You know how some things are that cheap, flimsy stuff that falls apart or is weak? That is not the case here. This is a quality, sturdy product. Heavy to put together for one person but, a lot easier when you a) have room and b) someone to help lift near the end. Lots of pieces and some confusion on the directions but, some patience and thinking makes it go together. I would not hesitate to buy again. We have this by our garage door and use it every day.
I know some reviews were surprised by the size thinking it would be bigger but it's just right for the space we have in our entryway. It looks great and was not too hard to put together. I bought two seat cushions to fit on the bench which ties it in to the decor. It is true that the cabinet doors tend to pop open but not a big deal considering the good price.
Love this product! It is perfect for our entryway foyer. The material is very durable and looks classy in our home. I have received lots of compliments. It took my husband about an hour and a half to assemble by himself. He needed me at the end to help putting on the back. I had just had a baby and it was no problem! You will love the finished look!
I went back and forth on trying to decide on this purchase.. The price seemed a bit high and while I loved the look of it, I was skeptical. I waffled back and forth for a few weeks.. Finally just went for it and am VERY HAPPY that I did!! It arrived exactly when promised! The packaging was a bit banged up on the outiside but it was it packed well, so nothing was scratched or broken or missing.. we pulled the pieces out and the two of us had it together in an hour and a half. The instructions were very clear. I absolutley LOVE this piece,, it looks exactly as pictured.. its sturdy and looks fantastic in my entry way. I had measured this out before buying it but it still "appears" smaller than I had pictured.. none the less, still love it. I DO highly reccomend this if your looking for a small cottage piece for a entry or open hall. I am very happy that I chose to go for it!
This was the perfect price so I crossed my fingers and ordered it. It was pretty easy to put together although I know some other people complained about it's difficulty. If you've never put something together before maybe it would be hard, but it seemed pretty straightforward to me. My only issue is that the product smelled for the first week we had it assembled in our foyer. It was a horrible chemical smell which made me weary because we have an infant in the house. But the smell cleared completely after about a week. Other than the smell it is exactly as described and is very sturdy. Would recommend!
