Rated 4 out of 5Â by megst Unique and practical
I'm really happy with this purchase. It's pricier than I would have liked it to be. The materials really don't seem worth $200. That said, it is incredibly unique and looks really quaint in my front hall.
Like the other reviewer said, the larger hooks are like the smaller ones and swing upward (perhaps for shipping security). This doesn't bother me, though.
The biggest downside to this piece is that there is no mounting hardware included and the mounting brackets are approx. 40" apart and unadjustable. This essentially ensures that both cannot hit a stud for maximum security. I ended up securing two pieces of 40" pine boards along the top and bottom, screwing the pine into the studs and the shelf into the pine. I think this will suit our needs fine, but it's unfortunate that a more standard spacing couldn't have been thought out beforehand by the manufacturer.

I love it. Although the one I received is a little different than the one pictured. The large hooks are actually just like the small ones, but larger (not loops like in the photo). Three of the four screws had fallen out and were loose in the shipping box. I used some heavy duty glue while screwing them back in, as the wood shelf is actually hollow, so there is not much for the screws to grab onto.
