When I received this item, I was really looking forward to having a basic, yet decent-colored gazebo in our back yard. I saw right off the bat that it probably wasn't going to work, but put it up anyway -- and then took it right down and gave it to the person who helped me set it up. I just didn't want to have to deal with the return of such a large item. The description of "Terra Cotta" couldn't have been more off. This is the color of those orange, construction cones you see. And it is edged with bright white. Nothing like an earthy color at all. This isn't Overstock.com's fault -- it is the fault of the color-blind manufacturer. This would be good if you are having a sporting event or picnic among hundreds or thousands of other people, and you want your family to find your gazebo -- it almost literally glowed.

Packaging for this product is definitely sub par. The product was damaged on one corner of the box was smashed. Luckily it was only a couple of dents that I worked out and a couple plastic pieces were broken and I glued them back together. Typical overstock item. If they spend 5 more dollars in packaging they would have way less issues. Once it fixed the minor issues the canopy, it came out rather nice and sturdy. I am happy with the product overall.

So 1st of all have some room to put it together and 2 of you are way better than assembling this thing solo, trust me. Fits well on our upper deck...We live in No. Virginia in Sterling and get a lot of wind...this canopy has already shown its reliability in surviving heavy winds and rain...I have it secured to the sides of the deck and it came through like a champ...do not expect "waterproof" because it's not...it is water resistant and did ok in the rainstorm ...one downer is apparently there are no replacement Canopus available...hoping Overstock figures that one out with the manufacturer
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Lime Green
