Smaller than I expected. They would be good indoors or outdoors. They are oil finish so if you are going to place outside I would purchase oil with UV inhibitors at Home Depot and rub them down every once and a while. I purchased two of these. They come in three pieces - two sets of legs and the main body. I did have to spend some time on both benches because of misdrilled holes. I had to use a rasp to make the holes slightly bigger so that I could position the screws correctly. The drawers ride on wood slides so they will be hard to open (wood on wood), especially if left outdoors. I put some oil on the slides and it seemed to help. The drawers are large enough to fill with stupid stuff that you would find in your kitchen junk drawer. If you're putting these outside I'm not sure what you could store in them as whatever is in there is going to get wet. They would make great stands to put plants on.
