We found this bench when searching for outdoor benches, and this came up in the search results somehow. We loved it, but when we put it together we found a sticker on the bottom indicating to NOT put this outside. Nice looking, but for indoors only. We sprayed metal protection on it and will take our chances outdoors though.
I love the aesthetic of this bench! I have had it now for a while and it is very sturdy. My only complaint is that it was not as easy to assemble as I would have expected. A couple of the screws did not line up well and stick out. Other than that, it makes a great entry bench etc.
Bought this attractive powder coated bench for a garden area in Key West, Florida. However, thinking that it would stand up to the elements, it looks just ok, and after 6 weeks in situ, the screws have corroded. So I'll just have to wait and see...
If you are looking for a retro or very mod look, this is your bench. Clean, simple, straight. It is well made and easy to assemble. Even though it is not rated for outdoor use I have it in a protected spot on our west-facing front porch. It is a great little accent piece and handy to sit on to put on or taking off shoes.
