This would be such a cute decoration! I wonder how sturdy it is. Would it topple over easily?

Hi bambakes 7, this is a store-bought set of shelves. It is wider at the bottom than the top and leans or sets against the wall. So, it would be sturdy for small items. I'm not sure you would want a cat climbing on it or a small child pulling on it, though. You could make it less likely to topple by adding brackets to it that attach it to the wall.

This is the perfect thing to put in my tiny house for all of my books and plants!

This shelf is super cute! I can't wait to try this once I'm not living in dorm rooms anymore.

I really wish I saw this before spending a ton on a store-bought ladder shelf... I might have to just make another one for my room!

I've seen these in stores and they're always a bit out of my price range. I love that it looks pretty easy to make myself.
