The image of this bench looks great and the dimensions were just what I was looking for. Once I received product and started assembly, I quickly learned that looks can be deceiving. Most of assembly requires two people; the pre-drilled holes don't align properly; back board is thin pasteboard; the top lid or back rail piece is warped, or not fitted properly, so there is visible space left; you have to be real careful when inserting screws because boards will crack/split; also, finish on wood can be easily scratched, so avoid placing assembly tools on bench. I don't think this product is worth the money I paid, nor, do I think it will stand up over time.
It looks nice, exactly what I wanted however the quality isn't so great. I was able to put it together with some frustration but not too bad. I just wish it was made with nicer materials but I guess for the price you can't expect much more. As long as I don't move it around too much it should be fine, it can support my husbands weight when he sits on it so we're happy.

I bought this bench to go in our Master Bath. It was easy to assemble and is sturdy. I would say to pay attention to the dimensions. I looked at them but didn't pay it much mind....and the bench is small! It would be great in a small space, small bath or kids room. In general, love it but wish it was bigger. My fault for not checking more carefully...but would definitely recommend to a friend.
I bought it for my entryway but it kind of looks dwarfed. The side panel I received was missing the holes to attach it to the bench. So I called the company and received a new one a few days later. The baskets are actually starting to leave brown marks on the white of the bench from getting pulled in and out though. Personally I wouldn't buy them again since it looks so small, but thats my own fault. I wouldn't actually sit on it though. I'm very small (under 100 lbs) and it actually feels like it dips under my weight.
This bench was exactly what I was looking for -- I couldn't be more pleased. It is small, a nice clean white, with baskets big enough for my kids to store hats and mittens. The clearance room underneath is spacious enough to tuck shoes underneath. My challenge was finding a bench small enough to sit out in the open in my laundry/mud room versus against the wall, with a low back to keep my 4-year-old from falling backwards when putting on and taking off shoes. It looks like it was made for the space it occupies and the price was right. Highly recommend it!

We had a little space in the front foyer that was missing something. But everytime we shopped for some type of furniture or accessory, it was just too bulky or wide or just didn't fit that small space. This white bench with cubbies fits perfectly. It was simple to assemble...my 7 and 11 year old sons helped and it's sturdy. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Very reasonable price and sits beautifully by the front door of our house matching the white base trims. Very easy to assemble and very sturdy strong. Light weight, but not too light. The baskets are very useful for storing the children shoes. We are very happy with it.
I loved this piece of furniture based on the photo online but buyer beware! The picture is deceiving. The back of the bench is not high enough and it looks like it is a midget bench. It looks like a piece of children's furniture that belongs in a toddler's room! Also, the baskets are flimsy and are more for looks than actual storage! I would not recommend this piece of furniture, especially because of how expensive it is. I am very thankful to Overstock that they have a good return policy and it only costs me very little to send it back!
I wanted a little bench that I could add a cushion to, I needed something to go under my bay window in my small eat in kitchen. This bench was easy to assemble and was more solid than I thought it would be. I'm super happy with it. The back of the bench is not cardboard, but it is thinner than the rest of the wood on the bench, however this does not affect it,it is still a solid bench.

The bench was exactly what we needed for the back entrance area into our kitchen. it is well made, sturdy and looks great. The baskets do scratch underneath them a little but not enough (to us anyway) to make a huge deal. It took a couple of hours to assemble but well worth the time spent for the cost of the bench. Delivery was incredibly quick. I definitely recommend this product.
My husband put the bench together for our mudroom and it looks good and fits the need. However, don't count on using the baskets. If you can put them together than you are a Super Hero. Think of the baskets as an added bonus that you don't get to use.
I am very pleased with this bench - it was easy to put together and is just exactly what I needed by my front door... The baskets hold my dog leash, dog towel, and flip-flops in one, and my purse in the other. The only thing I'm going to add is a piece of felt glued to bottom of each basket so they slide in and out a little easier. Other than that great product for the money... Sturdy, well put together, and I'm comfortable sitting on it to put on my shoes/boots for walks outside with dog.
i absolutely love this bench. although previous reviews said it was flimsy, i have to disagree. i mean as long as you aren't placing something that 300+ lbs this bench is sturdy. i absolutely love it and it works perfect in size with the addition of a back rest and baskets to hide shoes/misc.
