This item arrived with some of the paint already missing. After two weeks out in the blazing New Orleans sun, the bench has already started to peel. I would not be surprised if this was actually interior paint on this item as opposed to exterior paint as it advertised. It looks nice, but the quality of the paint is awful.

There was a small nick on the seat and I called the manufacturer to see if I could get a little touch up paint. They didn't have any, but offered to send me a new seat. One of the screws in the side arm was also overtightened when assembled by the factory and the wood split. The company is also sending a new arm. I cannot say enough about the customer service experience.

I would not recommend this to anybody who wants to use this as outdoor furniture. We have not even had the furniture a year and the wood is dissolving. It does not last, and I have always been happy with all the furniture I have gotten from Overstock. I am going to see if they can refund or replace due to the fact that it has not been a year and the furniture is destroyed.
Purchased the bench to compliment my 2 rockers on my front porch. Very comfortable and sturdy. Some minor blemishes out of the box. Recently had a party at my home and many of my guests commented on how comfortable the bench was on my porch!
The arm was broken off when I received this item, which is the second item I have received from Overstock where it was damaged. I was able to put the arm back on with my tools and wood glue at home, but it took an additional 2 hours to put the bench together.
The first bench arrived crushed, a replacement was quickly sent and was not damaged. This company does not provide any packaging materials, so it's kind of a gamble. The bench is very attractive and seems durable, but was kind of hard to put together. It definitely takes two people.
This is a great bench, I have it in my foyer. Great storage, we use the drawers for gloves and scarves ... and a great place for my daughter to sit and put on her shoes while heading out the door! It was easy to put together and very sturdy ... I love it!
The bench arrived in just a few days in good condition and was easy to assemble. I thought it was a good value for the money. Seems to be durable and the finish was without blemishes or flaws. It is perfect for my utility room and adds a spark of color. Over all I was very pleased with this purchase
Bench was fairly easy to put together, but arrived with one of the arms "broken", the wood arm had cracked. By the time it was out of the box and the assembly begun, I noticed the split in the wood. At that point it was easier to get wood glue and a clamp and try to repair rather than re-box and re-ship. I guess that is the risk of ordering large items, too much hassle to return sometimes.
