As some of the reviewers wrote, the package arrived a bit beat up. The bench did not appear to have been damaged as a result yet there were numerous scuffs on the white paint. If I was planning to use this in a high profile location like the entryway of a home I would have sent it back. The bench is very easy and straightforward to assemble. Being a longer bench, I worry about the structural integrity: When I sat in the middle the wood creaked a bit. I think that the bottom line is that it is a good value on a covered front porch. If the bench is going to be out is the elements, in a high profile location, or in an area where it will be used a great deal use it probably isn't the best bet.
Nice furniture and looks good on my deck. But I was disappointed to see that it needed to be assmemled. Your ad indicated it did not need to be assembled upon delivery.

Very attractive bench but DOES need to be assembled unlike what is advertised. I found the directions very difficult to understand. No written instructions, just a drawing. Takes 2 people to assemble. Sturdy and good looking.

I love the way this bench looks on my farmers porch, I bought some blue and white outdoor accent pillows and it looks great. I was easy and quick to put together. This bench isn't as study as I'd like it to be. My Husband and I are small people and when we both sit on it, it holds and is pretty comfortable, but definitely would not put more weight on it. (maybe 250 lbs max)
