Built it easily and it looks good. Fits 3 or 4 pairs per shelf. Untreated wood so you could paint or stain it easily if you wanted. Just don't let your 2.5 stone toddler climb up to sit on it! Woops. It never occured to me that it looks like a mini climbing frame? It creaked loudly but luckily didn't snap, just have to hope she doesn't try again. At least it's lightweight, if it ever falls on her it won't hurt!
