We received this wine rack and do enjoy the final product. It is a lovely addition to our kitchen. However, the assembly was not easy. The instructions do not tell you one of the initial pieces has to be placed in a certain direction. When the product is assembled you then learn whether or not your 50/50 chance to assemble this part correctly was to your benefit. If not, the drawers will not fit properly. This is pertaining to the middle drawer divider. We had to disassemble and then reassemble the entire rack. This is when the problems really began. The bolt locks provided are extremely cheap plastic and tend to easily crumble. Of the approx. 25 bolts, 10 crumbled into small pieces when reassembling. After we picked up metal replacements at the hardware store everything went back together smoothly.
Contemporary Curved wall-mounted wine rack
I LOVE this wine rack and love the look of it on the wall...however, buyer beware - this is NOT the easiest thing to put up. As other reviewers mentioned, the screws and wall anchors included with this product didn't seem (to ME) to be strong enough to hold the weight of all the wine bottles so I purchased some heavy duty wall anchors and screws to attach it to my wall. I LOVE THIS and get many compliments from visitors on this piece. Highly recommend, but again suggest more substantial screws and wall anchors. When I initially installed the rack I used the hardware included and once installed and with a few bottles of wine in the rack I didn't feel secure that it would hold up so I removed it and with the stronger screws its wonderful.
Pretty good purchase
Overall, it's a unique item that you don't see just anywhere, which is why I bought it. For the price, it could probably be more solid, but then I suppose it would probably be much too heavy to hang on the wall. The vertical pieces are hollow in the back. To be honest, I still haven't hung it yet because I want to pick up better anchors for the wall than what was provided. With a few bottles hanging, I want to be VERY sure it doesn't come crashing down. It's still an interesting looking thing to hang on the wall, and hey, it holds wine! :)
