The bench is very nice looking, very reasonably priced and easy to assemble. The only problem with it is the six screws that come with it are of very poor quality. The hex head wrench that comes with it doesn't fit snugly in the screws and they strip easily. The hex head on one screw wasn't tapped out so the screw was totally unusable. As a result, I went to Home Depot and bough similar screws and used them instead. It worked perfectly.
We took the item out of the box and already were surprised. The bench has more of a reddish hue than expected. As soon as my husband sat on it, it cracked! (no, he's not abnormally heavy - 190lbs). Not sturdy, and not made of quality materials.... We are returning it and we don't want another one.
Great; exactly what I needed. Suits my needs and looks gorgeous.

Was harder to put together than other items I've gotten. A bit tricky with pieces.. but had all the hardware which is a bonus! Suggest having another person to assist - as pieces need to be held into place before screwing so another set of hands comes in handy and would make it an easier job to assemble.
The bench looks just like the picture. I love the color. Since I've just purchased it, I can't comment on how it wears in the weather. It was quick to assemble. My friend who assembled it was impressed enough that he expressed a desire to purchase one.
Bench arrived on time and was not difficult to put together. However, a couple of the pieces barely fit and now that the bench has been outside for a couple of months, the wood is starting to crack. Still, it looks nice and for the price, I didn't expect more.
This bench is very pretty. The instructions for building it were easy, but a couple of the pieces don't fit together quite perfectly. I'm keeping it, though. I just, sort of, muscled the pieces in and attached them with the provided screws.
