It took me quite a while to decide whether to purchase wood or wicker or metal furniture for my balcony. I finally decided on the yellow Balau wood furniture and it has worked out very well. I have had the table since Spring and it has weathered very well. Despite the hot summer sun beating down on it and a few rain storms it looks just as good as the day it arrived.
Initially this table seemed great. Wood is quite nice and seems good quality. After having it for about a year, however, the screws won't tightened and the table continually collapses. I think we will have add screws through the legs to keep it from collapsing. Once we do this, it will no longer fold.
This little table matches the eucalyptus chairs perfectly, and we love it. It's small enough to stay out of the way between the two chairs, yet holds a couple of coffee mugs, our binoculars, and one or two other small items. And it looks really great. It was a little bit tricky to assemble, but it was well worth the effort.
We had previously purchased an International Caravan Balau wood folding dining set for our porch and liked it so well that we purchased these two tables. We like the idea that the tables fold up because when we are preparing for a hurricane, we can easily slide them into the shed or into the house. They are very attractive! Time will tell how they age with our heat, sun and salt air.
Was easy to put together and I love it. If you buy this table .. you have to buy the Rocking Chairs that match it!! I might buy another one.. I was hoping to use them on my outdoor patio.. but ? if ok to leave outside even with a roof.. as I live in Colorado and if cold temps. would be a problem.
As I will mention on my review of the rest of this line (I purchased 4 of these tables, 6 of the lounge chairs and a storage box). Because the description said the tables and chairs folded for easy storage, I assumed they would arrive pre-assembled except for the storage box; but everything had to be assembled and we had to hire someone to come over and put it all together for us or we would have been working on it for a week or more!!
We got the coffee table and 2 side round tables, color matched perfectly! Install was easy, just follow instructions. Took about 45 min to put together 3 tables. Tables are light enough to move around but still solid, I wouldn't recommend sitting on them but perfect for their specific purpose.
