This swing was easy to assemble and is very well-made and good-looking. The only downside we had was that the hanging ropes it came with are too long (so the swing would be way too low). In order to try to fix it, we tied knots in the ends, but that made it so it hung weirdly - with the front of the seat too low. We'll fix it by retying the knots. If it had come with a chain, it would have been easier to adjust the length.

The product certainly lived up to expectations. The Instructions are excellent--it is easy to assemble. In addition, it arrived very quickly!

This item screams quality - well built - fit & finish 9+ Easy to assemble BUT I reccommend using a good wood glue as you assemble

Great deal for the price, easy 20 minute assembly, slightly warped but it is wood so a rubber mallet covered with a towel knocked it into place easily, was missing a screw but I had one that fit. It will be off-balance due to the weight of the wood, just lash or tie a loop at the balance point on the hanging rope and you should be good to go.

Been looking for a porch swing for a long time. Saw this one, read the reviews and took a chance. It shipped in less than a week. Was perfectly matched in color. Easy to install. Love it.

The swing was easy to put together and came with all the required parts, I am taking the rope off however because it just doesn't hold the swing correctly and it's not a full installation. I bought a swing installation kit from Lowes and it has everything needed to hang the swing (appoximately $25) I'm not sure why the rope is included since it doesn't allow for a complete installation and probably costs as much as the kit I purchased. Still I like the swing and it's up and ready for many years of use.

Lovely swing. I loved the look of the rope but it is way too short for our 9 ft porch ceiling. It also doesn't come with any hardware to hang it from the ceiling. Had to buy new rope and searched all over for galvanized eye screws and locking carabiners to hang it. Had it not been on sale, I'd be more disappointed with all the extra expense because the rope and hardware wasn't that cheap or easy to find. I researched how to hang it on this old house. But the swing itself is exactly what I wanted and I still like rope better than chain. Haven't hung it yet as I'm waiting for my hardware ordered elsewhere to be delivered.....

This product arrived quickly, as I would expect from Overstock. However, the pre-drilled holes do not match up. Also, the wood is clearly a very "cheap" wood and splinters easily. I would like to return this, but the return shipping is $62, so what to do? I'm very disappointed and will not order from Overstock again.

My only complaint is that the screws used to hold the rope are about 1/2 inch too long.

The quality of the swing was as expected - well built, nicely finished, quality construction. As with most imported products, the assembly instructions were a brief one page "follow the pictures" which proved adequate for the level of assembly required. Unfortunately, the hardware package which included a handful of bolts, nuts, and washers, was missing all four "A" connecting bolts which are needed to attach the bench seat to the frame. With some persistence, I was able to find a suitable substitute at a local hardware store. This resulted in taking longer to assemble the swing, but did not prevent us from enjoying it once assembly was completed.

I absolutely love this swing...it was just as pictured, is sturdy and comfortable, and the rope hangers make it seem more nautical.

we've been looking for a swing to replace our old one for years but didn't want to pay $500. this is exactly what we were looking for at a GREAT price.

The swing is gorgeous! It was delivered quickly and very easy to assemble. I love the way it swings! I had read the reviews about the ropes, and they were right. the ropes are uneven and much thicker and whiter than they appear in the picture. We knotted the top of mine, which helped, but they are still uneven. I may try to find chain to fix it. I

The bench was easy to construct. Pretty solid. Having a cushion would make sitting on it for longer periods of time more comfortable. The nylon rope that comes with it stretches pretty easily, which makes it difficult to hang straight and even. Once two people of different weight sit on the bench, the bench starts to hang a bit crookedly.

We received the swing before we were expecting it so shipment was quick. Assembling it was so easy. The ropes are a little too long but I think we have modified those enough. Our grandkids and I love to swing together and chat so that's a plus.

your basic porch bench, very pretty addition to our modern farmhouse. easy to install even for my one-handed husband. unfortunately arrived with a big crack in the seating frame. so far hasn't broken, would not recommend putting two american-sized behinds on it simultaneously.

Love the swing. Wood is beautiful and works well outside. Had no problem with rope hanger. In fact, looks great. This was a first rate purchase. I highly recommend.

I just love my bench swing. I needed some help putting it together and hanging it, but all the parts and pieces were there. It's very strong and stable and looks great too! Another good buy at Overstock.com.

This swing is solid and beautiful, but came with several large scratches and dings. Rather than return the swing for a replacement, we'll put up with the hassle of some touch up staining. The ropes that come with the swing aren't attractive and were too short for our high-ceilinged porch, so we wound up spending another $xxxx on chains and connectors. We're happy with the end result, but put in more money and work than we had expected.

Swing was so nice I'm ordering a second one. Ended up replacing the nylon rope with chain to fit house better.
