As other reviews mentioned, the swing was difficult to assemble. You need some serious muscle to align the holes, but it worked out. There was a dime sized dent on the top of the back arch which is very noticable and it doesn't seem that it will hold up very well outdoors. But on the flip side, it is sturdy, looks great and who can beat the price. We are happy with it and it has become my favorite spot for moring coffee. I'd definitiely recommend it. Just know what you are buying.
