"While very pretty to look at, it is NOT very functional for it's intended purpose. The curved bottom means that anything other than a plate will not stand upright, therefore resulting in a loss of space for other items as the dishes kind of just 'pile up'. The silverware holder's slates are too far apart, so the silverware slips through. Very aggravating!!! I'm actually going to just put moss in it and plant flowers next summer on my porch!!"
