Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kay They changed it for better!
My husband gets frustrated building things like this so I text my neighbor and said would you be willing to try and do this with me? Well the two of us with classical music in the background just slowly read the instructions and put it together no problem. Took a little over 2 hours.
Nothing was missing, and they need to update because they got rid of the cam locks that broke and changed design using small wooden dowels instead. Didn't come with wood glue or tell to use it but we did where all the dowels went.
The finished product looks great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DunwoodyMom Lid is too wide
Lid is too wide and scrapes sides of arms. The seat is a little shallow, would be good for kids.

This bench is smaller than I thought, but still great. Because of the size of my apartment, it's actually a good thing it turned out smaller than I expected. I'm using it to store sweaters in, so was surprised and irritated to learn that the bottom and back are 1) flimsy masonite and not solid wood like the rest of the unit and 2) have huge slots in them that I now have to go buy cedar tongue and groove to cover up since I can't use my little cedar balls as they would simply fall out. It was fairly easy to put together, however, and looks great. I did have to move the lid closing mechanism because when installed in the position in the directions, the lid wouldn't even open all the way. I'm still happy with this purchase, though.

The bench looks nice but as another reviewer said it is darker than it appears in the picture. The assembly was a pain and the screws stripped while assembling so we had to cut them with a hack saw so we could close the bench. It took nearly three weeks to get as it was shipped to someone else entirely and we had to wait until that was figured out before they could ship us a new one. All in all, it looks nice but we had to forego some parts (the lid brace), cut some screws out, etc. So I would not recommend this product for the hassle as well as paying that much for furniture that is not quality.

I like the bench however when I unpacked it the lid had a dent in it. I called Home Depot and a new lid was shipped immediately. This was all good. However, when I received the new lid the pilot holes for the right and left end hinges were totally misaligned. One corner of the lid was also slightly damaged. It was very frustrating having to line up the hinges and redrill the screw holes. Other then this I am pleased with my purchase. I would suggest that the corners have a cardboard cap put on them in addition to the bubble wrap. This might prevent the corners from denting during shipping.

It was extremely easy to put together and all wood except for the most important part which holds everything, the bottom piece is made of pressed wood board. Not going to hold heavy loads. Perfect for shoes though. I have 30 pairs in mine and it's holding just fine.
