I bought three of them. Originally I was thinking it's something I can paint so I wasn't stuck with just factory colours. When I was assembling it, and it's easy to do, I had it sitting on the counter and thought this would be a really cool space saving solution for my small kitchen. Now I've got one on the kitchen counter, and it holds my blender, the juicers, toaster, glass storage jars etc. Another is in the hall closet to store shoe boxes ( i use them as odds and ends storage and the 3rd is actually being used for my shoes.
