Happy with this bench!

I feel like this bench was a great deal. It is an attractive style at a great price. I almost got a similar one elsewhere, but this one had the most solid wood (only part that isn't is the bottom-which my husband reinforced by cutting a separate piece to make it stronger. We didn't think the particle board would hold up if our kids decided to crawl in!) There was a little scratch on the top of the seat when it came, but it's not too noticeable. My only complaint is that one of the pieces had the wrong label on it. We were putting it together in order following the instructions. It wasn't until it was time to put the hinges on that we noticed there weren't marks for where to insert the bottom screws, and there were 3 black rubber sticky circles along the top edge, which seemed like they would have made more sense on the front side where the lid will hit and close. Then we looked at the front panel and saw the marks for the screws, so the back and front panel labels were opposite of what they should have been. We almost left it as it was (The back panel is actually decorative as well, but has 3 square panels instead of 4 like the front), but decided to take it apart and change it because unless you get the hinge in the exact right spot it doesn't close well. So, I recommend checking the pieces over before you start just to make sure you won't have to redo anything. It works great in our entryway and is great for stashing stuff out of sight. The slow close hinges are perfect with our 4 little ones around. No one is getting their fingers pinched anytime soon. You actually have to push it down to close it!
Looks nice but seriously flawed.

The bench is pretty, but its poor design limits functionality and durability.
Nice Entryway Bench
TCradle from Nashville, TN
The bench is study and solid. The instructions were simple but not in logical order. Before attaching the storage lid we had to unscrew the sides in order to get it to fit. Two of the screws were stripped, this is not a huge issue but it did delay the assembly a bit. Once the bench was put together we were very satisfied. It is a great addition to our entryway and the storage area is a great place to hide shoes. The bench is a good size, although two people could fit comfortably the weight limit is 200 pounds. I also believe that this would make a good toy box in a family or living room. Overall I am happy with the purchase. be sure to check the dimensions before purchasing, the bench was longer than expected.
A multi-use item
Cecil from LAMPASAS, TX
This is described as an entryway bench, but it is certainly multi-talented. We wanted a sturdy toy box / storage place in our granddaughter's bedroom, and this fills the bill. It is certainly a sturdy piece of furniture that not only provides a roomy toy box, but it is also a handy bench where our granddaughter can play with her dolls, read, or just look out the window. We couldn't be more pleased.
Nice but Difficult

Again, another item which arrived in a torn box with unreadable instructions. My husband & I began putting this together. It went pretty well until the seat lid. It went on to the point of being stuck, half open/half closed & would not move either way. That took about two hours. We gave up & asked our handyman for help. He too was confused by the whole thing, but managed to finish it in about an hour. It's a nice piece & works well (now). Still... if you don't have someone to help it may not be worth the effort.

You can't beat this bench for the price. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is. I have it in my great room under a large window. I bought some pillows that match the colors in my furniture, put them on the bench and it all goes together. The bench arrived in perfect condition and on time. It was very easy to put together.
Very nice but not very strong

I like this little bench! It was fairly simple to put together (unless you're me, which isn't Wayfair's fault, lol) and is quite nice looking. Only cos are that it only holds up to 200 lbs and the storage area bottom is a very flimsy strip of some kind of particle board, and the storage is only rated for 30 lbs. I may have a friend beef that up for me. Finally, I am doing to have to drill the holes for the four longer screws, as they are not deep enough. All in all, though, it suits my purposes.
This bench looks exactly like the photo.

Received this bench yesterday; my husband and I assembled it in about an hour without a major hitch. One of the holes was not drilled properly but other than that it went together well. The lid has great safety hinges so anyone wanting to use it as a toy box will not have to worry about the lid falling on a child's head. I was a little concerned that the color would be more red but it is a very nice dark walnut with just a hint of redness. Other than the bottom, it is a very sturdy piece of furniture. Very pleased with it.
Stacy from Milford, MI
I found that the bench was a bit smaller than I thought it would be based on the specs. I do still love it though. The product is quality materials and easy to put together. The wood is just a tad darker than in the picture but it looks so nice in my entry way! I would recommend this product to anyone!

Solid piece of furniture. Very satisfied. Easy enough to put together although it did take some time. Also, one of the wooden dowels was already put in place and broke during shipping. I don't know if this had been previously sold and returned or if this happened at the factory. Either way, the problem was easily fixed with some wood glue. Great piece of furniture especially for the low price!
