I ordered this on on a Saturday, and it arrived at my door the following Friday. I decided to try to assemble it myself to impress the men in my life that I could do it. I succeeded. The directions were clear and concise. There were a couple of steps I didn't read carefully, so I had to go back and redo. For example, it makes a difference which side the the legs are on, and you are only supposed to put one of the tracking guides on until the very end when you put the second one on. Don't try speed reading.
One more thing about the directions. The very last step refers to using screws but pictures bolts. I went with the bolts because the first tracking guide called for bolts and I figured the last one would be the same.
The directions recommended putting a bit of petroleum jelly on the tracking guide for ease in sliding it. I haven't done that yet.
The finished stool was just what you see in the picture here. I expected the seat and back to be metal (or plastic, as most things are today), but it is padded vinyl.
My two-year-old grandson loves it because he can use the steps to climb up and sit down. (Oh, dear, I hope that's not a safety hazard as just about everything is these days.)
The stool takes me back to the 50s, and there is the added bonus that I assembled it myself. It's perfect and fun.
