The butterfly stools....a little chipped off for the light colour stool, but not really noticable...downside...spent quite a while figuring how to install the connecting bar...still not really tighten yet as the outer screw is like a flat cover, no screw lines..but the inner screw is a "X" screw...so no matter how hard I tried to tightedn the "X" screw, the outer screw turn with it....must find something to hold it....

The taobao dinning tables and chairs....haha

The table is really solid....very heavy and I was installing it myself and lifting it up to put it in place...installation is easy as just need to secure the legs (alien key) to the top....

The chairs is another story..looks easy but I spent a long time before figuring out how to do it...once the first chair was done, the rest was easy until the last chair, which is the black chair....after putting all together, the chair wobble....so ended up dismantle it again and try to figure out why...at the end, i did not connect 1 of the cross bar as it caused one of the leg to misalighed..so i left it out and still the chair is stable...hahah...doesnt matter lar..no one will notice...just ensure that no heavy weight (like my maid) sit on that piece....
