Customer reviews for Melamine White Shelf Drilled Board (Common: 3/4 in. x 15-3/4 in. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.75 in. x 15.75 in. x 97 in.)

Melamine White Shelf Drilled Board (Common: 3/4 in. x 15-3/4 in. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.75 in. x 15.75 in. x 97 in.)

Shelving is a quick, easy, and affordable way to get organized. Melamine shelving is perfect or utility purposes, while decorative melamine adds the same functionality with the look that complements your decor for closets, work rooms, and pantry areas. White melamine shelving consists of melamine resin saturated decorative papers, thermally fused under heat and pressure to a substrate of particleboard. There is no added urea-formaldehyde. This process permanently bonds the paper to the board. It’s got a square edge and is finished face, back and one edge. Panels are pre-drilled to accommodate shelf pegs. Melamine shelving provides a more durable surface for heavy use applications such as closets, pantries, laundry rooms and garages.

I built a pantry using this drilled board for uprights, so that the shelving would be adjustable. I had to drill out the holes to use the shelf pins on the backside of the middle upright board, but if you drill a smaller starter hole and then progress bit by bit to the correct size drill bit, you can get as clean a hole in the melamine as the original.(I'm too frugal to put two boards back to back.) The labels on the board, while Very Big, came off very easily, in one piece, with little gummy residue.
Pros: Functional, High Quality of Material

I did a complete walk in closet using this product, it took a day and a half, although some of that was going back for more boards. Only complaint us that the boards are only drilled on one side, makes it necessary to put boards back to back. Having done that, the whole project Cost a little over $200. For this I was able to treble the hanging space and build 58 feet if shelf space.
Pros: Excellent Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great

Built a shelf unit between 2 cabinets for laundry room. Overbuilt using biscuits and glue, but holds 2 warehouse store (huge) detergent bottles and lots of other heavy items easily (put detergent on its side to make it easy to dispense). Big improvement, not a lot of work.
If you have the cut edges showing, buy some matching edge tape and borrow a clothes iron to seal it on the unsightly edge. Takes a few minutes, and looks very professional.
The label is no problem! Easiest way to remove it is by warming it with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive, and gently peel it off. Or use Goo-Gone remover or equivalent and let it soak in to break the adhesive bond. you can lightly score the glossy surface of the label (DON'T cut through and scratch the work!) Give it time to wet through the label. You can also use Mineral Spirits from the paint department, or lighter fluid. These are great for removing gummy residue, also. Alcohol doesn't work; all it does is make you write angry reviews.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Could they make the GD label any larger, more difficult to remove, and a bigger pain? I spent three minutes cutting the boards to size and twenty minutes removing the labels with my chisel...then I spent ten minutes tracking down the rubbing alcohol I needed to remove the leftover glue on the boards...then another few minutes wiping off the residue. Just the way I like a project to go!
Cons: label non-removable

No, I do not recommend this product.
I am curious as to why Home Depot would show wood colored shelving that is only sold in white. It would make sense that if the product is only available in white to display it in white.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Functional
Cons: Appearance
