My husband and I were able to put this bed together in about an hour and twenty minutes, which was shorter than expected since we had been driving for 7 hours just prior to starting. The frame is not one that simply slides into a slot so it seems like it is sturdier than others. Be forewarned, there are a bunch of small parts (washers, nuts, bolts) and the instructions are contained on one side of a piece of paper. The only redeeming part of the instructions is that there is an illustration of what should be at each location (a bit small however). However, I don't believe the instructions take away from the quality of the product. If I included this detail it would receive 4 out of 5. Very nice bed for the price and as for the color, it is silver but it is lightly streaked with black. One other thing, with the slats having supports in the middle, if you are on carpet they will seem too tall. Don't worry, once you get them attached they will be fine, the weight of the bed will help them sink into the carpet (on their own they are not heavy enough to do that).
I was pretty hesitant about buying this bed because there were no reviews and I could not find anything about this brand online. The bed is more grey than silver and II actually like darker color better than the one shown in the picture. It was as easy as any bed to put together (lots of bolts, washers, and screws). The directions were easy to follow. The only thing that I am not happy with is the headboard has leg extensions and they are not flush with the headboard. It also has a lot of extra space between the bed and the headboard/footboard. it looks great in my room and it turned out better than I expected. It is a great buy for the price.
