I purchased this shelf for a small 3/4 guest bathroom. I needed a place to store towels, extra TP, tissue, toiletries for guest, etc. As is, It works ALMOST perfectly. With a few tweeks, it will be great. NEGATIVES: what the Overstock pictures DON'T CLEARLY SHOW is that the shelves are not solid: they are strips of powder-coated metal. That means that anything stored in the baskets is visible through the shelf above and anything on the second shelf is visible through the top shelf. To correct the situation I will have to purchase and have cut to size 1 piece of MDF, paint it a matching dark charcoal and put it on top of the 2nd shelf. For the top shelf, I'm considering doing the same with a piece of mirrored glass. Not a long term problem but a negative none-the-less is that the packaging was filthy. Also, there are a few tiny places where the powder coat has begun to rust through. I will touch up those areas when I paint the MDF. On the POSITIVE side: the unit arrived the next day after I ordered it! It was securely packaged without any major damage. All of the pieces were there and it was very easy to assemble. I did it by myself in about 15 minutes. It's not an investment piece of furniture by any means but it is cute and functional. I purchased it on sale, (15% off the regular Overstock price.) Considering that I will have to do some modifications, I'm glad I didn't pay any more than I did - that is the reason I rated it only a 3 star for value but in honesty, I must say that I have seen it on other sites for almost $30.00 more than the Overstock regular price. In conclusion: if I had known when I ordered it what I know now, I would still purchase the unit. My husband likes it too.
Love the rack and would recommend it to anyone. I do wish it was alittle taller with one more shelf

Love this. The assembly did not take long and the person putting it together was impressed with the quality. I have a 37 inch TV on it and it's very solid. Great product.

I ordered this product to go against a wall in my kitchen to house all my new puppy's things - toys, food, shampoos & brushes. I filled the baskets with these items and I now have a place to put my magazines as well! It is not too deep and when placed in my kitchen, it did not feel as if there was another piece of furniture cluttering the kitchen. I would highly recommend this item.

I have a small house, so this baker's rack did the trick for me, however I wish that it was just a tad bit taller, not much. The length and width of it was just right, it took no time at all to put it together. The only problem that I had was one of the slats that goes across the bar to hold things up had come loose, it may have broken in transit, or when it was being packed, but it was not damaged to the point of having to return it.
I like this piece for its looks, but it's not as sturdy as I expected. The shelves are metal strips rather than solid shelving. The shelves on the item I received are a bit bent, so I'm not real comfortable putting anything heavy on them such as the canisters shown in the picture. The drawers are helpful for me, as I needed more linen space, however they don't slide in very smoothly. I don't expect this piece to last very long.
