This bench sits outside on our back deck and gets lots of sun, heat, and rain. It was beautiful for about 6 months, but now has splitting wood and cracks in paint. Better on a cover patio or screened in porch.
Really well-made, sturdy bench for outdoors. Has held up perfectly, outside, for a year now.
I bought this specifically for outdoors as it advertizes and weathering well for outdoors. One support bar cracked under the resting foot of my husband, and the color is fading being outside. it's a pretty bench, but not as durable as I had hoped.
