My white metal counter stools arrived quickly, within a week, and were well packaged arriving undamaged. They are well painted on all sides including undersides and the color is a very pleasing soft white similar to porcelain china. These stools are very solid, no flex or bend and you can use the foot rest with no fear of breaking or bending. They come with adjustable non-skid feet that do not mark my wood floors. Remember these are easy to move with the handy handle hole and also stack within a small footprint. I ordered two for my kitchen island but am ordering more today.
