor design, poor me with 8 holes in my wall and no shelving!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look, but we had a difficult time installing them because the hardware that came with it didn't work in our walls. I think this is an uncommon problem thought. The large size is especially great for displaying longer frames or objects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Shelf Great color and sturdy. It was a little difficult to put up, but well worth it once you can use it. Have recieved many compliments on this items. Purchased two other smaller ledges and it looks great

Rated 3 out of 5 by from modern shelf I got this shelf along with the smaller one and a few floating shelves to recreate the cool look online. The smaller shelf is great, but I did find that this shelf is not as sturdy as I would have hoped for the heavy potter pieces I have. It looks great on the wall, but I'm only able to put lighter items on it. Heaver items cause the shelf to sag.
