Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aweful, Just Aweful This product seems like a great deal and if the product is supposed to sit on the floor it works great. However, the mounting components are the worst mounting components in the history of mounting components. Small, lightweight screws, and an anchor that pulls out of the wall. I am looking for other anchors, but the one I need requires such a small screw head to fit into the shelf I am having great difficulty finding something. I now have two holes in my wall that are in need of repair. I am returning these shelving units. Save your time and DO NOT purchase these in the first place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good in theory, design is terrible I loved the way this ledge looked but the design to hang it is terrible. No matter what we did, we could not get them to lie flush to the wall. Most floating shelf designs have something you first mount to the wall and then slide the shelf into. These did not. After spending several hours attempting to get it right we ended up buying brackets so they were at least level. I would never buy these again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Design First thought I installed it but when even the slightest bit of weight was put on it, it fell off the wall and taking a chunk of the wall with it. After patching, painting and getting better hanging hardware from the local store, it still wouldn't install correctly because the design is flawed and it can't hang flush. See that others have same problems as me. Very disappointed because it looks great in the pictures but in reality it can't be installed without ruining your wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ruined my wall If there was the option to put less than 1 star I would. I now have huge holes in my wall, and after 2+ hours still no shelf. Too bad these were a gift or I would return IMMEDIATELY! It doesn't matter if you are handy or not, these are terrible to mount. I've just finished building a deck so I am not inept with tools. Now I need to figure out how to hide the huge holes in our drywall from my husband!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible mounting design My wife and I are both engineers from top engineering schools. After 2 hours, we managed to get 4 of these mounted, with extra (huge) holes in the walls, and none of them are flush to the wall. I hope they last at least a few years without pulling out of the walls.  Terrible design - they should have a cleat that screws into a stud, and have the shelf slide onto that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy This! This is a great looking ledge that's horrible to mount. You'll wreck your drywall in the attempt to mount it flush to the surface.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality. Lack of right parts. Ruined Wall. I originally picked these ledges to include in my wedding registry because they matched my bathroom perfectly. I was nervous about floating ledges in general; I didn't want to ruin my walls. But I have never had any problems with the quality of products from C&B before, so I thought I would be safe. I received two ledges for my bridal shower. One shelf did not even come with the silver brackets on the back. The other shelve had the brackets, but one was assembled crooked, so the shelf was crooked on the wall. Also, the shelves were so heavy that they do not stay flush against the wall. Both shelves were chipped. I am extremely disappointed. Now I have to deal with fixing my ruined wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEVER AGAIN I recently had my living room painted and could not wai tto install these photo ledges! Big Mistake. My friend and I took 2 hours trying to get them on right and then it ripped the plaster and new paint off the wall. I will be returning these to crate and barrel and suggest to anyone buying these to think twice before you actually buy them. Or hire a professional to install them. Thank god my painter came back over to fix the wall, he asked if I wanted him to install them and I told him no because I was just too frustrated after working with it for hours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst ever Wish I had seen the reviews before I purchased these. Now have holes in the wall and some broken treasures. Terrible mounting system. I can't believe they are still selling these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Terrible Installation I bought this a year ago and am still having trouble with it even though it was professionally installed. The handyman went crazy trying to fix this...the ledge protrudes at an angle and when I try to align the screws and the ledge...the wood starts breaking...there are so many dents in the ledge already..the wall is ruined too :( Would not recommend, they look great but whats the point if you can't get them to display properly...disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Falls off the wall. Terrible mounting mechanism. This, and the 3 foot shelf both fall right off the wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy I am watching my husband try to install them as I write this review! He has probably spent 5 hours already and he's only on the third ledge. Hardware is AWFUL, and it's not good for your temper!! DO NOT BUY! We would return, but we would be left with big holes in our make sure you have lots of patience if you want these to not stay in the box!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly constructed Although they looked good when finally installed, the drywall hardware included in the kit was terrible, we ended up using our own...leaving extra holes in our walls...and some of the veneer started peeling away with the extra handling required to install the shelves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Normally I love the quality of Crate & Barrel products, but this was not the case with the 2' and 3' shelves I bought. After struggles to get the shelves hung on the wall, they did not hang properly and instead were pulling away from the wall. The dry walls screws included also broke when trying to use them. We just returned the shelves this weekend.
