This was very easy to assemble on the 4th try. My fault I had one piece backwards and I don't like to read directions. Looks great with the Red Medallion bench cushion and coordinating pillows. Holds all of the family outdoor toys which make outside play a breeze to pick up. Plus my dog loves it as a lounging area.
I bought this bench a while back and it is nice but I mainly use it for patio storage more than sitting. After a while it gets a little weathered and difficult to open and close but I have had mine several years now and it has lasted a long time outside and has come in handy for storage. One thing too, I had planned on buying chair pads for it but can't find ANY to fit it. It would be nice to have optional chair pads for it to make it look a little nicer.
