This bench is adorable. Got the "oil" color, a natural stain. The bench is small and demure, measure and check before you buy. For a sitting area near the door it's great (E.g to look for keys in purse, remove shoes); I am not sure I would sit on it for hours b/c of its size. Easy to put together (two people, but someone handy could do it alone, I'm sure), took about 30 mins. The drawers are small so if you're looking for major storage it's not the one. It's sturdy and looks fantastic.
Was very hesitant to buy "assembly required" furniture online, but decided to give it a try and I am very pleased. A good solid bench, but not too heavy to move around. Husband put it together with little difficulty and we are both pleased. The size of the bench is perfect for a small area on my porch; so glad I went for it! As of today, the only concern is the possibility of water accumulating in drawers, will have to keep a watch on it when spring rains begin to fall.
We received our bench on time every piece fit to a tee, instructions were excellent, had it together in 15 min. I coated the bench with polyurethane, it now looks like a fine piece of furniture in our enteryway. We get many, many complements. Thanks again OS.
good thing i enjoy doing this sort of thing. i am positive that if most people recieved this bench in the condition i recieved it in... it would be UNACCEPTABLE. i took multiple photos of it i was in such shock that this could happen- or that such a damaged item would be sent- to be fair it seemed to be damaged on the way or in the warehouse- the breakage looked mostly new- it took lots of glue- wood clamps, a drill, and two screws and some wood tint (to cover up the breakage marks/ where white wood showed through- yes it was THAT damaged- it took me working alone, a few hours to repair it and put it together (and i am very good at these things). no idea what recourse i have when this type of thing happens- but i do know i will hesitate before i ever buy furniture from Over stock again!
Exactly what we wanted for our entry way. A little rustic and retro-looking, it fits nicely with our home's cottage look. Solid, quality bench that will withstand heavy use. Little drawers are perfect for helping small kids organize their belongings. My husband assembled this in less than half an hour. I was impressed with Overstock's speedy delivery.
the chair is very sturdy however it needed fixing due to damage during freight? Luckly...i was prepared. It's built with very sturdy "solid" hardwood, similar to teak. My chair came with a broken dowl-joint and needed 2 screws and some gorilla glue which made it even more secure. No one can tell it was damaged and I saved a VERy good find.
This is in my entryway. The drawers are pretty small, but I keep my gloves in it at winter-time, and the dog leash in them year round. I sit on it to hook his leash on several times a day. It' gets a lot of use and I get many compliments on it. I wanted to be sure it could hold 250 lbs with myself and my dog flopping on it, I wanted to be sure it wouldn't cave it. It's very secure and safe.
This bench is so awesome. It fits exactly where I wanted. It was really easy to put together by myself. And it looks great! I bought it for my dog, so she could see out the window and I put a couple of cushions on it and they are great together
Was looking for a small bench to put on my front entryway and this is just perfect! Two small people can sit on it. I wanted it to take off boots and just to make the front porch look more inviting...does just that!! Very pleased with my choice.
This bench while once it's together it's pretty sturdy and serves it's purpose, it was ridiculously hard to put together. None of the screws lined up with bolts and two of the drawer runners broke in the process. Had it come already put together it's great but not worth the effort to get it together!
This was a good buy. There was some minor rustic kind of scratches but I took it as that, rustic. You can't really notice unless you really look hard into the bench. My husband fixed it in less than 20 minutes or so. One of the easier ones and we jut love it and it gave a classy look to our porch.
This is the perfect little bench for our very small condo deck. AND it matches the Acacia table and chairs we bought perfectly. It's big enough for two small people or one normal sized person. The drawers are VERY small but will hold a small garden trowel and other odds and ends (like the umbrella tie). Wood is higher quality and the bench is very sturdy and relatively comfortable. I like the rich color as well. One side note, we will likely drill some drain holes in the drawers so water doesn't pool. That's one of the only drawbacks. Otherwise, lovely addition to a small outdoor space. Love this little bench.
I was looking for a small bench out our back door on a covered porch. We use it to put shoes one/off and my little kid likes to hang out on it watching the dog in the yard! So it is a compact size for a small space which is what we were looking for. Its rustic looking and was pretty easy to put together. There are some tiny drawers which come in handy but the little wooded stops that prevent the drawers from going in too far were pretty cheaply put on and one was broke already. That being said, I could of just asked for a replacement part but I surmise they would of asked for the whole bench back to have it replaced, so it was my call to just keep it -- it didn't affect the use really. I don't open the drawers much anyhow. Love the finish of it. Its under a covered porch. On one hand the description said outdoor/indoor use but then on one of the questions, one of the customer service people said it was for indoor use. Its not cedar but the wood material is of such it could probably take a few dunks in the rain, but I wouldn't leave it uncovered all season if it were me. I might take it in during winter time because I don't want snow to drift on it! I think the price was awesome given how much I looked for a bench like this.
