We built a new deck last year and wanted some wood furniture to go on it. Since it was late in the season, there really wasn't much to choose from. I was at wal-mart doing some other shopping when I saw this set. I knew it wasn't the best made pation furniture, but it was pretty and we really just wanted something to get us through the rest of the season.
Come to find out, we really liked it. Everyone that came over to the house complimented on how pretty the set was. They did not come with the cushions and I quickly realized that I needed some kind of padding on this set. It's very uncomfortable otherwise. But once I put the cushions on, it was very comfortable.
The only problem that we've had is that it's not very heavy. We live in the country and get some pretty high winds. If I know the wind is picking up, I have to go and move the furniture off the deck. I forgot one time and ended up picking my bench out of the cornfield. But, if you can believe it, it was still in once piece. I was shocked that something so reasonably priced would withstand that. So, now it's back out on the deck this year and I have no plans to replace it in the near future.
