This bench was just what I was looking for. Plus the fact it took only minutes to put to together. I am very happy with both the appearance and the fact it was delivered very fast. I am using it for a TV stand for my 50 inch TV. It is great.
As long as you know what this item is and what it is not, it's a reasonable good value for $110. This is a manufactured wood bench which has nice style. It will house baskets magazines etc in the cubbys nicely. It is NOT a solid wood product and it will not hold up to heavy objects on top without bowing over time. It is not something to sit on.
This is a nice looking bench and a nice size, but if I saw it in a store I wouldn't have spent over $80 for it. The material is pressed particle board so be careful not to split/shred it. The instructions could be better - we noticed 2 specific steps were missing. Thankfully my husband has lots of experience putting things together, otherwise we would've made mistakes. The bottom decorative moulding piece doesn't have any support in the center since it only attaches at the sides, so we're going to add an elbow behind it for support, since it bows in a little and could easily be damaged when moving it or bumping it with a foot by accident. The top & side moulding pieces give it a finished look, but they do reduce the hole size by 1-2" in case you look for baskets to place in the cubby holes. Also the back cover piece simply nails onto the sides and vertical boards - it doesn't recess into them, so need to be careful not to snag it when moving it around. It did arrive very quickly - less than a week - awesome!
I ordered this to go in our dining room under a window to store books, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and looks of it. It was easy to put together. We ran into one problem: When assembling, don't pound too hard on the wooden pegs that fit on the underside of the top piece. We ended up damaging the top a bit. It was noticeable but not too bad. However, when we called overstock, they sent us another top piece for free and very quickly! We have been very pleased with overstock.com's service.
we bought this bench to put in our garage so for the price it seemed like a great deal. it looks very nice, however, the quality of wood and instructions were pretty poor. my husband owns a contracting business and is very handy and he said the directions were confusing. also when he screwed in the top of the bench, 2 of the screws almost went completely through (now we have 2 lumps that are very noticeable). for the garage it will work, but if it were for inside, i would be really disappointed.
I needed a three cubby bench for a mudroom area in order to curb the clutter. Each child has a spot to drop shoes, bags & papers. It works so well that I have ordered the coat/cubby rack that will go over it for jackets, backpacks and whatever. This makes our entryway look very crisp & organized. I am so happy I chose this bench. Very nice quality and the white really brightens up the area.
It is a nice looking piece and assembly was easy to do by myself. While it is not "fine furniture", this piece is exactly what was needed to corral a couple of toy baskets in my son's room, and give him a place to sit. It is sturdy and a perfect size, it could also go in a hallway or double closet, but it is looking nice under the window and certainly enhances the room on its own and also by helping to keep things tidy!
It was a very heavy box, but once the pieces were out, it was all manageable. I am glad I chose this piece and would do it again; it looks great and serves its purpose perfectly. It is a nice addition to the room.
Love this bench. Reviews were pretty accurate - it's not the most heavy duty piece of furniture, but it suits the purpose and I found you can absolutely sit on it to put shoes on, etc. Wouldn't go jumping on it, of course.

I would like to use the white one as a guest book. If people write on this with sharpie will it stay? Or would I have to re-lacquer its surface?plinababez on Jan 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. As in the case of the other item, the finish is semi-glossy therefore the signatures/writing would probably not set. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 4, 2013
