I think it looks nice and it's hard to believe how little it acutally cost me, esp. since the metal holder was on clearance a while back at Walmart...kind of funny since Walmart now carries them in their regular stock for far more than I paid for them. I bought several along with a case of jars intending to use them for craft embellishment storage. I still have two sets for that even after using this one for a gift. After seeing how this set turned out I think I might decorate mine as well.
