Combine function with classic style when you place this wood storage bench in an entryway or a mud room. The antique styling is accentuated by two wicker drawers which provide storage. Dimensions of the bench measure 20' x 33' x 16'....more
This bench came pre-assembled. The shipping box had significant damage but no harm was done to the bench itself. It is quite strong with the wood seating area and iron legs. There is room underneath for shoes. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the wood seating area was grayer than displayed in the picture and not really matching the basket color. I didn't mind as the top is reminiscent of old barn wood or antiqued wood. It also didn't come with a cushion but a throw pillow or 2 will accent it nicely. It is a smaller bench but it was perfect for near the coat closet where we can put on/ take off shoes and store our hats, gloves and scarves with room to spare. The baskets are bigger than I expected. It can seat 1 to 2.
The secondary function of this bench - storage - doesn't work. The drawers/baskets hang off their super flimsy wooden rails atop (as opposed to sitting on some bottom support) which are prone to cracking and coming off the moment you put any weight inside. Don't even think to use it often because they would most likely crack just by trying to slide them in and out.
My drawers rails actually came broken to start with, I guess even under the feather-weight of the drawers themselves during transportation.
This item should cost about $89 tops for the metal frame and shipping, then you could reinforce the baskets or fit/improvise new ones.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. disappointing
How accurate was the on site description of the product? not accurate
This item looks cheap. Wrought iron sides are only nice part. Box arrived with old ship label still on it (clearly another tried it & returned it). Top is weird gray stain and does not remotely match brown stain on sides. Gray wood putty visible at every seam. Also- this is a small bench. I returned this item and took a $$$ ship charge hit because I couldn't use this thing anywhere. Not up to overstock's usual high standards. Don't waste money on this!!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Poor - they use 2 different stains! Sides rich brown, top is gray
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor! Gray wood putty in all seams & filling a divot
I was a bit hesitant to buy this bench due to some prior reviews. I was very please when I received it. It was just like the picture, the size and colors were perfect. It's also a good weight, not flimsy and light weight. Love it!!!!
first and foremost, the item arrived on time with no damage and mirrored the website photo and description perfectly. there was absolutely no assembly required and the materials and construction are of excellent quality. the bench looks great in our entryway and matches the decor exactly as we anticipated!
Prior reviews are absolutely correct! Shipping condition was fine ... but the drawer slides do NOT FUNCTION. I thought, perhaps, a little lubricant, but the plastic components may as well not even have been included ... they were stripped pieces of plastic shreds right out of the box!!! Do not buy this product unless you have a handyman willing to rebuild it. Exact look and dimensions I searched for ... now I am searching again.
Perfect for all the kids crocs, tennis shoes, flip flops! Each drawer holds 3-4 pair of adult shoes. I got so sick of tripping over my twin teenagers shoes in the foyer.This is very sturdy and looks nice, not super cheap (even though it was). This was a great bargain and I'm a very satisfied customer. Now if they would put them in the drawers without being asked.
