Bought this for a Christmas gift for my son and his wife for their new home entryway. Nice size, good storage, handy to sit on for putting on and taking off shoes. However, I have noticed recently that the seat cover is getting stained. The seat cushion covering is a glorified vinyl-like burlap. Can be covered with a better fabric-probably will need to....
I purchased this bench for my entry way and love it! It's the perfect size for my space(not too big yet not small) and we use it every day to put on shoes. It's easy to put up and sturdy especially given the price being so reasonable. The seat is easy to clean as well. It took me a week to finally purchase and looking up different styles (shipping was fast and came damage free). So glad I bought it, so if you are thinking to get it just go ahead it's a good buy!
I can typically build/put together things like this... first thing when I opened the box was that the bottom, support board was broken in half. I decided to get out the wood glue in lieu of returning it. Guess I should have just returned it. While I was able to glue the board the instructions are horrible and when I inserted the locking screw and turned it as instructed, it created a bulge in the piece rendering it completely useless. I put the whole thing back in the box. I guess I should have paid a bit more and gotten a more quality piece.
If looking for a fairly inexpensive entry bench this is the perfect piece. Simple enough that doesn't fight any style, does the job of storing shoes under. Heavy to lift it up when assembling - but not hard to put it together like other people said. Little DIY skills and it will get done. Not the best quality but good enough for its purpose
I needed a very basic bench for the entryway to my apartment. This was the perfect little addition to that space. There's nothing incredibly fancy about the bench but it definitely serves its purpose. I just purchased some nice little baskets to place in the cubby areas. That definitely spruces the look of this bench. Great value!
