I love the look of this bed..im using this bed as a guest bed in a very small extra room and it is perfect. It was pretty easy to put together but is much easier with 2 people. It came shipped in two very big very heavy boxes so an extra person was a must with lifting the boxes. The wood that is used to support the mattress is a little flimsy and the paint seems to chip very easily. Over all for the price this bed is great.
