Seriously Simple Bench Setup I have read all the other reviews are was almost deterred from buying this bench. But because I am in an industry where I work with people I know how irrational they can be at times and knew to trust my instincts. Few people actually take the time to read instructions and get frustrated then write such poor and inaccurate reviews. It is hard to decipher which is the accurate review at times. My install took no more than 2 hours and I took my time because I read the instructions before beginning. I did touch and feel the one in the store before deciding to buy. In not ONE step of the instructions did I get confused or had to ask questions. The instructions were clear. However, I do recommend that an additional bottle of wood glue is purchased before beginning the assembly. The glue supplied is not enough. I also did note that the center support underneath needs to be rectangular not square so as to not spin and with two bolts it can be secured much better. For a particle board piece of furniture this is a nice and sturdy bench and it matches the decor in our home nicely. I expect to get at least 8 years from this. For the money well worth the value. My home desk is made of the same material and is now 14 years going strong, even after 5 moves. When the cushions wear out I will buy a piece of memory foam as a replacement insert. Glad I did not listen to the reviews this time. By the way, the cross insert for shoes problem of not staying in place, there is a simple solution to this. Go to home depot and ask for thin screws long enough to go through the sides or bottom to hold it in place. June 12, 2013
Happy with purchase but puzzled by one thing I love the shoe storage drawers as we are a no shoes household. My complaint is that you have no options for alternative cushion slip cover colors. A zipper exists on slip cover of the foam cushion so it seems like it should be an option. I am about to paint my living room a new color and want to switch cushion color. Any advice on where I can purchase them? June 3, 2013

Good product I bought this a few months ago to place at my entry foyer. I will agree with what most people are saying, it was quite difficult to assemble. I think it took me nearly 4-5 hours to assemble. In the end, everything fit and it does work very well. The only issue we have had with it was with the middle leg which is installed at the bottom, in the middle of bottom panel. it broke off after a very months, but in all honesty, i cannot see why it is ever needed. the unit comes with 4 solid corner pieces which provide more than enough support.
