I expected to have to do some assembly for a rocking chair at this price point, but I didn't know I needed to be a woodworker to put these together! I ordered two chairs, and it took me and my boyfriend over 3 hours to put them together. After the allen wrench provided in the box was stripped (which was after about 5 minutes of trying to manually drill the screws into the wood), we had to go to the hardware store and buy a power drill. Even then, we considered buying new screws and just drilling those into the wood since the ones provided only worked with the allen wrench, but we thought it would be easier once we drilled the holes wider, so we decided to use the screws provided. Big mistake! Even after drilling the holes to the proper width, it was a nightmare getting the screws in, and we had to use pliers and wrenches to turn them, which caused some of the paint around the screws to scrape off. The finished chairs look great, but be prepared for tired hands and several hours of hard labor if you buy these!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good match. Slightly more glossy white than it looks online.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poorly constructed. Holes drilled for screws were virtually nonexistent, and you were expected to drill screws into the wood with a handheld allen wrench that was stripped after a couple screws.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, but no details about how it would arrive.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? No
