I will try to be faster about this review... overstock timed me out after I entered the last one. Two of the pieces that fit together did not because one side had been smashed a little. I had to get a hammer out to open the hole up a bit to get them together. A little bit of chipped paint and a ruined shirt later, they were together (and will likely be that way forever). Once it was all together my son and I were very pleased with it. It looks nice, it is sturdy and is a great alternative to buying a box spring and frame when you have an extra mattress. This was one of the more difficult things I've put together. Had to get help from my husband. But it was worth it.
