I purchased this item after reading most of the reviews. I was very disappointed. The purchase price was fair at best for the quality of materials and workmanship. The size is not what you would expect for adults. The wood is thin and the back of the swing is very short. I will probably use it by hanging it from a tree limb.... not where I had originally planned in my nice metal swing frame. I have had a couple of comments from friends and family--they call it "cheesy". I hope this will be helpful for others.
Just received and assembled the item... not happy, maybe worth about 10 bucks.... cheap soft wood not fit for packing material... Staples and split wood... Ive bought oranges in better assembled wood. Overstock should be ashamed of carrying this let alone for a price 10x what it is worth. Split wood, loose staples and poorly matched hardware... I expect to get a season out of this if im lucky...
I've spent literally thousands of dollars purchasing items from Overstock for our new and recently renovated home and I must say, this is the first time I find myself disappointed with an item. This porch swing is made of thin wood that is splintered, chipped and quite small overall for adults. The back is only about 14" high and the very flat seat is the same. I came online to begin the process of returning it and surprisingly find out it's "not returnable". Now I checked the site and don't see anything stating this... what's with that Overstock?!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? very poor
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? no
When I received the swing it was exactly what I expected in size. The weight of the swing was extremely light and I do not reccomend a person or persons with extra weight to buy this product, pay alittle extra and get a heavy duty one. Good for the price!

Bought this for my daughter for her new house...it arrived in 2 days! It came with all the hardware to put up...thought we were going to have to run to the hardware store again! It doesnt' appear to cheaply made and very comfortable to sit in, I would recommend a seat cushion of some sort though. Definitely happy with purchase for the cost.
I got this at a great price of around 60 bucks, but I read on the box that the frame isn't included. Bummer. Didn't realize that. I haven't opened it yet and will be keeping it regardless because it's unfinished and inexpensive so I expected some work. Hope it's sturdy.
I bought 2 of these for my patio and we love them. Well worth the money. Don't forget to use a clear coat on the finished product. My husband is at least 250 lbs and I am 130. We both sit on the same one together just fine. At first they creaked when we sat down but not anymore. Good swing
This is a really good price for a simple bench that I wanted on my porch, I'm always looking for a good deal and all the swinging benches at the hardware stores in my area were all over ***, so this was a great price and it holds us up and I love it!
This was a gift for my son-in-law. It arrived exactly on his birthday....big plus. He put it together right away and hung it himself from their lower deck. They are enjoying swinging in the evening just before bedtime with their two year old daughter.
Was very pleased at how fast this got to me. I had ordered another swing from somewhere else and was told it was going to be 3 months before I could get it...when I saw this on your site I cancelled the other and ordered this right away! it was very easy to assemble and I love looking at it out in our yard hanging from an A-frame that was already there...had a heard of elk this morning in our yard and two baby elk must like it as well becasue they were actually playing with it pushing it back and forth...pretty cute!
Yay! My 20+ year old swing fell apart & I am on limited budget so this baby saved my day! Arrived within days of placing order. No missing parts. Took less than thirty minutes for 100lb girl to put together and another 10 to hang. Simple assembly with easy to follow directions. Very lightweight, which makes it easy to handle and with the added weight of 300-400lbs of people on it means that it won't pull out of ceiling supports on porch ceiling. Customer service # provided quick, live, informative & friendly advise when I called with a question. Paperwork includes order form for cushion, but any 4' patio cushion will work. I am most pleased, especially considering the fair price of this unit.
I really like my swing. I have to admit, it looks cheap and my husband wasn't very happy with it because he thought it was pine. I told him I thought it was supposed to be birch. Anyway, I stained it and it looks beautiful - I just hope it holds up. We haven't had a chance to really sit on it and enjoy it yet because it's new. I also bought too small. It's 4' and my swing I was replacing was 5' I found out after putting it together and hanging it on the old chains! Really a bargain for the price.
Swing arrived in excellent condition. Was very easy to assemble, all parts were included. No damage or scratches, looks just like the picture. Took porch paint very well without primer.Only negative, it is very light weight. May not be deep seated enough for big or tall persons. It is constructed very well but am not sure it will hold up in the outdoor pergola. Would recommend to others, especially in a covered porch. Other similar swings seem to sell for 3x as much. Great value, came as advertised, no surprises. Surprising that this big box shipped for so cheap.
