We ordered this piece to handle the plethora of shoes that accumulate in our breakfast room from the garage entry. It's perfect! Solid construction and it looks expensive too. It holds over a dozen pair of shoes with flip flops and deck shoes going in the drawers and sneakers and dress shoes in the baskets. I wear a women's size 10 and he wears a men's 11 1/2. So believe me when I say it holds a lot!

I consider myself a master builder. I found this piece to be a nightmare to build. I almost sent it back or even used it for fire wood because of the difficulty building it. Instructions are the worst I've ever seen and I've seen it all.
A nice piece of small furniture

The bench is very attractive and the quality is very good. It did take my husband over 2 hours to put it together, and he is an experienced builder. The
Great Entry Bench
Hanni from Pellston, MI– Verified Buyer
I had been looking for an entry bench for quite a while, and finally found this one. We needed something with storage for three people, and this one fit the bill. It was received in perfect condition - it took a while to put together, but it went together well. For the price, it is solid and sturdy and a great value. The baskets are just woven plastic, but this suits our needs since we're using it for gloves and hats. The drawers work well and again, are nice and sturdy. We haven't used it with the vinyl cushion and probably won't as it makes the bench too high for my small daughter, and it's fine without the cushion. Recommended for anyone who needs a nice, solid storage bench!
Good quality and very functional
Ann from Williamsburg, MI– Verified Buyer
The wood looks great, nice color variations. Easy to put together, though it took me between 1-2 hours and I had to study the diagrams closely. Plastic baskets are perfect for holding boots and shoes. Drawers are small for big gloves but functional. Well made overall. Nice hardware although the handles did not install as well as everything else--2 screws did not seem to work. Overall, I love the bench, it meets my needs.

The box was damaged and sat in the garage for a week before a friend came to help me assemble it. It took us a couple of hours, and despite some confusion, we manged to build a strong, sturdy, nice-looking bench! I'm not so keen on the baskets - they are vinyl - had to be aired out on the back porch for several days. I prefer to use the bench without them, so kids can just stuff boots and shoes in the cubbies. It looks good where I have placed it, and will serve the purpose I bought it for.
Quality bench with beautiful, medium oak finish
Philip from Crestwood, IL
Delivered as promised and without any blemish. Well packed. As other reviews stated, it was a more difficult assemble than one would expect. Adjusting the cam-bolts to the proper depth to line up with the cam-locks was tedious and time consuming. Extremely happy with the end result and would highly recommend this product. Just give yourself at least 4 hours to assemble, if doing it alone.
LOTS OF STORAGE!
Vicky from Anacortes, WA– Verified Buyer
I like this very much. It holds so many odds and ends that end up in the doorway. My husband is able to put 2 or 3 pairs of shoes in the baskets and a lot of smaller things in the drawers. It looks very nice, a lot more expensive than it was. It well worth the price. My husband was able to put it together in a very short period of time.He remarked on how nice and sturdy the drawers were made.
Becca from Seattle, WA– Verified Buyer
This piece is a solid and lovely piece of furniture. It came very thoroughly packaged. Assembly would have been easier if there were a color picture or pieces were marked front/back but all together it took less than an hour to assemble. I expect this will be a piece we can have for years and already it's withstood the jumping enthusiasm of a toddler.
Very nice quality
Sarah from Iowa– Verified Buyer
Perfect for the entryway. Beautiful quality, not cheap. People mentioned they didn't like the pad, but it doesn't bother me at all. I like to put hats and mittens in the drawers and shoes in the baskets--we can fit a few pairs of shoes in each basket and a bunch of kids shoes in one basket.
