You people need to change the description. This is a sheet metal umbrella stand. There is no wood in the construction.
The sides are covered with press-on decals. There is no hand painted images on this at all.
I ordered this umbrella stand based on the style and price point, so I was not expecting a great masterpiece, just something functional that would look good in my entry. The stand is made entirely of metal, and is of a decent weight, and holds up fine to my cane collection, several umbrellas and two hiking staffs. The design is a big sticker or decal and not "handpainted" as described. Overstock should change the description accordingly to reflect such. Otherwise I am satisfied with this product and consider it still a good value for the low cost, compared to other umbrella stands I researched.

THIS IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL, I WOULD LIKE IT A LITTLE TALLER AS I DO HAVE GOLF UMBRELLAS
THE MATERIAL IS STRONG YET LIGHT WEIGHT
IT WAS PACKAGED WELL SO NO PROBLEMS WITH DAMAGE
NO ASSEMBLY SO IT WAS EASY TO PUT TOGETHER
While it looked like the picture, it was just plain cheap and flimsy. To add to the problems, the packaging was just as bad which is why one leg was broken (how I knew it was glued on) and there was a chip in the paint. There is no way this item would stand up to any umbrellas. It went back.
This is a really nice piece. I wanted something rather inexpensive as it was really just to keep my cats out of the corners. This is much nicer in person than shown in the picture. I may I think put some sort of dried flowers or perhaps peacock feathers in this. It's really quite nice and showy. I was very pleased.
