The coat tree was easy to put together. I was sorry I didn't buy two of them. I brought it to work and the compliments continue to come. Everyone ask where I purchased the coat tree, and I tell them overstock.com. I would recommend this metal coat tree to those who want to add some vintage to their home or office. It is strudy when coats, umbrellas, and pocketbooks hang on it. I probably will purchase another one in the very near future.
