The shelf arrived well packaged and ready to install. The oak shelves themselves are very nice quality. The shelf was quite difficult to hang, as you have to make certain both metal brackets are aligned perfectly. After hanging the metal brackets, if not done perfectly wide enough, the grooves of the shelves were hard to line up. We actually didn't end up being able to fit the metal into the shelf grooves. So, it's just kind setting on the metal instead of fitting locked into the grooves. Then, one shelf had to be sanded down on one edge, as it was too wide to go through the metal bracket. I had my spouse hang these shelves, who is typically in charge of hanging all fixtures and wall decor. They found it a particular challenging shelf to hang. I'd still recommend this product, but possibly there should be some slight adjustments to make it an easier to install product. Perhaps removing the grooves from the oak shelves or ensuring that the shelves are smaller than the metal brackets.
