I received this item just a few days after I ordered it. It looks great - just like the pictured. When the box arrived, I was afraid that I would not be able to assemble it. However, I was able to assemble and install it (by myself) in less than 30 minutes. Like another review, my only concern was the height of the swing. Because of the length of the chain, my swing is currently about 3 feet above the floor and the porch and I am unable to use it until I get an additional chain.
