Putting it together was a bit of a hassle, but once complete this bench is lovely. Sturdy wood, wrought iron a great touch! Anyone who purchases this bench will not be disappointed.
The bench looks nice when assembled. Like all the other reviews though, there has to be some touch-up work done on your part. I purchased it to compliment furniture in my bedroom; it matches well.
I gave this purchase 4 stars because after much work from my husband it is as beautiful as the picture shows. However, it needed quite a bit of touch up as the wood was gouged in several places and the stain was missing in quite a few places. Fortunately, my husband is very handy. Also, the wooden pegs were missing for the sides of the back rest. Decorative, not functional, but very much missing. He had to go to the hardware store and purchase them. Not a big deal, but another aggravation. May I suggest you inspect the merchandise and repair as needed before sending to customers?
The Westlin Bench adds a nice touch to my foyer. However, I was somewhat dissapointed since there were scratches that had to be touched up. Overall, it's a nice piece.
