Thursday, November 11, 2010 Nexxt Shelf Review

We recently replaced the flooring in our living room. Remember the stuff that I won? Yeah, that's the stuff. So we have beautiful laminate hardwood flooring now throughout our living and dining room. Remind me to share pictures some day soon!

When we moved things out of the living/dining room to rip up and lay down flooring, some things were not coming back into the room. We had a huge entertainment center in the living room that took up so much room. We plan to get a flatscreen TV at some point anyway, and it will not fit into our old stand. So we decided just to get rid of the old stand for now. We're currently using a smaller stand from our bedroom, but we need to decide on a good television stand eventually that will match the room better.

In the dining room we had a large bookshelf that took up a lot of space. Too much space! After seeing the room with it moved out, I decided that was not going back in either. Actually, since the entertainment center held all of Zachariah's books and some toys, the bookcase we had was needed in his room to contain that. It was a good move, but that left me an empty corner that needed a smaller piece of furniture.

I was lucky enough to work with again and choose an item for review. I looked at bookcase and bookshelves, and I was very pleased with what I found. I finally settled on a ladder shelf. I've been seeing these all over the place lately. And I liked the idea of having something black that looked good with our new flooring.

The Nexxt Hadfield Five Tier Leaning Wall Shelf in Black is just what I was looking for. The price was a little more than I'd expected at $75.00, but it had free shipping on it. The shelf came in a box all in pieces. I had to use a screwdriver to put everything together. Each individual shelf had to have the sides and back put on (repeat 5 times), then the sides of the ladder had to be put together, and finally the shelves got put on the sides. Let me tell you, my hand was tired for several days after this.

Over all I am pleased with the look and structure of the shelf (you can tell I'm not done decorating it yet). It is perfect for the space that I put it in. I'm glad that I found something I love. The few issues I had with the shelf are the length of time it took to put together and one of the bottoms of the shelf did not have pre-drilled holes like the rest. That was a bit of an inconvenience for us, but fortunately my husband drilled a few holes for me and we were fine. The price is a bit higher than I'd expect for something like this, but looking around I see it's reasonable with the $75.00 price tag. (I'm not sure about the marked original list price of $129.00. I would not pay that for it.) has always been easy to work with. The products come in quickly, and I've not had problems when I order from them. I will definitely see them again for future needs. They have such a variety of stores that you can find just about anything with them. Stay tuned for a gift card giveaway to coming very soon!
