Love this little shoe bench. It was really easy to put together and sturdy. As someone mentioned, the shelves are pretty small, but its easy to just leave the middle shelf out, then its perfect for two baskets for storage if you dont need it for shoe storage. The color as pictured is accurate.
I've been looking for a shoe bench for a while and this was just the perfect size. I have small feet so it will hold around ten pairs of shoes. Not great for boots hence the 4 star rating. It was very easy to put together, did it while my baby was napping. Instructions were more than helpful. Bench is very sturdy and won't even need a cushion because the top slates make it unique.
We needed a place for people to put their shoes at our cabin, so ordered two to put in our entryway. They seem to work great, although I agree with other reviewers that the spacing between shelves is a bit skimpy. We like the finish and they were easy to put together. We might end up removing one of the shelves so larger shoes will fit, but sandals and tennis shoes seem to work just fine.
I ordered 2 of these benches for kid's shoes and they are working out fine in the back hallway after a few months use. The benches arrived quickly with no missing parts and only a small corner ding on one of them. Assembly was simple. For the price, they look good, although an extra coat of finish would improve the life of the bench. This bench is small, so be sure to check the size before you purchase. Shelves are too close together to easily see or shelve most adult shoes or sneakers, but one shelf can be easily eliminated during assembly. Overall, I am satisfied with this purchase.
I like the Bench because it organizes my mudroom. I was hoping that it had more space to put more pairs of shoes but seven to eight pairs is all it could handle. Good enough for the value plus you can sit while you tie shoelaces. So, I'm satisfied with this purchase.
this product is sturdy and very easy to put together. There are no flaws that I can see. I am not using this as a shoe bench, I am putting this in my master bath next to the tub and shower. It looks very nice and is functional as a seating area or as a place to put towels. I would buy again.
Bought this piece to sit by backdoor in kitchen area. It was super easy to put together. Looks decent. Is sturdy. Will say the top seems a little cheaply made. That doesn't detract from its usefulness, but does make it look like a cheaper piece. If you're not looking for perfection or a piece that looks opulent, then go for it!
I had been browing numerous websites and stores for a while for a small bench to put in an entryway to organize shoes -- this one is perfect! It is small, but easily fits 3-4 pairs of shoes on each shelf, plus you can use the floor underneath as a third 'shelf'. When I recieved it, the top was damaged, but Overstock customer service promptly sent a new, undamaged replacement. Just keep in mind it is on the small side, which is what I wanted, but others might want something larger.
This shipped quickly and was very easy to assemble. No additional tools needed, everything's included. For some reason I thought it would be a bit heavier, otherwise it is just like the photo. Had it put together in about 8 minutes. Finish is medium pecan, I'd say. Good for putting grocery bags, purse, shopping bags on. Only shoes that are not very tall can fit on the shelves below.
Not as nice as pictures. Really wanted a different bench but they sent one that was damaged and then sent the wrong parts.... in a huge (almost refrigerator size) box that was close to impossible to get in the door... the part was the size of a bed rail! Sad they handled it so poorly and caused so much more waste to go to the landfill.
This bench met the need for good storage and seating while taking shoes on/off. I gave the bench to my father (who is 70 +) and he really likes sitting down on the bench to change his shoes. I think the lower bench height helps make this process easier....probably a good height for young children as well.
