Rated 2 out of 5 by Kwing Looked great.
I have this bench in the green and it was easy to put together and looked great. Just extremely dissappointed in how anything that touches it creates knicks and scratches. I love buying llbean furniture for the reason that it lasts but while the bench is still sturdy and functional, it is definately not appealing anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OwlLady Items in this Cottage group easy to love
I purchased a small table and different bench from this Cottage series four years ago, and I can testify as to their ease of assembly and quality. When the table arrived, I had it assembled and in place before my husband got home from his Saturday errands. The finish on both pieces has survived several spills and normal wear and tear. Plus, because they are painted items, you can repaint them when you change your decor, which I have done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LighthouseLover17 Perfect!
I am using this as a bench and a place for extra shoes. It is even better quality than I imagined it would be and extremely easy to put together. Instructions said you would need two people, but I did it by myself! If you are hesitating purchasing this because of assembly, DON'T. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Balkansinger Small but ideal
I have two of these benches in sage green, which I use as small coffee tables for a pair of love seats. The instructions say 2 people are needed to finish the assembly, but I managed on my own. I love the way they look with my furniture, and the size is absolutely perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SouthGeorgia Looking good
The only disappointment I have is that once we started putting the piece together, we had trouble with one of the pieces of wood where the two screws are supposed to go. There are 4 of these pieces and two screws go in each one; however, on this particular piece the drilled holes were upside down compared to the other three and did not line up with the screw holes in the leg. Rather than box up everything and return, my husband looked at the problem. He knocked out the upside down piece, inverted it, and then the holes lined up. The only problem now is that the raw edge now shows, but since no one will see it, we will just use as it is.
I think we will end up enjoying the piece.

Very well made, looks great and the finish is perfect. I now own three pieces - this plus two of the bookshelves. Although I bought them many, many months apart the finish and color is very consistent an they all look great together.
Reasonably priced and well worth it!

Received this 26" Painted Cottage Bench today. It arrived in the expected time frame. It was very carefully packaged and the pieces were all in good condition. Assembly was easy and I was able to do it by myself, with the help of the special hex wrench that was packaged with the bolts. Directions were also easy and clear. The included plastic glides pre-installed on the leg bottoms ensure floor protection. I'm using the bench as a magazine table. It fits perfectly below a window sill in the corner of our breakfast nook. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreatBasinTrailBoss Absolutely Perfect!!
This bench is absolutely perfect! Great, soothing color, easy to put together (by myself, even though one step suggests two people work together...) and looks fantastic in our "bed and bring your own breakfast" vacation rental. Can be used as a bench or a place to display books or, even, a place to put an open suitcase down out of the way. VERY NICE. Highly recommend this nice piece that is heavy and well-built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinwoodMom Perfect bedside table
This sturdy little table arrived today and I want to add my voice to the many others already singing its praises. I needed a table to put beside the bed in my guest room/office. With its compact size and two shelves for books this fits the bill perfectly. It's solidly built and looks great. Plus, it was very easy to put together. I did it myself in 15 minutes.

I purchased this bench in ivory. It was so easy to assemble that I did it by myself in just over five minutes. The ivory is a lovely, creamy color. I plan to use this piece as a side table to hold a lamp and some books in my TV room. I'm very happy with it!
