So Simple yet Works!
By: JustMeInMI, Homeowner (Portage, MI)
I purchased the white double rectangle for my bathroom. We are trying to economically remodel a house we purchased a few months ago that is in need of serious updating. The bathroom basically needed shelving or cabinetry that would be about 6 or 7 foot long, by about 3 foot high. But, it couldn't be more than about 12" deep (narrow bathroom!) So my choices were quite limited. I was looking at bookshelves turned sideways, just building shelves, etc. Then I found Way Basics. I did the math, and determined that 3 of the double rectangles would fit absolutely perfectly - almost a custom fit! But I wasn't sure about the quality, so I figured I'd order one, if it wasn't as great as I hoped, I'd just stick it in one of the kids' rooms or somewhere else. Much to my surprise, it was exactly perfect. It went together in just a few minutes. It weighs next to nothing. No tools. Just peel the tape and stick the sides together. It really is that easy. As soon as I get my next paycheck, I'll be ordering the other two to match this one, and my bathroom shelving will be complete! None of my boards were marred or damaged in any way, and all were straight (they are flush with the wall at least, so if they are warped, so is my wall - though I am not saying that is impossible.)
Fit my needs perfectly

You get what you pay for and in this case I got exactly what I expected, and I am happy! The other reviews were helpful in setting my expectations, and if you know what you are getting then you should be happy with this piece. It cheap, its not fancy and I would not put it on display but it is perfect as an inexpensive case that was unbelievably easy to assemble. I used it in the kitchen dinning area, so I could move all our cookbooks off of an exterior over-hanging picture window (worried about the weight). Its holding up great!
Amazing, easy, & eco-friendly!

I will be going away to college soon and I was looking for some simple but attractive shelving options. These are it! Assembly was VERY easy and it took me less than fifteen minutes to put it together. They seem sturdy as they can hold up to my massive manga and book collections. I plan on ordering more of these. One of the nicest features is that you can choose and build these shelves to fit in the space that you need to fill. They are easy to customize by putting them together to suit your taste. The different color choices are great too! I highly recommend these shelves. They look great, they are easy and fast to put together, they are reasonably priced, they are sturdy, and they help the environment. What more could a person ask for?

Disappointing. The material was already peeling upon receipt.

Way Basics Recycled Furniture
If you need simple, basic furniture that's practical and versatile, Way Basics is for you. Way Basics zBoards are easy to put together, sustainably made and completely recyclable. Buy them in pre-designed kits. Or go your own way, and use zBoards as inspiration to invent custom designs and build something new into your life.
It took Way Basics 10 years to perfect the ingenious building-block zBoards at the heart of their business. Their patented, environmentally sound manufacturing process turns post-consumer recycled paper into superbly strong boards that weigh 62% less than particle board. zBoards are just as solid and structurally sound as any engineered wood furniture, yet they're made from one of the simplest materials ever — paper.
Way Basics designed these marvelous building boards to be versatile and easy to assemble, and came up with a new way to put the pieces together. Strategically placed super-strong adhesive tape is the answer — all you do is peel off the protective covering, stick the blocks together, and you're done. If you're creating your own design with zBoards, you can also use screws or hardware if you like. zBoards are water-resistant and easy to clean. They come in different colors and both light and dark wood-grain designs, so you have options to fit your décor. They're also available in white, which makes a perfect canvas for your own imagination.
In these Way Basics packages, you won't find mysterious collections of screws and nails, or complicated diagrams and instructions. That's because you can put our unique zBoards together without tools or hardware. Super-strong 3M brand adhesive strips let you fit the pieces neatly together. Just peel, stick and you're done. Honest.
Because they're so easy to assemble and so versatile, you can also mix and match zBoards to fulfill your furniture fantasies. Since Way Basics products are modular, it's easy to add on to your creation if you need more storage or want to use it for a different purpose. Then paint, wallpaper, or embellish them any way you like as well. (Kids love to decorate their own Way Basics stuff.) That's something you definitely don't get with most assembly-required furniture.View other products from Way Basics
