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!

I purchased this bench in deep, lovely red. Even though it is recommended that two people assemble this piece, there was no one to help me, so I, a 5-foot-tall female, did it by myself in about 10 minutes or less. The bench is solid and attractive. I'm planning to use it as a coffee table and for occasional seating. I'm very happy with it!

I never wanted to order furniture online, mainly because I didn't trust it would come in good condition. But LL Bean changed my mind! I could not believe how perfectly this bench was packaged for shipment! Great color and simple to assemble. I just ordered the side table and can't wait for it to come. I have no doubt it will be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DannieL Pretty & Sturdy seating
We bought the 26" painted cottage bench in dark green 2 months ago. It was easy to put together: just me, my weak wrists,and a screw driver. The paint finsh is smooth and uniform, and the dark green color is very pretty. The best thing about the bench is how sturdy it is with daily use. It absolutely doesn't move, or shift when used. We have assembled furniture from other e-retailers that we would not describe as sturdy!
