ShelvingJaniceWe assembled this shelving and it was quick and sturdy.5
Makes a great blanket/storage ladderDoloresOff-label usage: Found an Ikea hack/tip that these can be used for a blanket ladder at a fraction of the price. I still have to pick up the hooks that work with these pieces, but once I do, I will hang clothes and some small purrpingla storage baskets on them.
This was delivered via freight along with some other items I purchased, and I was a little disappointed that it wasn't wrapped or protected in any way. It got a little dinged in transit, but nothing bad enough to keep me from using it, and I plan to refinish it at some point anyway. If you're planning to use this as a blanket ladder or have it out visible/not in a closet, I recommend picking it up in person to help keep it from getting bruised.4
IVARLEE-ANITAI started my IVAR collection in 1985, while stationed in Germany. Over the years I have added to my shelving system to fit the each of the homes I have lived. I use the standard and deep shelves. In the 35+ years I have owned IVAR, I have NEVER had any of the vertical pieces or the shelves warp, or break. I did not like the plastic piece that was attached; but IKEA has returned to the metal piece that works so well. I also have drawers and cabinet units. I use IVAR for storage in the basement and closets but I also use it as bookcases in my home library. It's simple design lends itself to many decors and uses and is a timeless classic design.5

actual woodTHEMBISo this is one of my favorite pieces. I much prefer the real wood pieces at IKEA than anything else. This does exactly what I need it to.5
I have IVAR in almost every room in my home!DONALDWhen I sold my furniture in anticipation of an international move that didn't happen (yet), I used IVAR to create replacement furniture. It can be configured to fit the space, looks like built-ins, and it all comes apart and can be stored away or taken to the next place. Every piece of furniture I have now can be transported by me without help, and fits in my car (not all at once, of course). I have IVAR in the living room, kitchen, foyer and bedroom -- only the bathroom has been spared! Plus more in the garage.5
I did not purchase this item...sylviaWhere did you get your information from?3

Great storage unit!PATRICIAvery happy with the results5
Good, but not as good as they used to bePaulaThe shelves themselves are weaker than they used to be, I have a few I need to exchange. Really good value still.4
Great product! Easy to assemble,RustyGreat product! Easy to assemble, modify, rearrange, and add to as needed.5
Perfect with modificationsBrittanyThe flexibility, value, and aesthetics are great. I would suggest avoiding the metal support bars, which I found to be inadequate, and instead screw or nail in cheap 1/2 X 2 inch board shelf supports yourself.4
