Holes were drilled wrong, so I had to as someone to drill new ones in order to put this together. This has a distressed look, but the veneer on the front was also cracked and I had to repair it. A nice design and a good price, but a giant pain in the neck to assemble and repair.
I was so excited to get this bench as i like the graceful look of it. sadly I opened the box to find the wooden prong that holds the back to the arms broken off in the carton. very flimsy workmanship and i can't get a replacment back, but overstock is offering to send me a whole new bench, which I can take out the back and then return. too much hassle. this is a 35 lb item. in the end, i wondered if the flimsey tab would have broken off anyway. oh well.
the bench is nice looking. It is a nice size, not too long, not too short. fits about 2 adults comfortably. i use it in my entry for putting on shoes. my bench came with a chip and cracked paint at the top (this is different from the intentional distressing done to it, which is faux painted in a reddish paint). it was minor so i did not complain about it. other than this, the bench seems sturdy and was easy to put together.
This bench is gorgeous! Fits perfectly my kitchen, offers additional seating for guests as well as a storage place for books bags & jackets. This bench is very comfortable and easy to put together. I have already received many compliments! Great buy!
Good product for the price. I use as an entry way seatee and it looks great. The distressed look compliments the bench nicely. The quality is not perfect but you won't be disappointed. O's amazing prices and great customer service makes shopping online a good experience.
