I'm not gonna lie to you guys, I was expecting something better. On the pictures displayed at the website, you could not tell that the product was so low quality. The top of the bench wasn't even made of MDF, but some kind of pressed cardboard. I'm a little disappointed... Hope to get better luck next time.
Purchased to put at our back entry for shoe storage and to sit and change shoes. Looks nice and sturdy. My husband had it together in 30 minutes. Very pleased with my purchase; what I needed at a reasonable price.

This bench was a breeze to put together. My 7 yr. old grandson and I put this together in about half an hour. Very strong construction after completed. Even held him as he danced on the top to show me how strong the bench is. The finish is smooth and easy clean. Perfect for a child's room.

This item was purchased as a gift for Christmas and was not put together until a day or so prior to the event. It appears to be everything advertised and fits perfectly in the location it has been placed. The individual for whom it was purchased made a coat rack with hooks and placed above it on the wall the exact length of the bench and they are a perfect match. I am quite pleased and satisfied as is the gift recipient.

This bench is perfect for what I wanted it for. It is situated behind our couch and holds extra throw pillows in one cubby, a bin of magazines in another cubby, and board games in the third cubby. It is perfect for some extra storage of cute stuff! The cubbies were a little smaller than I expected but they work fine!
Needed a bench in the garage for my kids to sit on to remove their cleats. Didn't want to spend lots of money. Read the reviews on this bench and thought I would try it. Not disappointed at all. Looks great, like a pottery barn one. Directions a little confusing in which they don't tell u which side up/ facing.. One side finished one not, had to re do it once but I put it together myself in about 30 min.
You get what you pay for. I never write reviews but you need to read this. DO NOT BUY THIS!!! This reminds me of the free stereo cabinet I received in 1984 when I bought my ** dollar stereo unit from ****. Yes, not even **** ***. This is particle board and laminate. Not even medium density board. The bottom piece and bottom trim broke during assembly. Yes, during gentle assembly by a SURGEON. I kid you not. This is of such poor quality and is so ridiculously crappy I would not waste your money. I need to contact Overstock for a refund so I can find one to buy. I would not feel safe sitting on this...oh yeah, its a bench. RIDICULOUS.
After doing thorough research between many stores and online shopping, I settled on this bench because of the price and the reviews. When it arrived, it was well packaged with nothing broken. I'm not the best at reading visual directions, so it took me a little bit to orient myself, but I (a 26 year old girl) was able to put together the entire bench on my own. It was the best length to put at the foot of my bed, because a lot of places have benches that are much shorter, and it works perfectly as a bench for my studio apartment. The only con that I can think of for this bench is that it is a little bit high to sit on for people that are petite. Otherwise, it is really well made and very well priced for what you get. I would definitely recommend it to other people who would need a bench like this.
This bench fits perfectly in my "Twister Safe" tornado shelter. The cubbies hold water, snacks, copies of my important documents, and a blanket. Since storage is kept out of the way there is more floor space left in this 4x6 shelter for the family.
