I love this bench, but it was a bit difficult to put together. You cannot use the bench without the shelf on the bottom - the legs will fall out (even though they are screwed in) if you move it. I would recommend this bench, but don't follow the directions. Put all the brackets on the legs, then attach the shelf to the legs, then attach it to the bench. Maybe if I had a few helpers I could have attached the shelf while the legs were already on the bench, but by myself I had to do the shelf first. Now that it's all together I love it and it looks great as an ottoman in my living room.
