The bench was easy to assemble, however, two of the bolts were so difficult to screw in, I had to leave them sticking out about an inch, afraid I would split the wood. The bench looks nice although it's not heavy duty. I hope the wood handles all kinds of weather well since it sits outside, not under a patio.
We are redoing our backyard and bought and arbor to put this bench under. Very impressed with the style and quality of this bench. Especially liked that it was under the standard length of 52+ inches. The price was a steal!
Only problem with this unit was the "soft" brass screws that came with the unit. Although the holes for the hinges were pre-drilled, three of the holes in the lid (pre-drilled) were too shallow. This along with the quality of the screws caused three out of four (in the lid) to break off. Could not get two of the screws to back out, so had to move the hinge over 3/4 of an inch in order to put in the new screws ( bought at the local hardware store) which were of better quality and would not break under the stress caused by a hand-held screw driver. Other than this, a great piece for the price......
The product says it is 30 inches high x 53 inches wide x 26 inches deep, but beware - these measurements are external measurements. Internal measurements are 25 inches high X 46 inches wide/long X 22 1/2 inches deep. Additionally, it doesn't say it in the product description but the internal packaging tells you for care and maintenance: avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight, avoid extended and lengthy exposure to rain and sunshine, place under covers and or patio and or awnings where possible. This is supposed to be outdoor storage, yet you need to protect it from the sun and rain. We are keeping the product because we have now assembled it and found a home for it, but if I had the choice to go back I wouldn't purchase it.
