    Customer comments about Slim 72h 42x15 Étagère:

    I have the narrow etagere, which i bought in 2007 or so. I have no complaints about that unit. However I bought the wider 42" unit this year (2013) and the finish is very uneven. It looks as though one side of the unit was not sprayed completely. The finish on top of the top two shelves is a bit rough. There were also some rusty spots and there was a bit of loose gray finish (overspray?) collected underneath the edges of the shelves. I was able to clean it up acceptably, but i would be hesitant to purchase one of these units again.

      I had a 72" space in my kitchen and used this 24" shelf together with the 48" counter top table to add both stylish and practical storage and work space. They fit PERFECTLY!! One shelf holds various liquor bottles, another a wine rack, another a fruit bowl, another large dinner plates that don't fit in my cabinets and the top has a decorative plant on it. The shelving unit is very sturdy.

                      The Slim 72h 24x15 Étagère would be sturdy enough to store pots and pans; however the finish may become scratched and worn if these items were dragged across the shelf surface.

                      A:

                      This material is ideal for book storage and the narrower widths won't have any issue for storing large, heavy books from side to side. If you are considering the 42"w etagere, you'll have the potential for some bending in the middle of the shelves over time if heavy books are stored the full width of the shelves. Lightening the load just a bit in the center of the wide shelves would eliminate the concern.
