This bench is adorable. Got the "oil" color, a natural stain. The bench is small and demure, measure and check before you buy. For a sitting area near the door it's great (E.g to look for keys in purse, remove shoes); I am not sure I would sit on it for hours b/c of its size. Easy to put together (two people, but someone handy could do it alone, I'm sure), took about 30 mins. The drawers are small so if you're looking for major storage it's not the one. It's sturdy and looks fantastic.
