Frame is more brown that black, which is what I wanted. It has a matte finish which doesn't show fingerprints so it is great for a guest room. Took about an hour for 2 people to unpack and assemble. If assembled correctly it is very sturdy and does not squeak. Has support legs that go under the center point of each cross brace. Also has heavy rubber washers that go between the side rails and the headboard/footboard to prevent squeaking. Great frame for a great price. Very happy with it.
