We purchased this item over 10 years ago for our new home, paying over $700! We haven't regretted a MOMENT of this purchase. It's very versitle, and the storage is super handy. It's taken years of use by growing kids doing crafts, homework and now teenagers acting like teenagers. I expected the bench to be the weak link but so far, 10 years in its like new!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I have looked at all the reviews. People have problems with it because they don't read the instructions. First of all, do not use power tools to put it together. this item requires a little manual labor, power tools will only cause the screw holes to be overly bored out. If you must use power tools use a lower power setting. Basic skills can put this together but first use your head and read the instructions. Other than taking a little time to put together, I have no qualms about it. Going to get one foe my sister's family room, she likes mine so much.
This is not a high quality piece of furniture and I would not pay full price for it. I got it at a reduced price. I will use it short term.
I purchased this nook for my new house as it was just what was needed for the nook in my kitchen. Assembly was easy for me. The wood is sturdy.
Love this dining book. Fit exactly where I wanted it
Beautiful oak finish, love the design in the back.
This specific item/product is crafted with quality in mind and is a wonderful piece of furniture for either yourself or is a wonderful gift to give any friend or family for an occasion! Please make sure you look into this product and you will love it! I know i did.
This is a perfect solution for our No Dining Room situation and it seats myself, husband, and our 2 boys nicely - with room to spare! I also like the storage compartments under the benches, although the bottom of the compartment didn't last long against my toddler's excitement. It's a very thin piece of pliable wood. It took us about 3-4 hours to assemble this together, with very little trouble. But, I would like to note that the tabletop came with some pretty deep knicks, which look to me to be from a forklift or pallet jack. I didn't notice these until near the end of assembly, or else I probably would have exchanged it. Altogether, I absolutely love it :)
Very thin wood
Easy to put together and very sturdy feeling. We are happy happy happy.
