I received the swing and had read the review about rust in spots so I painted my swing with rustproof paint and 2 years later is has rusted through and can't be sandblasted it is so rusted and thin in spots. I loved the swing and it was the best seating and swinging one I ever has. The chains were enclosed in vinal and are like new.I would love to have another one but I don't have the money to replace it. I really would have loved it to last at least as long as my wooden swing I replaced did. 14 years. Lrobinson NC I buy from Overstock often and this is the only purchace that didn't last.
