We just got the glider home last weekend, and since it was those rare days in Seattle when the sun was out, we assembled it the moment we got home after picking it up at the store. pickup was a breeze at the store, and the item arrived well-packed and in good shape. The colors were as in the item listing, Assembly took about 40 min for the both of us. If you have assembled IKEA furniture, assembling this one is a breeze. However, don't expect IKEA-standard instructions- instructions are a bit confusing. The item is more bulky than heavy, so having another person around definitely makes assembling faster. Take care to put a fat cushion in between the open edges of the seat when you are assembling it- the seat closed shut full force on my fingers while we were trying to get the bolts on the bottom part and it hurt quite a bit! The glider glides well (one of the bars was bent and we noticed only after assembling, so ours limps a bit), and is comfortable to sit it. If you are short (I am 5'3''), you will ned a small footstool to feel comfortable when sitting for extended periods of time. Taking the other reviewer's advice, we got a loveseat cover for the glider, as Seattle and rain go hand in hand. So far, so good- we're having a great time on our cozy patio. Will log back in if there are any worthwhile developments in the future- but for the price, it is a great deal and I definitely recommend it!
