Acacia is a wood that stands up to weather quite well naturally, and this garden bench has been treated with oil to help preserve the color of the stained wood, but you'll want to use it in a covered patio or porch (not out in full force of the sun and rain) to keep it looking its best.

The inside measurements of the storage area are 15" x 15" x 20" on this popular wicker-look patio storage bench.
