A larger than average shelving unit with some extra storage capability. This shelf would go great in an entryway or mudroom and would come in handy for hanging a coat or to set your keys. The walnut burl veneer is full of figure and adds an extreme touch of beauty and elegance to the unit. The lift up door is an interesting touch and is felted to keep from marring the shelf. The shelf is 48 inches wide x 7 and a half inches deep x 12 inches tall. The cubbies are 3 and a half inches tall x 9 and 3 quarter inches wide x 5 inches deep. I finished the unit in satin.
