Hubs and I have wanted porch rockers for a while, but they always either seemed too expensive, the quality was less than desired, or the style didn't fit our fancy. We did see rockers at Cracker Barrel during one road trip and always said we'd find a Cracker Barrel and purchase them. That never happened.
Last night we went to Lowe's looking for wood trim and and a grill cover. We came out with neither of those, but with two big boxes, each housing a Craftsman style porch rocker in Black.
The best part, they were $99 each, way less than we've seen and there was a floor model on display, which we happily tried out.
The rockers come in White, Natural (which has a reddish hue) and Black. There were only 3 Black rockers left and we took 2 of them.
Today I assembled both of them. It wasn't bad. The directions were detailed and the pieces all fit together. The time spent was about an hour and half for both, but I was wiping everything down, finding my tools, making sure not to ding them, etc. I probably could have shaved some time off if I wasn't dilly dalling.
There was one piece (come on you know there is always one) that was damaged beyond black magic marker repair. It is is the rocker rail. I'll have to call customer service tomorrow to see if they'll send me a new piece. In the meantime, I did a little sanding and wood filler. The quality of the rockers was worth the price in my opinion. I tested the good to go one out and it's rather comfy.
The rockers have updated the porch already. I can't wait to keep at it.
