We bought this bed frame for our new memory foam mattress. It came in 3 boxes in a fairly short time by freight. The finish on the wood could be better. On some of the spindles on the headboard they didn't get the dark finish all the way to the bottom of the wood which shows where the spindles connect to the horizontal pieces. It went together fairly easy and the wood itself is very beautiful. We've gotten several compliments on it. Not bad for the price.
