This arbour was purchased to fill a blank space that had been the home of a small summerhouse.It took a while to arrive but when it did we were delighted with it .My husband found it easy and straightforward to assemble and it now ideally fills the space it was intended for .It looks stylish and attractive and we are very pleased with the addition to the garden .
Assembly instructions not the best
The instructions were basically a nice diagram of the finished seat and each individual part prior to assembly. No measurements, marks or pre drilled holes. Even though you could tell where the parts should go we had to measure check and line up before drilling. Some general marks would have been very helpful. We are a DIY family and I think someone who didn't do that would struggle putting this item together. Definitely a two person job as heavy and one needs to hold and steady while the other drills and screws.It took myself and my teenager about 1 hour to assemble.
just put it together,looks fab,i do agree with first reviewer though,pre drilled holes would help with assembly.however,great value for the price.
The arbour is fine ... once you manage to get it assembled. It is much more difficult than you are led to believe. At least a few pre-drilled holes would have helped, as would a much better set of instructions.
