I have been searching for an entryway bench and thought I had found the perfect one. At 68 lbs. delivery weight that I wrestled into the house, I thought this one would be sturdy and serve me for a long time. Assembly instructions are a bit vague, which is common, however, even fully assembled, the bench leans precariously. The bins are tiny and relatively useless, unless you want to use it for one or two pair of ladies gloves or a few papers. We are going to attempt to fix it by purchasing larger dowels and perhaps gluing them in to offer more support. If not, we will be trashing this and going to a furniture store which, in hindsight, I probably should have done at the onset.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color was fine
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. unstable, smaller than it appears, dowels too small, cheap, my son won't sit on it for fear it will fall apart.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? No
