I ordered this for a guest room. I looked at several others that were the same quality but considerably more expensive. The rack arrived 2 days after I ordered it. It was well packaged and all the parts were there. The instructions were easy to follow except for the very last step. By that time it was easy to figure out. The wood shelves were missing pilot holes also, but that's an easy fix. I put it together by myself in a timely manner. The frame is sturdy, the wood shelves have a very nice appearance. I am thoroughly pleased with this purchase!! Thanks Overstock.com.
I am satisfied with this product, but not blown away like I have been with other products from Overstock. The metal is a lot lighter in person more of a silver than iron color. It also had some scratches in it. The assembly was awkward and there were some screws that didn't fit in the alloted holes. Also I put two red wine glasses on the wine rack, and one slipped out and fell and broke already. I think the product looks a lot better in the picture.
i bought this rack after carefully reading reviews as well as looking at what else was out there. it seemed like a good deal, but it looks much more high end in the photo than in person. when you open the large box, there are several and i do mean several pieces for this item. there are instructions but they go something like put AA with EE use P and tighten with alan wrench. it seems easy enough, but bare in mind some of the pieces do not quite fit together that and there are no labels on them so you have to discern what is EE when it looks like it could be also FF or XX (i'm also just using these double letters for example purposes only, non of these letters are actual). a few of the parts of the instructions are wrong, the person who said in their review that E and C (or whatever the exact letters are the opposite than the instructions) is correct. also there are a few places where you'd need to screw actual screws through the wood and the holes were not drilled in the wood, so i am still not quite finished with the assembly after over a month of it being set up in my apartment. the last thing is once it is put together it feels hollow, cheap, and not very sturdy. i have to say i was very disappointed and thought about trying to return it, but it would've involved me having never put it together in the first place.
It was a nightmare putting this item together. It is still partially assembled. The wholes are not lining up and im tired of the whole thing. Im sorry i ever purchased this item. I should have just threw it back in the box and returned it. But I was afraid the shipping and handling would have been more than the cost of the item. The savings have clearly not been worth it.
The delivery time was fine... I was a little disappointed in the quality of the item. The picture does not represent it properly. It took no time to assemble and the instructions, although a little sketchy, were fine to follow. I am not completely dissatisfied because the coloring and material accent my room; however, the unit itself is a little wobbly.
I was disappointed to discover that the rack is not of a black wrought iron color it is actually a dull grey. It looks nice, I was just expecting it to be black (my kitchen is all black). Overall I am satisfied, it does and holds exactly what I need it to. The top glass shelf however does not sit flush. I believe the actual metal dips a bit but it is hardly noticeable at a distance.
Everything was packaged extremely well so had no problems with damages. Was easy to install and took me no time. Only problem was the top wooden shelf didn't seem to be centered after screwing down but that can be my fault. Finished product is great.
It looks perfect in my almost completed Italian (Mediterranean) style lounge area. It's stands next to my wine cellar/cooler I also purchased from overstock. The instructions make sense but you'll need a drill gun (easier) or screw driver to attach the wood shelves. Another good find at overstock.com
The bakers/wine rack is more than what we hoped for. I saw it online and thought my son and his fiance would love it. They just love it!! It is a well constructed attractive addition to their new home. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in this item to feel confident about this purchase.
This unit looks really nice and was very easy to assemble, however when I eagerly grabbed my wine glasses to install them in the rack, none would fit because the bases of my wine glasses were too wide. My champagne flutes fit but that's it. The wine bottle space is also too narrow in the back for some wine bottles so they don't fit either. *sigh* It's sad because otherwise it would be a perfect piece.
For the money,this is a nice piece. Like other reviews states, it is not black or charcoal. It is dark grey powder coated. It is sturdy and was easy to assemble. Packed well and all parts were included. I had it together by myself within an hour. One complaint I have is that the shelf where the wine glasses hang is designed so that thirst and last racks cannot accept a traditional wine glass. Reason being is that each one has a bar from the back of the unit running right behind it. Because if this,there is no way to get the glass base into the track. I've tried every way imaginable and even had a challenge with friends to try :). It's a design flaw. Either the bars should be moved or the first and last tracks eliminated. It doesn't detract from how I use it, but if you needed this for that purpose, you may want to consider this. The wood shelves are a rich dark color and it all looks really nice out together. We use it in our kitchen. For overflow cookbooks and bowls, etc.
