Our arch is stained wood and while lovely plain, it can be made super beautiful too with drapery, florals or even to hang our macrame arch.
The arch comes in three parts so it is easy to transport. It can usually fit into a standard people mover or stationwagon. On site, the top and sides need to be bolted on. With one person holding it while another does the bolts by hand and tightens with a wrench (provided) if needs be, it should take no more than 10 minutes to put up and take down.
