I love this beautiful bed. I am a woman "of a certain age" and I assembled it all by myself! It took me over an hour but only because I am meticulous and take my time. I love this bed - it is even a richer color than I thought it would be. So elegant! I am super pleased!!! Also, it arrived much sooner than I anticipated and there was not one blemish on it - AND - all the pieces were there!! Thank you!
