Needed a bench in the mudroom with space for baskets to hide all the shoes and a place to sit when putting shoes on and off. The cubbies fit a standard wicker crate almost perfectly. Unfortunately the handle side was a bit long so I turned them 90 degrees. I painted the bench and no problem with the paint. Also I like the rim around the top so I can add a cushion when I get around to it. One top edge piece was slightly warped at the end but can easily be repaired with chaulk and paint touchup.
My elderly father needed a place to keep his "going out" items organized in a small space near his front door. This piece is perfect for that! He is able to sit down to put his shoes on or take them off and it even has a wicker drawer that allows him to store his winter accessories, as well as "stuff" that he likes to take with him when he goes to meetings. It was easy to put together and serves his purposes perfectly.
