It took my husband about 40 minutes to put it together- the assembly could have been a bit easier. The directions were easy to follow but he could have had it up faster if he had done it his way (assemble the back before you tighten the sides or it won't align). I spent all weekend on my porch rocking in this swing. It's sturdy and attractive and you can't beat the price. I highly recommend!
I received the swing and had read the review about rust in spots so I painted my swing with rustproof paint and 2 years later is has rusted through and can't be sandblasted it is so rusted and thin in spots. I loved the swing and it was the best seating and swinging one I ever has. The chains were enclosed in vinal and are like new.I would love to have another one but I don't have the money to replace it. I really would have loved it to last at least as long as my wooden swing I replaced did. 14 years. Lrobinson NC I buy from Overstock often and this is the only purchace that didn't last.
I had to replace the very same swing I bought just two years earlier due to a complete rust through of the seat. Although it advertised it was painted with a rust resistent paint it did not prove to be so. I immediately painted the replacment swing with rustoleum to prevent this from happening again.
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE TO FIT IN SMALL AREAS. I KNEW THE SWING WAS PRETTY BEFORE I ORDERED; BUT I WASN'T EXPECTING THE COMFORT. IT CATCHES THE EYE OF VISITORS BUT THEY ARE MOST IMPRESSED WITH THE COMFORT. THE SWING WAS EASY TO PUT TOGETHER EVEN WITH NO INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED AND LOOKS GOOD AT THE END OF MY PORCH. THE HARDWARE WAS INCLUDED TO HANG THE SWING FROM A TREE OR FROM A PORCH. THIS WAS A VERY GOOD BUY FOR ME.
I really like the appearance of the swing and is very comfortable. However, it took my husband and father quite a long time to assemble it, and they're experienced in building things and putting things together. The holes and pieces did not line up; one of the handles had to be bent before it would go together. One of the bottom straps became detached as it was assembled. Therefore, I really couldn't recommend this to somenone else.
Took about 30 minutes to put together. Sturdy construction. We've had it hanging in open weather for about a year and just a little rust in the joints. It's iron, so that's just expected. Swing looks great and we've gotten tons of compliments. Good deal for the money and was shipped promptly.
I don't know why I've waited so long to write a review on this swing, but I can honestly say the quality is superior. We bought this swing 7 1/2 years ago and it is still beautiful. It is on a covered deck so it has some protection, but it faces west and has been outside year round under the hot Oklahoma sun, the cold winters with both snow and ice and has maintained it's beauty. We applied a coat of paint last year as it had started showing some wear. I love this swing.
Exactly like it was pictured, a sturdy, attractive patio swing. Would recommend

I have had an identical one for 4 years. it has held up very well. The powder coat finish will develop some rust spots but nothing objectionable for being exposed to the weather.

When my swing first arrived, I loved it. It is very pretty and unique. I've had the swing for some time now, though, and it does not hold up to the weather at all. The color portion and the underlying base metal have separated and is peeling, leaving dangerously rough edges. It's hard to describe. It's not that the paint has peeled, it's as though there's an underlying metal and then another painted metal was bonded to that and they are rusting, separating, and peeling. I intend to try and strip the swing and see if it can somehow be painted with outdoor metal paint, but I'm not sure if it will work or not, and even if it does, it's going to be a lot of hard labor.
We haven't owned this long enough to accurately rate the quality. However, on onset, it is very pretty, easy to assemble and has fair quality. The only reason I am slightly unhappy is the lattice work at the front of the bench was 'skipped' so the basketweave does not cross over. Now, it isn't overly noticeable, but I noticed it immediately (my husband didn't) and it doesn't affect sitting on it. It is very pretty and made very solid. Install was easy, hubby and 12 y/o son did it together. We had to buy extra chain to hang on our high ceilinged porch, and they did not have black, so it doesn't match exactly, but it is solid. We bought hanging bolts and caribiners to attach the extra chain. It is comfortable to swing on without a cushion too. Glad we purchased it!

Love these swings; bought one and hung it up on the front porch and then had to have one for the other end of the same porch. Sturdy, well made, stand up to weather and support two grandparents and a couple of grandchildren with no qualms. P.S. None of us are lightweights.
