I really am enjoying this piece. I couldn't tell the color of the wood from the picture, and when it arrived it didn't match the rest of my furniture. I bought cherry stain for less than ** and now it's a perfect match. Very practical, in that I use it for storage, decor, and seating. I would definately recommend despite not having been able to see the color of feet well. The overall look is very classy and the size is neither too large, nor too small for my bedroom. I did find similar benches in the store that were less expensive, however it wasn't worth the struggle for me to try to get it into and out of my car.
