My husband bought this wonderful glider for our new deck. We love to sit outside in the evenings and relax. This is a double seated glider with cut out hearts. We have never painted the wood but we have treated it with a sealer. After many years of use it still looks brand new.
We had to do some adjustments on the glider, at the bottom, where it was rubbing too close to the other pieces of wood. A few shavings of the wood and we were good to go. The only other thing we have had problems with is that the bees love it as much as we do! We had some yellow jackets making holes in the bottom of the base. Hopefully they have found another home this year. We filled in the holes with putty and sanded it down so it is hardly noticeable.
One thing I wish this glider had is a cup holder. My husband said he could cut a hole in the table or on the arm rest and make that wish come true! It's hard to sit anything on the table while you are swinging in the glider. It simply doesn't work unless you are sitting still.
I have great memories of swinging with my granddaughter in my arms when she was just month's old. Now that she is a big girl (4) she sits in the other seat while we swing. I look forward to sharing this special glider with my grandson and my future grandchildren. It's a comfortable place to relax and share some great conversations.
