We loved the bench. My husband put it together in no time at all. It looks great and is very sturdy. It is a lovely bench. The roses are nice and match the iron work on my terrace. The color is just alittle green and alot of black . I read one other reviews about the color not being right but ours looks hand done and it great. If it is,hand done, as I think , then every one would be a little different which is appealing to me. Great little bench, big enough for two grownups.
