This traditionally styled oak indoor bench is more than just a comfortable and convenient place to sit. It is a functional storage chest with three drawers that have plenty of room for reading material, discs and remotes, and even sewing supplies....more
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.
This bench sits on a protected veranda by the front of my house. It is petite enough for the space, but goes well with our home's (somewhat) Craftsman theme. One of my neighbors even commented on how inviting it looks. I would like to add a cushion to it, but it is fine the way it is. My husband had no problems with the assembly.
I rate this high do to the fact that it is made almost entirely of real wood & it is a very petite bench for small spaces. My boyfriend assembled it with a little bit of effort. It seems to be quite sturdy & looks like a nice peice of furniture. I only have 1 complaint. It was very difficult to find s cushion that fit this petite bench. It is definately worth the money ! I couldn't buy a price of junk from Walmart for the $150.00 I paid for this. I'm very pleased with my purchase ! 😊
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.
