We were looking for an accent piece for our new living room set. The new end tables were wrought iron and this baker's rack had similar lines and style. It assembled pretty easily, in about 20 minutes. My only complaint is that I was told (by Overstock) that there were shelves under the wicker baskets. We didn't want 4 wicker baskets, so I planned to leave 1 or 2 out. Silly me, I assumed that shelves meant usable shelves. Nope! Just enough of a shelf to hold the basket. Couldn't put books or a picture frame. I'm pretty handy, so I cut a couple of pieces of wood the size of the basket, stained and polyurethaned them to match the shelf that was part of the unit. Viola!! It now has shelves. All in all a good buy and a decent unit.
