As others have stated, the paint job was incomplete on the sides of the stools. It didn't bother me enough to send them back, especially because I have a toddler who is likely to be damaging them anyway in the near future. They look as pictured, but are definitely not high quality.
I only bought one of these, because I have had problems in the past with wooden chairs/stools being damaged in shipment, and not being as sturdy as I had hoped. This is everything I had hoped for. The color is just as it is shown, a very warm cherry color, and it is very sturdy. It is so perfect for my kitchen pass-through countertop that I'm going to order another one. A great purchase.
After many years of not wanting to spend too much on stools for our peninsula in the kitchen, I found these. They are sturdy and have a simple look, which makes them very unobtrusive. I bought the black, which happens to match my pub style dining room table. I wish I could find a comfortable topper for them as they are hard, but still comfortable. Also, I can see that they foot bar will wear as the paint is already wearing away. I know this really can't be helped, and they have a rustic look, so it will be fine. I thought they were a good value.
Item came with one mark on each stool - looks like a minor abrasion on both. Used off white furniture repair paint pen and the blemish disappeared. Sturdy and well made. Off white color is exactly what I was looking for. Nice stools! Comfortable!
Needed extra seating for the dining table on occasion. Thought these would make good side tables when not being used as seats. They are just what I needed!
