This bench/cubbie is great. It is so durable. I put it together without my husbands help and it is a very solid piece of furniture. We are using it as a window seat in our daughters room and I have no worries about her sitting on top of it. It is great and well worth the money.
Whenever I see the "assembly required" my heart sinks; however, after reading the on line customer reviews I felt reassured. As it turned out, it was not particularly difficult and only took about a half hour. Very pleased with Overstock, have not disappointed me yet!

We were happy to get such a good deal on this basic room storage unit. It mixes well with a more upscale line of my daughter's bedroom furniture. It has a good amount of room per cube. She has taken to hanging out on the floor and so this serves as a good height as well for her to put things when she is sitting on the floor. It was easy to assemble; my husband and ten year old put it together in half an hour. Good family project, by the way.

Looking for a vanity set with large mirrors for teenage daughter. Nothing impressed me, so thought I'd make my own. This piece of furniture was extremely easy to assemble, all the parts fit, and within 30 mins. I had a study "vanity table". I will add baskets in the openings (maybe put some shelves in there), and am making a 3-piece tri-fold mirror (4 ft. high) to mount on the back. Attached a surge protector on the side (for the hair dryers and curlers) and a ottoman for seating - voila!! A fine vanity set that should last a long time!
PROS: Exactly as described. Perfect bench for our entryway. Easy to put together. CONS: When following directions to build it if it isn't going smoothly then you are not using the correct piece in the correct way. It seems like lots of parts but once you start it is not bad. Had it together by myself in less than one hour. Only have had it up and in use for a week now but seems sturdy.
Obviously, this is OSB and press board. The finish is durable. The construction is sturdy. Doesn't squeak or wobble. Took about 30 minutes to assemble. Did most of it with a cordless drill on the lowest torque, then snugged all the fasteners with a screw driver, hammered the back on. Use ours as a place for the backpacks and seat for putting on shoes. A little tall for the kids to sit on. Wife wants to incorporate a door, shelf and hook to make it more of an entry piece.
