If all you want is a bench to sit on occasionally and look pretty, then this is your product. That is all I wanted so I am very happy with it. It is not useful as a storage bench because it does not open up enough to allow easy access. Also, it opens from the back of the cushion which is awkward. It is also not that comfy as the seat is kind of hard, not at all plushy. You need a power tool to drill the holes. You should read the directions all the way through before starting so you understand that the legs go on the side section and not on the seat section. Overall, it's a good product for the price and I am happy with my purchase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The same, it looks like I expected from the photo
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I wanted a bench to sit on that had a back, that's what I got. In terms of quality, the seat is very hard so sitting there for very long is not an option. The back of the product is not what I would consider well finished. The seat opens from the back of the cushion and does not open fully (it is not hinged) so it really is not very useful for storage. The directions are NOT good but I had a great handyman who had the tools and brains to put it together.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate - just incomplete.
