I had been searching for a baker's rack for some storage and to signal the end of my dining room and the beginning of the living room. I was very impressed at how well-packed it was. I have an enormous pile of Styrofoam/plastic bags and cardboard to discard, but it was worth it! My rack arrived in perfect condition! (Have your vacuum handy!) I do not have much experience putting together furniture and I'm pretty bad at following picture directions. I assembled it alone and it took about an hour. I was afraid to scratch my floor, so I assembled everything but the wood on my living room carpet, moved it, and then put on the shelf. The baskets do not appear to be made for heavy duty items, but they are roomy. I wish the bottom most shelves hooked in like the top ones. I'm concerned they may slide out when the baskets are pulled. Items with sturdy, stable bottoms are the only things that will stay on the top two shelves. I did some rearranging from my original plan. The rack is lovely once assembled and although it's only been one day, I'm very happy with my purchase so far!
It's a bit smaller than I expected, but that's my fault for not reading the dimensions more closely. Relatively sturdy and easy to put together. However, the top shelves aren't all that useful without buying some glass. The metal bares are round, slippery, and spaced a little too far apart to be very useful. Also, they aren't braced in the middle, so they won't hold anything very heavy.
The rails that support the baskets have never been straight. I think it's because either the rings they set into are too high, or some other piece is off. Since this was the last step in assembling, (and I was in no mood to disassemble it and attempt to ship it back), I just decided to live with it.
