The bed is not heavy so it does not feel sturdy. The ends of the bed are plastic balls, and the frame came with scuffs on it. I don't want to pay to have it returned and already paid for a professional to assemble the bed otherwise I would return this item.
We received the canopy bed so quickly and received free shipping! Putting it together was fairly easy, other than the fact that they have you put it together on its side... Well, our ceilings were not high enough to turn it over in the correct position once we were done putting it together!! We had to remove a few pieces and put it together again once we had it upright. We are currently going for a mid-century modern look and the grey backing on this has a little bit of white in it, so it gives it an older feel. Looks beautiful and goes so well with the rest of our house!
