Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and Solid Bought 4 of the 48” shelves to float in the kitchen. They are stunning and way sturdy. I ordered an addition 2 today to complete the look. I’ve already loaded them up with dishes. Contractor had no issues hanging and secured them to the studs for extra support. Love the hombre light to dark wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to hang and sturdy I’ve read a few reviews prior to purchasing this shelf that stated it was difficult to hang and wouldn’t be secure if you couldn’t find a stud. Well I totally disagree. The way this shelf is designed, it allows you to place your screw in any one of the numerous openings it has for holding a screw, thus ensuring that you’ll be able to hit a stud. It’s extremely sturdy. I purchased a few to create a path for my cats to get up on a very tall bookcase where they sometimes like to sleep, and they jump from shelf to shelf and there’s no way this shelf is going to falter. It’s an excellent and sturdy design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Attractive! The 3 Castelli Slim shelves went up perfectly. My husband found 2 studs per shelf and we have no sagging. They look great in our home office where space was a little tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Substantial and beautiful Great design, very sturdy as long as attach metal bracket to 1 or 2 studs as recommended (no tilting). 3" depth gives very substantial look. Exceptionally beautiful with more than 1 shelf as a total wall system. 12" depth also give elegant look. Love, love, love

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Beautiful! I ordered 2 of these shelves in the white washed color. They are so gorgeous. Great quality. I had to hang them with different screws because my walls are plaster. Overall loved the purchase and will purchase some more for my hallway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slim Wood Shelf Be certain to anchor well into wall studs or masonry block for best results. Great product, well made welded anchor bracket, very robust.
Date published: 2019-09-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful Accent These are really beautiful shelves but were very difficult to hang. The shelves wanted to tip forward as others have commented. I would also note that the words "slim Wood Shelf" is a little misleading as they are quite large. Once hung, I couldn't be happier with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son in law put up all six shelves in just under two hours. Quality great added nice look to family room. Needs a little better mounting system. My son in law hung all six in under two hours. They are a great shelve look awesome in my family room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Floating shelves Be aware that the “distressed look” of these shelves is made by the manufacturer spraying them with black stain. It almost looked like they were burned. We sanded the front and exposed side of them and re stained. It didn’t take long but we would have preferred not to. The shelves are nicely made and of good quality. We put 3 in our kitchen. I definitely would not put anything heavy on them. We were able to put at least 2 mounting screws in wood. We used drywall mounting hardware for the others bracket holes. They still seem to have a bit of movement because of the way the brackets are made-but they hang straight and look nice

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tilts with no stud I bought 2 of these (36") with a very specific wall location in mind. I was instantly disappointed to find out that the limited screw hole placing on the brackets meant that I couldn't mount the shelves to any studs. So--of course--they sagged! I even shored up each bracket with 2 additional 50-lb wall anchors (6 total per bracket). Still, the brackets and shelves tilt noticeably forward under their own substantial weight. Now I have to go buy brackets to make them level (and therefore drill into a tile backsplash)--something I was trying to avoid by buying these floating shelves in the first place. These are beautiful shelves that I'd still recommend...so long as you're lucky enough to find a stud or two!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great looking shelf, but We had to JERRY rig the 60 inch shelf for it to be level. Not sure if the bracket was off or the shelf holes but we didn't discover this until we had trashed the packing or I would have sent it back. B

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inaccurate Description/Image Ordered the castelli slim wood shelf in whitewash shelf, but when it arrived it is simply unfinished/natural wood. Definitely not whitewashed/white/off white. Not even close to the description or image on website. Sending it back.
Date published: 2020-09-18
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design flaw They are beautiful hanging, but they do tip forward. We bought 3 of them and do feel that they have a design flaw. We had to support them all to have them close to horizontal.
Date published: 2018-10-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good looking, poor design The shelf looks great but even when installed in two studs, cannot get it to level. The mounting bracket is insufficient to support the weight of the hefty shelf. I’m going to have to use visible brackets underneath to support the weight.
Date published: 2018-06-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sagging shelves The shelves are beautiful but they slant forward. The other day some of my drinkware slipped off and shattered all over the floor. I wish there was a way to fix. We've tried shimming them but have had no luck.
Date published: 2017-03-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thin shelves These were incredibly difficult to hang. The shelves did not hang perpendicular to the wall, they sag. Had to rig these to work. Disappointing a this price point.
Date published: 2019-10-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great but sags when hung I loved the look of the shelf and ordered the 48" length. After hanging it I noticed it sagged - not just a little that most wouldn't notice. It sagged enough that I had to take it down. I returned it to the store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shelf tilts forward without additional support Like others, I wasn't able to get this shelf level so I hired an experienced handyman. He diagnosed a potential problem - the hollow center of the shelf means there's no interior structure to support the prongs that stick out of the bracket on which these shelves are hung. As a result, the 12" deep shelf tilts forward at more than a 90-degree angle over the approx 8 to 9" long interior prongs. In addition to leaving a gap between the shelf and the wall, the forward tilt of the shelf made me uncomfortable placing glass or other fragile display items on it. Exterior shelf brackets could be added below the shelf to provide support, but that's not the look I wanted nor is it what a floating shelf should need. This seems to be a design issue. If an interior support (for example, with holes drilled to match the prongs) were added to the shelf to allow it to hang level, I would happily purchase that improved design. As currently designed, these shelves tilt forward off of the wall so I'm sending them back to Ballard. Thanks to the customer service rep for helping me with the return process - Ballard has nice people on staff!
Date published: 2016-12-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor brackets The wood shelf itself is beautiful. However, the mounting bracket does not hold the shelf level. This allows the shelf to sag even without any items on it. I tried to put some light pictures on, but these slid off. Overall quite disappointed, as I was really excited about this shelf initially.
