If you buy a picnic bench from Homebase...

... be prepared for two things:

1) It will take about two hours to assemble AND

2) IGNORE the "L" (for left) and "R" (for right) stickers on the cross bars... otherwise it'll take three hours to assemble!

Not sure if I was just really unlucky to get the dud or if this is a problem throughout, but the TWO cross beams supporting the ends need to be swapped over (one is correct but ignore the other sticker).

This is either the best information you have ever had (if you have just bought one of these and have not assembled yet) OR the worst, most boring post EVER on HUKD.

On the plus side, I saved over £40 this weekend on Homebase deals + the 10% they had yesterday AND the 10% card they gave us. And a lovely, if hard as flip to put up, picnic table in the back garden

Just because I adore Louie, doesn't mean for one second that I think you are human.

OK, total guess here but:

1) Overweight

2) LOVES Jeremy Kyle

3) Adores Jordan

4) Wonders how things went SO wrong?

I am correct?

I bought 1 of these but there was no picnic inside the box, i returned it twice and 3 times in total my box was missing the picnic.


Either a faulty batch or homebase staff had eaten the picnic :x
