Beautiful and a Bargain. After extensively searching the net for a shelving system I found this. It was supposed to be backordered almost one month after I'd placed the order, but it was the nicest I'd seen so I ordered it. [...] True to the description I merely had to unfold it to put it together. I immediately put it outside, placed my potted plants on it and took a good look. It's a great piece, acts as a plant shelf, windbreaker, privacy screen and nice addition to my patio furniture. I don't regret my purchase one bit and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice outdoor shelving system. Great look. Great Price.
Worth the wait. I searched online relentlessly for more than a month to find something that would provide additional counter / storage space in our tiny kitchenette at work. I considered many other furniture options other than a baker's rack - too wide... too narrow... too low... to high... too deep... still not enough space for a microwave, toaster and other items. When I began looking at baker's racks there were still many things to take into consideration - depth, particularly at the base... the legs (some have scrolled legs in front that could be a tripping hazzard)... how many shelves... sturdiness. When I stumbled across this item, it was much more than I had hoped to spend, but it seemed to be the best solution for our needs. I ordered the item only to find out it was on back order and I had to wait another month before I received it. When it arrived I took a deep breath in anticipation (hoping nothing would be wrong with it!) and opened the carton. It took a bit of work to get it out of the carton because it was well packed, but once out it only took about 15 minutes to assemble the rack. It unfolds and the slate shelves slip into place. It was very easy. The rack fits perfectly in our little kitchenette. The microwave fits perfectly on one of the wider slate shelves, the toaster (a longer design 4-slice) fits on one of the smaller wire shelves, although I had to find something to put under the toaster so it would sit level (I purchased a cookie sheet with a rim which is a good solution because it will catch crumbs). All in all, I am very pleased with this item. My only disappointment is that it does not have a drawer which we really could have used.
sturdy & substantial. I put this rack in my kitchen to house mixer, cuisenart etc. Works very well & doesn't take up too much space. I bought the rusted iron for Florida--I hope it doesn't actually rust in our humidity. The color has a bit of rust/red in it. Not a perfect match with black wrought iron. Very pleased. There is NO assembly, but it was a bit difficult for me to get out of the box. [...]
