This thing is horrible. I cannot believe Overstock sells this piece of junk. I put it together this weekend and not only is it warped, but the pieces do not fit together properly. We bought this for a stage prop for the theater...so we had to shore it up with screws and braces. It is completely flimsy and will rot if you use it as a planter. Overstock should give us our money back or a portion, thereof....especially since we are a nonprofit community theater group. Shame on them for selling something SO junky.
