I went for this because I wanted a solid looking bed, but the room is quite small, so didn't want an overwhelming frame. It was perfect in that it seems very stable but isn't overwhelmingly large. This is not a pricey bed frame, so was expecting there to be some issues. However, there were none. The quality of the paint and strength of the bed is excellent. Putting it together is straightforward, although is greatly improved with the help of at least two other people to hold things while you attach. I bought a cheaper and quite soft mattress from IKEA to go on it, and with the firmness of the frame, it is just perfect. It's solid, but not so heavy that a sensibly strong woman couldn't move it around a room to change placement. With the mattress purchased separately, I got a very attractive and comfortable full size bed for under $500 - really happy!!! On a separate note, my mother bought this for me and we used her credit card but it was delivered to my home and I have a different last name. We were highly impressed that the overstock.com team called my mother before processing to ensure that this was a legitimate purchase and that her card hadn't been stolen.
