I bought this for a christmas present. Its a great size for what I am using it for, its a bench in our breezeway. It was good for the money. It would be nice if they came in other colors. I was dissappointed that there wasn't any screw plus to cover the holes where it is assembled...brings down the nice look of the item.
This bench looks very nice in the little hall by the back door. It was very easy to assemble and I've received several compliments on it. The shelves are a bit closer together than the picture shows, but shoes DO fit on them. On one side of the bench, the stain is not even, but it doesn't show when up against the wall. Overall, I love this bench and it has really helped to keep our shoes organized by the back door.
I purchased this as a coffee table because of my very small living room and was very happy to see how attractive it is and does not look like a "bench". It fits perfect and have gotten many compliments. Also, it was simple to put together.
I had been looking for a bench for my entrance hall.. I wanted one that was strong enough to sit on but not too big. This one fits perfectly. My son put it together in no time and it looks great. The shelves under the bench do not have much space but other then that I really like it.
The bench is smaller than I expected. It was scratched in several places but it was easy to put together and it is a beautiful rich color. However, this bench is made for small shoes. I tried to put a child size pair of lace up boots on the shelf and I had to really work to get them on it. Overall this is an okay bench.
I bought this bench for a friend for Christmas. I built it myself, super easy! It has a couple of tiny dings on one side, so he put that side against the wall. Its a beautiful bench, the stain is gorgeous and the price cant be beat. I highly recommend!
I love this bench! I needed it for my mud room entrance. The color is rich and goes well with my cabinets in there. It holds 2 people as we put our shoes on, which the shelves underneath holds neatly. It assembled very easily in just minutes. It is well worth the money.
This is a well made bench that is small but very functional. Shoes, dog leashes etc. can be stowed nicely on the shelves. Would not be tall enough for large shoes or boots (unless you put them on the bench part), but works well for most shoes. Good design, looks great.
This bench was simple to assemble and was exactly what I was looking for. It holds shoes on the bottom that would otherwise be scattered about. It's convenient to sit and put shoes on or off. It is also great to place bags and such as you come in the door. It's perfect!
We like the Shoe Bench very much and think it to be a good value. We needed a bench for our mud room where we could sit and remove or change shoes or boots and it is the perfect size for the area. It arrived in less than 7 days which also made us happy. We are surprised by this one thing - it did not come with the little wooden knobs you put in to cover the holes where the screws have been put into the legs. Because of this, you can see the holes and screw heads & it reflects a different color than the finish on the bench. Fortunately, it is in an area not directly seen by guests entering our home.I would recommend this item.
Purchased this to put by our back door where shoes collect when you come in the door. First, the package looked like it had been opened & taped back shut. Second, one end of a top piece of wood was damaged (no damage on outside of box though). My husband put the bench together before I got home & then asked if that's what I ordered! Some pieces didn't match up & you can see where the stain isn't because of it. Not worth the $.
This bench is very heavy duty - I was afraid that it would be light weight and lower quality. But it is absolutely beautiful! If your shoes are taller than 4 1/2 inches, it will be a tight fit. My husband's boot-type shoes didn't fit. But who cares - mine and the kids' all fit! Not only can you use the two shelves, but the floor serves as a 3rd shelf. Excellent product for the money!
I love this shoe bench. I grew up in a house where we did not remove our shoes when we came in and I always wanted to institute this policy when I bought my own house. Well, here I am in my own house and I have an enclosed front porch and a mud room where I ask people to remove their shoes...this bench is in the front porch and I intend to get another one for the mud room. It is beautiful, sturdy and was so easy to assemble. They even included the allen wrench with the hardware. I had it assembled in ten minutes and it is now gracing my front entryway.
This bench looks even better in person. Sturdy and attractive wood look. Has a nice shine too. I was thinking of initially keeping this in my laundry room for shoes, but now after seeing it in person.....it will look nice in my front foyer. This isn't something I need to hide in a laundry room....looks like a quality piece of furniture (nice to sit on when guests need to take off their shoes).Great buy - great price. Love it.
