I had a very small space in my kitchen and I was having a hard time finding shelving to fit. I just received these shelves, and they fit perfectly! Also, the 5 shelves really maximize the use of space on a very small footprint. The almost-but-not-quite black finish works well with other black accents in my kitchen. It was very easy to assemble and is also very study (I've got 3 of the shelves filled with cookbooks). Love it!
