Everything was easy about assembling this piece accept the drawer. It comes with the drawer hardware but no pre-drilled holes and it is hard to line up after the piece is assembled. Being that this was the last step I was not interested in undoing everything I had done to put the hardware in the appropriate place. It is in fact doable, but not easy. Otherwise I am very pleased with this piece. thank you.
I've had trouble with furniture being delivered from overstock before, but this arrived in nearly perfect shape. There was only one place where there was a bit of a dent, but overall, I was so impressed with the quality of this bench. It's beautiful, and was such a steal! Assembly took a while, but wasn't necessarily difficult. The drawer is a bit tricky though. Wish the instructions on the screw placements had been much clearer, because in the end, the drawer doesn't close all the way because of my screw placement. Still, it's hardly noticeable. Thanks!!
This bench is exactly what I needed. I love the traditional concept with a clean lined look. It is in my entry way with 2 bins beneath to house shoes that we need on hand but don't want to look at. My husband assembled it with ease, and it looks great. The only complaint I have is that the wood is a softer wood, and easy to marr. Since it is in a place where it will not get heavy use, that isn't that big of a deal to me though. Everyone who has visited comments on it... a nice addition to my entry way.
I was very excited to get this bench for my office; I reviewed and shopped for weeks before deciding on this bench. I started to assemble it after I did verify that all parts were shipped (they were and padded for protection). But I broke two cam pieces with my old-fashioned-non-electric screwdriver! So I never have finished fully assembling the bench and it sits alone and mangled in the corner of my office until I can get to the hardware store to see if there are replacement parts for my poor bench. Please also note I probably would have broken more but I stopped until I can get better made pieces. Please also note I am female so it wasn't like I was some big strong brute that just broke it....
