  • Just what I wanted

    This was hard to put together and one of the screw thingies snapped but there was an extra so it all worked out. It is the perfect entryway bench to stow backpacks and to take off shoes after school. Looks really cute!

  • Wood Storage Bench

    Very satisfied with my new entryway bench. It was more difficult and time consuming than I anticipated to put together.

  • Nice sturdy bench

    As stated by other reviews, this bench is very hard to assemble. My husband & I spent two hours assembling this bench only to experience a problem in the end. The problem in the end was our fault and I felt sick about it considering how much money we were paying for this bench. Contacted customer service and they were wonderful. I have honestly never received as much support from a customer service staff as I have found from Overstock.

  • Nice Entryway Bench

    After reading several reviews and comparing to other benches, I purchased this. This is a nice bench that will go very well if you have light or bright colors in your entry way. It suits its purpose, and allows 2 people to sit at the same time. The storage space is not much but enough to keep some small items. Assembly was quick, the most difficult part being screwing in the reinforced sides with around 48 screws. If you have a powerdriver that might be quick, but then I am not sure if the material will hold and NOT crack. Overall took me around an hour to put it together. Otherwise simply a great and a classy choice!

  • Bench Storage Review

    My husband and I took our time and followed the directions to assemble the bench. We needed a power drill and it went together nicely. It looks so perfect in our entry way. It is sturdy and holds many pairs of shoes. Just what we wanted.

  • A nice touch

    This bench is a little bit lower than other entry way benches I have sat on but it does fill in our little cove nicely. The product is light and easily assembled. The only part I had trouble with was the spring arm that opens and closes the storage lid. When installing this piece initially, it was somewhat confusing as it looked like it was bent the wrong way. After assembling it together and closing it, the sound that it makes the very first time, sounds like you are going to tear the wood apart and the screws would rip out. That is the only thing that concerns me. We are now scared to even open and close it for storage because the arm is so strong.

  • Definitely not what it's all cracked up to be

    This piece came very well packaged and was not damaged. My husband is very adept to building items out of wood, and he's had much experience putting furniture together after buying our new house, I thought this would be cake for him. With his knowledge, patience, and skill, it took him considerably longer than expected. He's a perfectionist, and when he encountered the defect of the lid not being able to be brought down without scraping against the arm of the bench, he tried his best to reposition and re-align the lid, though the bench comes with pre-drill holes. Drilling new holes when the lid is just off by a hair will result in an even larger hole since it'd be so close together. It's a beautiful piece, don't get me wrong, but after purchasing it on sale with a fantastic coupon, I still regret blowing my money on this. The quality just isn't there, quite disappointed. Also, another thing to mention, I purchased this piece, wanting something that was taller than most benches because of the higher ceilings in new houses. Well this is a taller piece, but I didn't take into consideration that it's a short back and because it's "taller," the seat is actually lower than most benches. I'm 5'5" and it is not comfortable. My knees reach at an awkward position. This looks like a child's piece of furniture.

  • Great touch to entryway

    While this lovely addition will grace your foyer or entryway, be warned, it will make the most patient of husbands cuss like a sailor when being assembled! But it's worth it ;) (sorry honey)

  • Quality Could be Better

    While the product is beautiful, the quality of the material was very poor. The bottom of the bin cracked as soon as I took it out of the box and the hinge support is very stiff. Extremely difficulty to open/close. I've chosen to leave it off for now, but beware because without the hinge support, the top slams closed. Very dangerous for little fingers.
