Unfortunately, this rack is cheaply made and being returned. The sides of the top rack are made of grey plastic as are all the decorative pieces. The top portion even when tightly fastened still has movement and a heavy bath towel could tip it. The metal cover over the bottom base unit is very thin and of poor manufacture. The finish on this entire piece is poor. I would never have purchased this if I had the opportunity to see it firsthand in a store. The interior packaging was destroyed when I received the item leading me to think that perhaps I was not the first person to decide this item should be returned.
