The photos and instructions are misleading. It appears that the rack can be setup with the shelves on either side of the bench, however the placement of the holes where the screws go on the underside of the bench only give you the option to set up the rack with the shelves on the right side. Unfortunately I didn’t figure this out until it was almost completely put together. The rack itself is beautiful, sturdy and ideal for what I was looking for. The packaging it came in was covered in tiny shards of glass that felt like slivers in my skin the whole thing needed to be wiped down before I could assemble it and the shipping took longer than I felt was acceptable. Overall still a great purchase but there was a lot of hassle that came with it.
