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.
