This item arrived on time and in perfect condition. It was easy to put together as the instructions were easy to follow. I was looking for a small bakers rack and this one fits perfectly. The baskets are a nice size and fairly sturdy. The color of the baskets and the wood top are a bit darker in reality than what it shows in the picture, but it could be the quality of my PC monitor. It you are looking for a bakers rack with old world charm that can fit into a small space I would recommend this one!
I was looking for a bakers rack or unit of some kind for our kitchen that has recently undergone a renovation because we didn't want the microwave to take up our minimal counter space. After measuring the microwave and looking at the dimensions online, I figured this would work and it did. The user review from "Rosemount, MN" had me hooked. This definitely was easy enough to assemble and all the appropriate parts were there. My only minor issue was in getting the wicker drawer bottoms on.....I had to push pieces of the wicker back a little in order to fit the small screws through. Other than that, I certainly cannot complain about the value. If you're looking for something functional and still attractive, this is a very good buy. It also serves quite well its utilitarian purpose.
We were looking for a piece of furniture for the kitchen that would be used for storage and to help keep things off the table and kitchen island. We are able to store and organize all our recipes, cookbooks, magazines, mail, and anything else that might pass through the kitchen. This furniture is serving its purpose but it's also very attractive! The wicker and iron combination makes this piece unique looking and the baskets add very neat flare. We were able to assebly it fairly quickly and easily in our living room and had it in the kitchen the same day we got it delivered. This is an excellent value and we got a lot for the great price we paid.
Easy to put together. It is nice looking and seems very sturdy, not wobbly at all. The baskets fit all of my dvds nicely or could accommodate items up to 10" high. They are wire shelves that the baskets slide into and out of easily. The next shelf fits things 12" high and the shelf above that just under 8" high. The top two shelves are wire, not a solid shelf so keep that in mind for your planned use.

This is a very nice piece to add to a kitchen or dining room. Although I do think for the quality of the product, Overstock should have listed it at a lower price. It's a great piece, but once I received it, it seemed a bit pricey.
I absolutely love this rack! I was nervous at first, because the main reason for this purchase was to house my microwave in a decorative fashion, and my microwave is kind of huge. But it worked! My husband was able to put it together with little effort (which is saying something). There was no drilling or anything of that sort required. And it is very sturdy. The baskets are foldable, which wasn't something I was expecting, but once you put the bottom portion in they remain pretty stable. They baskets aren't tall enough to accommodate cereal boxes, so I had to put shorter products there for kitchen storage. But overall, this product is just gorgeous. It's so elegant and goes perfectly in my kitchen. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
The stability of the Baker's Rack is less than desirable - it's hard to tell if something is going to be solid and well put together. The design is ok, it's just not as "stable" as I would like to have - I suppose that is the draw back from buying something ON-LINE.
We were looking for an accent piece for our new living room set. The new end tables were wrought iron and this baker's rack had similar lines and style. It assembled pretty easily, in about 20 minutes. My only complaint is that I was told (by Overstock) that there were shelves under the wicker baskets. We didn't want 4 wicker baskets, so I planned to leave 1 or 2 out. Silly me, I assumed that shelves meant usable shelves. Nope! Just enough of a shelf to hold the basket. Couldn't put books or a picture frame. I'm pretty handy, so I cut a couple of pieces of wood the size of the basket, stained and polyurethaned them to match the shelf that was part of the unit. Viola!! It now has shelves.
All in all a good buy and a decent unit.
Are there shelves under the wicker baskets? Can they be used without the baskets?squish64dad on Dec 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello squish64dad, yes there are shelfs under the baskets. You do not have to use the baskets.
Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 16, 2013
not shelves, but support bars. sturdy.brooklyn11231 on Jan 1, 2014
I do not believe you have to use the baskets for this rack. However, there are not shelves per say, but instead a criss-crossed metal bar. There are not solid, so you would probably have to put something else there instead of the baskets. You could take the bars out altogether and put a something else there entirely. That might work too. Hope this helps!cshells0901 on Apr 9, 2014

Box Dimensions: Length: 7, Width: 28, Height: 35 and the two upper shelves screw in.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 4, 2012
I don't remember the exact dimensions but I do remember it being fairly large and flat. The upper shelves are screwed on. I've had this for several years and just moved it from one state to another without taking it apart. It did great.jks1331 on Apr 13, 2013
