Rated 5 out of 5 by freqLLbuyer from Perfect after one small modification! I got a large one, which does exactly what I wanted. The only problem was that I couldn't bear ruining the lower shelf by putting my muddy, salty, wet boots onto it! I recently moved, and one of my Waterhog mats was the wrong size for my new place. Aha! I sliced off a piece of it to exactly fit onto the lower shelf. It cut beautifully with two passes of a utility knife (fresh blade), using a metal straightedge with the mat on a scrap of plywood on the garage floor. Kneeling on the straightedge (carefully) helps keep it from moving. Decided not to tape it onto the shelf: this way it can be removed for vacuuming. If LL had sold a shelf liner as an accessory I probably would have just bought that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by chickens123 from Just as pictured and described in catalog I purchased both the large rustic wooden mudroom bench and matching wooden wall coat rack in antique red during their President's Day sale. Customer service was awesome. Both pieces were worth waiting for-they are both heavy and of sturdy construction - Coat hooks are solid. It was packed very nicely although two of the coat hooks needed tightening. Antique red is just that- more deep red than bright red and boards have somewhat of a distressed look. We are using them in a newly finished walk out basement for coats, boots coming in and out from backyard and screen porch near a secondary farmhouse kitchenette. Was less expensive than custom made. I had looked at several other catalog and online options. Would recommend the large size if you have the room. Happy with our purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tungsten from Underwhelmed First the good: * The bench is visually attractive in the antique red finish. * The size is ideal for my use, and can comfortably fit two people at once. * The shoe storage shelf is very practical and useful. Now the not so great: *The bench was not level as shipped and rocked from one side to the other so I had to place a shim under one side. Shouldn't have to do this from what is typically very good LL Bean quality products. * There is an obnoxious odor from what I'm guessing is the finish, it hasn't worn off in the several weeks I've owned it. * It is a bit more "Rustic" than I expected, there are large imperfections and knots on the wood used on the bench surface so don't expect to place it in a part of your cabin or house that you want to look it's best. * Every time I sit on it the bench moans and creaks. Hoping this will disappear over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanEnthusiast from Sturdy and just what I wanted! I live in a 448 square foot rustic cabin and needed something to sit on and store items. The area is narrow, right near the back door. I took a chance on this bench and was thrilled with how well it fit in the space I had!! I liked the red because it's cheerful, but understated. Still working on this space, and need some baskets to keep things looking neat, but for now I am thrilled with this bench and would recommend it! Yes, it took a few weeks to arrive, but totally worth it. It had a slight smell of paint, but it went away in about a day or two. Long time LLBean Enthusiast. Runs in the family :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edvin1234 from Sturdy, Attractive, & Great Price We've been looking for a bench like this one for quite awhile, and while Bean was offering a 25% off sale (plus the everyday free shipping), we decided we couldn't pass this up. We are very pleased with the bench, and the price paid for it. It comes fully assembled, and it is constructed of solid wood metal hardware. This item is also extremely well packed, and I can't imagine any damage being incurred during shipping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BaystateBorn from Good BUT.... Overall the bench is a good buy BUT the finishing touches were not there. The bottom shelf is so smooth and well finished yet the top edges are very rough (as if they were never sanded) and would "catch" any material. I'm afraid to sand it myself as I would not want to ruin the finish. Too bad otherwise the bench would have a higher rating. There are some rough spots near the few "notches" but I can overlook those, its the edges the bothered me the most. If I ever find a handyman who can finish this off, I'll pay to have it done. I put "no" as a recommend to a friend because I think this is a simple quality control issue that can be fixed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sarah from Very knotty wood-- not sanded underneath, cheap There is no pride in workmanship with this piece. It looks and feels like cheap painted wood. I'll probably get it resanded because I like it enough, but there was no care and lots of low quality and low effort put into this. They used a lot of blocks underneath, which makes it seem like they took shortcuts in its construction. They used knotty wood. It looks like it will easily split and the underside was not sanded enough or at all. For the price, I thought I would be getting a lot higher quality--maybe they thought they could get away with it because it's painted red. And they can. With a couple things on top, all the blemishes are hidden. It came with dings and dents, too. Very disappointed with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WNYBeth from Great bench! Very pleased with the construction and size of this bench.The bench was delivered earlier than expected and since it was completely assembled, all it needed was a day in a large, well-ventilated room for some airing out. This has provided extra storage, via a couple large baskets. I may consider buying one for our daughter and son-in-law.
