Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile this is a great piece. it's as heavy as you think it is. we ended up using it on our screened porch as a book case (sitting on the floor) for now because we are still working on where to put things in our new house. it's very versatile, even with the industrial vibe going. just make sure if you hang it, at least one screw goes in a stud. we are using it to keep our bird feed and plant food stuff on. hopefully, we'll find a more attractive place for it later. but it's a very cool piece.
