The bench looks great in the entryway and we love the drawers. The only criticism I would give is that when assembling the bench, some of the drilled holes on the drawer pieces were too big for the screws so they did not catch when screwing them in. Other than that, putting it together was pretty easy.

My bench arrived on time. One of the sides was broken. I called the company. They had my information on hand and the replacement piece arrived within a few days. Overall I am very satasfied with my purchase.

The bench fits wonderfully in our front hall. I had a tough time finding a bench that was narrow enough to fit in our space, so was happy to find this one. The instructions are well done and easy to follow. The color of the bench is true to the picture shown and it when built, looks very "*****.

Great country style bench. This is not white so do pay attention. It is antiqued a bit with scuffed edges and an off white color. Super cute and sturdy. Exactly what we were looking for, but if you want white you will be disappointed. We bought two and we are so happy we did!

Purchased as a gift for my daughter. She loves it and has had this for about one month. Excellent construction. The color is very nice in life. Very roomy inside and perfect for storage and additional seating when needed. Easy to move from room to room. The perfect choice for for a storage bench.

Easy to assemble, quite sturdy, clean white color, and great size. We use it on our outdoor porch.

The bench is a fine addition to our home, but assembly was a real challenge. It's basically a million pieces with weak supporting details, poor illustrations and a foreign language description of how to put it together.

Overall, happy with bench, but putting it together was a challenge. The instructions were shrunk in sze to fit on a half page and the detail was so small as to be unreadable. If you have carpentry skills or an aptitude to know how furniture should go together, then you'll do fine, otherwise get a friend to help interpret the diagrams. As an added structural security, I opted not to use the cheap school-type glue/jpaste provided and instead used construction adhesive which should help hold the bench together for decades. It wouldn't hurt to buy a dark brown furniture stain pen to color in a few spots on the bench where the factory stain was light and didn't exactly match the rest of the bench.

The bench is a solid bench with nice color tones. It was a little challenging to put together but can be accomplished if you take your time. The instructions are minimal with very small print and diagrams. Don't tighten down all the screws until the unit is together I was a little challenging to find a nice cushion to fit but found one that was 33 1/2 inches long and worked out nicely. I love having the three drawers to store the dog lease, hats and gloves.

I bought this for my mother for Christmas because she had been looking for a ottamen for her not so large living room. The piece is still a very good size though with a great rustic look for her country decor. It's super easy to essemble becasue the only thing that you have to do when it arrives is scew on the legs and whalllaaa. If you are looking for a piece of furniture that is very versitile - this is it. Looks great under the window, as a footrest, and doubles as a coffee table with storage space.

We needed a small storage bench for people to put on shoes near our doorway. This one is smaller than most benches and was a perfect size for our space. It would seat two children or one adult. The color is very close to the picture on my screen. The top may be slightly lighter. It is a little wobbly but that can probably be fixed with some felt pads on the legs. The bench came assembled in one large box about a week after I ordered it. I am thinking that I might add cushions to the top. There appears to be some barely noticeable white glue? between the seams in the top. Two kitchen chair cushions fit perfectly as my temporary solution to make it more comfortable. The basket drawers feel sturdy and slide smoothly. They come all the way out if needed. The drawers are large enough for a few pairs of socks and slippers. This piece is nice addition for a nice rustic, country piece. I'm happy with the purchase.

We got this to clean up our living room to put video games and blankets in. I must say it's deeper than we originally thought and the quality is outstanding. We were hesitant on it being a pop-up that it would hold a person to be used a seat as some mentioned, but it can hold me and my kids just fine, and we total over 400 pounds. The kids run, jump, and crash it into all the time and it holds up just fine. For a small fix to a clutter problem, this is definitely a must. I was hesitant at first but now I'm glad I made the choice to purchase it.

looks great in our entry, deeply padded, rich color, we live on a very rural country road and the ability to shop at any time and have the bench delivered was a real treat, the reveiws were a big factor in helping make my decision to purchase

Exactly what was needed at the foot of our king size bed to put on sox & shoes. Our granddaughter said it would make a great time-out seat for her brothers because it was comfy and they could stay there a long time.

I am very happy with this Hillside Oak Country Bench. I like the quality, style and wood finish. The directions for assembling the bench were straightforward and we had no problem putting it together. It looks great in our foyer! For the price, this is a nice piece of furniture.

I was so excited to get this bench. It did not disappoint! A great value! We are using it in a semi formal country chic dining room which is the entrance of our house. It will sit in front of a Pottery Barn Benchwright Table and 4 linen tufted chairs with naileads. The bench adds something unique and unexpected to the look and matches perfectly with the light sand colored linen chairs.

In the end, the assembled bench looks nice. However, I had to do a fair amount of my own work to make up for some shoddy wormanship by the factory. There were dowel holes that were poorly drilled (so the dowels themselves did not fit snugly), the finish was uneven, poorly illustrated assembly instructions, etc. I used glue, bar clamps, and some additional bracing hardware to improve the bench. Without that, it would have been a pretty mediocre completed product. Note: the instructions say the bench will support 240 lbs. So though there is room for two people to sit, it better be two people that weigh less than 120 lbs each. I added some L-braces under the seat to allow for added weight. Also, the drawers underneath the seat are exremely small; each will hold two to three pairs of gloves, no more. Maybe I should have expected this given the bench's stated dimensions, but it was still surprising how little the drawers hold nonetheless. Buy it if you want the beginnings of a decent looking bench. However, it's not a bench I assembled easily, nor is it one that provides much storage.

I've had the bendch for months now, and it's so wonderful. I love the storage compartment which keeps the room clutter free, and the kids love it because is where they sit and put their shoes in th emorning. I love it, is a great piece and it matches everything in my home. I can put in the kitchen, living room and it looks nice. The assembly was not bad at all, picture illustration is what you get, and it's pretty easy to follow, but make sure to lay out all the piece first so you don't get confuse. But my overall satisfaction for the benches tha t purchase is pretty great, and I'm satisfied. I would definitely recommend to this to friends and family.

This is a wonderful little piece of furniture, as the title suggests. First off, overstock just always amazes me with their speedy delivery and I was very excited to get this piece. I wanted to use it to store my preserved wedding gown, but it's a bit small for that, but it still looks wonderful at the end of our cal king bed. It's so functional, that I could see us moving it elsewhere in the house if we got tired of it being in the bedroom. I am more of a shabby-chic, country french type, and this bench is pretty "modern" looking; however, it's so mellow that it really meshes well with a variety of styles. I know that linen is very popular right now, but I worry that when we start a family, we might have some sticky fingers and then linen would be much more difficult to clean. I love this little ottoman, but it's not a hand-made piece so, to me, it doesn't deserve 5 stars. There are small imperfections that I honestly didn't expect for a $300 ottoman, but I know that you can spend quite a lot more. All in all, a wonderful buy and I don't regret it one bit. Lastly, I'll say that I read a lot of argument over the color - uhhh, maybe I don't have an "eye" for subtlties but it is definitely creme just as described. I know we will enjoy for years to come - there is a timelessness to it that is very attractive and it looks stunning against our hand scraped hardwoods. Added bonus - it comes with a cat trap. :) Our cat climbed in the empty shipping box IMMEDIATELY. I hope this helps someone make a decision: I'm the most indecisive person ever so reviews really help sway my opinion and I feel like the tufts were a nice touch: personally, I liked that they weren't covered in buttons but to each his own!

The wicker is substantial and the profile is low. I used it as an end of bed bench. Works well, though a tad wide for that purpose. Works in my room due to amount of room I have, but may not for all. Can be used as coffee table as well obviously - works great with French Country Decor. My product arrived with supporting under slats broken - likely due to shipping. Other than that - if Overstock agrees to replace or send new ones - it is perfect for my purpose and decor, at a GREAT value.
