This product, although not worth the claimed retail price, is well worth the overstock price. It is quite beautifully hand painted and comes already put together.I bought two and am using them for shoe storage. I can fit 12 size-9 ladies shoes ( including sneakers and Dansk clogs) by stacking them one ot top of the other (three high), long-ways. Note, I cannot fit them facing out. Possibly a size 8 woman's shoe could fit this way, but not a size 9. You can't see from the picture, but there is only one shelf. Another two shelves could be easily added ifyou don't want to stack your shoes one on top of the other.The glass on top slides around, though, so if my kids were younger, I'd worry about using it. You probalby don't need it. I use it because the top is also hand painted and I didn't want to wear this off since I use the top every morning to place my makeup, hair dryer, etc, while in use.
