It looks great, it was very easy to put together. It was just a pain to stain it. I love it, my porch needed a swing. My husband, my self and our daughter have all been on it at the same time--and I am ashamed to say together we are over the weight limit and had no problem! The price was great!

My husband and I are not big people and we feel we need to sit gently on the swing - and 2 people is the max. I do not trust the weight limit as if you lean against the back too hard you can feel it flex. The chains that came with the swing caused the swing to sit too flat - simple fix though, just clipped off 2 links on each front chain. Really easy to assemble. For the price, it is a perfect light use porch swing for regluar sized folks

For the price this is great! It can chip or get broken pretty easily but again it is 1/4th the price of others... For the price I am loving it! IF we use it a ton Im sure we will have to replace it within two years... For the price it is what is expected and a really good value

GOT MY MONEY'S WORTH...IN COMPARING PRICES FOR MOST SWINGS OF THIS SIZE I DID NOT EXPECT SUPERIOR STRENGTH OR QUALITY BUT WITH A FEW EXTRA REINFORCEMENT AND SCREWS IT WILL SERVE IT'S PURPOSE...
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? OK
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. NEEDED A LITTLE REINFORCING TO FEEL SECURE WITH IT'S SAFETY

cheap cheap wood, could not even trust it to hold our weight and we are average sized people my husband and I, not overweight. the wood is flimsy and we never trusted it so we never used it. would spend more for something of good quality next time.
My husband added a 1"/2 1/2 " oak slat longitudinally for reinforced strength on the front and back of the seat section. Coat all surfaces with a good stain preservative twice a year and the rig will last for 50 years (roughly). It's the right size for 2 grandparents or 3 grandchildren.
This porch swing looks great on my front porch. It gets very light use, mainly by adults who exceed 150 lbs each It is the last seat taken since our other porch furniture looks more comfortable. I don't think it could withstand regular, heavy use. But it is a cute decorative piece that is reasonably comfortable for one or two adults when we serve food or cocktails on the porch and need it. And, children love to swing in it. I had trouble finding a cushion that fit nicely and ended up a king my own, which was less expensive but could be a problem for those who are not crafty. I also painted this swing and it looked good. I didn't even prime it first.
There should have been a warning on how small it is. I'm 5'2" and 118lbs, an though I can sit on it, it isn't comfortable. It has to be sanded and finished. Some of the boards are split. There are errors..one arm fits differently than the other. I am very disappointed but sending it back just seems too overwhelming.
Swing is much flimsier than I expected. It looks cheap and is not comfortable to sit on without cushions. I will need to paint it to give it a more finished look. Knew it was natural in color, but didn't expect it to look like plywood when I ordered it.
