I would like to thank the people, that wrote reviews on this product. The reviews were very helpful in my purchase of this bench and when I received the bench it was just what I had expected. I bought the bench for my mudroom, which is not a big room. The bench was very easy to assemble and it fit perfectly in my mudroom. The stain on the bench is a little darker then what you see in the picture, but overall this is a very well constructed bench and the drawers come in very handy for storage. I would like to thank overstock.com for offering/selling a quality product.
The bench is smaller than it looks in the picture, but it is exactly as represented. It fits under my window in my entry which is just what I wanted. The drawers are small, so if you are looking for storage, it only takes small items. It is sturdy and easy to assemble.
I am currently using this as a coffee table for a loveseat because it is the perfect size for my small room. I thought I would buy this and use it for a bench but it is working out so perfectly as a table I will keep it as such. A nephew who was visiting had this put together in short order. He had no problems. I'd recomend this either as a bench (as it was intended) or as a small table for a loveseat.
I was pleased to received the storage bench almost immeadiately after ordering it. Then opened the box and found that it only took me an easy 15 minutes to put it together. It is far more attractive than I expected and the rustic appearance fits right in with all my decor. This storage bench is extremely hefty, sturdy and build well. The only negative is that the drawers are smaller than I anticipated. I was hoping to store clothing in the drawers, but there are many other items that will fit perfectly. I am so pleased I finally ordered it and not one bit disappointed. Thanks Overstock.com, you have come through for me once again!
This item is a good value for the money paid. I am using indoors and have found the product to be very sturdy. The drawers are a bit small but that does leave a fair amount of room under the drawers for other items (baskets, shoes, etc.). The finish is very nice and the bench was very easy to assemble. Overall I found this item to be a really good value!
This bench is perfect for our rustic style. Assembly was easy and solid wood benches can go for three times the price. We bought it for the family bath, however, it looked so nice, we put pillows on it and put it in the living room for extra seating. Very pleased with the purchase. The finish is not a high gloss and we polished it. It is also slightly smaller than expected but a very good by nonetheless.
It looks very nice, it was easy to put together. But it had a few broken pieces when it arrived. I made it work, but still need to do a better repair job before it gets to much use or it will probably break. Of course once you have it ripped out of the box and started together you don't want to return something this large, so you make due.
Fairly easy to assemble but one of the drawers was not glued properly and I had to reglue it at the joints. It's smaller than I thought it would be, but just the right height for my 4 year old to use as a color and drawing table. Wish the drawers were larger. Solid piece but a little pricey for the size.
I bought two to put on either side of my main entrance. They look really nice. My husband spend 1/2 an afternoon putting them together, he said he used lots of wood glue and clamped them to make sure they held up. We also purchased two loveseat cushions to place on them and they are really nice looking now.
Relatively easy to assemble, although the tooling was somewhat off and needed a little tweaking. The quality of the piece is just average, and does not justify the price. I guess what sold me on the piece was how it looks in the photo. But overall still works for what I wanted it for.
