I wanted a nice bench for entrance way. The style of the bench is very nice with the white and wood combo but when I opened the box, all of the white paint was already chipping away and the pieces of wood were flimsy. I had to re-pain the white portions myself and one piece was incorrectly sized so that the unit doesn't fit together properly. My husband will have to cut the piece to make it all fit. Not worth the money or the time putting it together
Only disappointment is the website said assembled and it wasnt

Once these (I bought 2) were assembled they were pretty sturdy but the finish on them is poor. They are made in Vietnam and llook like they were manufactured by people making 2 dollars a day, If I had not had other tools and knew how to use them I could not have gotten these benches assembled at all. The holes for the specialty type bolts used to hold these together were poorly drilled. I had to re-drill about half of them to even get the bolts in. I will probably never order from overstock again. These benches are very expensive for what you get!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? poor
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? somewhat
I bought the Acacia Bench for my front porch. The size of the bench was exactly what I needed and the black color matched my other porch furniture. The bench was very easy to put togther. It only took about 30 minutes. Unfortunately, I've only had the bench about 4 weeks and I already see signs that the paint is cracking. I chose to place the bench where it is only partially covered by the porch, so it is exposed to the elements, both rain and sun. I was hoping the paint would hold up better since it has a "UV finish." I guess I will be painting it frequently. Other than the finish not lasting, I love the bench!
I opened up the box to put this together this morning and IT HAS TWO LEFT SIDES!!! I am so DISSAPOINTED!! I got it due to the great reviews....now I guess I'm stuck because it would cost WAY TOO MUCH to send it back. The only thing that can be done is to drill holes on the correct side, then you're left with all of the holes on the outside that you would have to patch with wood putty and sand and paint...way too much work and a GREAT DISSAPOINTMENT!! I am supposed to get a call or email from the manufacter to send me the missing part (the right side). I hope they contact me. Sad, because this bench is really good looking! I hope they will make it right!!
Outstanding buy! It came in 3 days and took me 15 to 20 minutes to put together...without assistance. The box was a little torn up, but the bench was fine! It looks beautifuI! have received numerous compliments on it already! Love the bench!
I purchased this bench to serve as a visual detractor for some irregularities at the entrance of a rental. I worked perfectly and is so attractive that it is the first thing your eye is drawn to when approaching the house. Additionally, it seems to be very sturdy and was assembled without problems.
Overall, we love this bench. It looks great on our patio and really stands out in the red. It was easy to put together, as well. The color is not true to what's shown here on the site, though. I was a little disappointed that the red was darker but still happy with the product.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is actually much darker - crimson and not the candy apple red shown here.
I've had this bench for a year and I'm very happy with it. It was pretty easy to assemble...I did it by myself but could have used an extra set of hands to hold the pieces in place. It's sturdy, and looks nice. The only downside to mention is that I have the white one and it has yellowed, so I will be repainting it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same as picture
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality
I loved this bench but when it came it had scuffs and paint was chipping off this piece. It's also not the most sturdy piece either. I think it said it holds about 300 lbs max. The size is great and once you put it together (although very difficult to put together) it is beautiful!! Looks great on my porch. My husband and I use every night. Well worth the money! Although it's not perfect it does the job and I am overall happy with it.
We purchased 2 of these for our Halloween Party were having soon and they are going around our fire pit. We love them ,they were easy to put together,and once together we sat on them and everything is great. Weve already gotten compliments on how nice they look from neighbors,Thanks so much.
This bench is very sturday & attractive. I took one star off because the paint finish is by no means UV coated as it is peeling after 2 weeks outside. We'll need to repaint shortly, but otherwise it's a nice bench & a good value, particularly with shipping from overstock at $2.95.
I love this bench!! I bought it for my front porch, but the quality and sturdiness is so good that it ended up in my living room. My guests love the bench, as it is a bit eclectic looking. Was very easy to assemble - did it by myself. Now I've bought the matching acacia rocking bench for my front porch. Highly recommended!!
I was very pleased with this bench. I searched online for a white bench for my yard. This bench not only surpasses the others in looks but price too! The quality is even nicer than the picture shows. Overstock's shipping prices can't be beat either in comparison to other sites. I have received so many compliments and would recommend this bench to everyone!
