I am fortunate to be dating a guy who is skilled in carpentry. Together he and my brother and I got it put together in about two hours. I hate to think how long it would have taken without him. He brought a hammer and a power drill that made all the difference in the world since there are about 47,836 screws. In conclusion, for assembly you will need the following: 1. A carpenter. 2. A hammer. 3. A power drill. 4. At least two hours. I wish you the best of luck.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Slightly darker. I was expecting that because one of the other reviews mentioned it. The real color is prettier than the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am pleased with the overall quality of the bed. One of the pieces was slightly broken but we were able to use it anyway. I suppose we could have returned it but I didn't want the bother.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate. The reviews are even more accurate. I always read as many reviews as I can before I buy anything online.
