Rated 5 out of 5Â by JessieArc May, 2016 - the instructions were very well written. All items were labeled with a number or letter that corresponded to the pictures in the instructions. The piece was very sturdy after constructed. The wood looked nice and even though the inside bottom part of bench was thin, it was still strong enough to hold plenty of shoes (mine, husband's and two sons'). I was very happy that the bench seat stays open when you lift it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by SJMcAfee Perfect size
This is exactly what we were looking for. A bit difficult to put together but very happy with size, isn't too big
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FussyHardwareGuy Furniture nice - hardware poor
The furniture piece is exactly what we were looking for, looks nice and does the job well. Problem is the hardware sent to assembly it with, it really needs help. Cam locks break at the first sign of pressure while installing. Had to call for replacements once because they broke, second time because the company sent all the hardware (again) except the cam locks, and the third time they sent the wrong size cam locks. I finally just bypassed the cam lock devices and put it together without them.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by SouthernerInIowa Looks good!
Looks good in our living room. We'd been wanting a bench with storage for shoes, for a while.
The only problem I had was when assembling, one of the hinge screws sheared off. Those hinge screws are very soft.
