This is a really nice bed, and very easy to assemble. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the middle section of the frame was not very east to put together correctly. Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't get the parts to go together the way it was supposed to. It will be OK, but that was the most frustrating part of the whole bed. But, the bed is beautiful, and looks great. I really like the space between the foot board and the mattress because it gives room for a comforter to fit there. It looks great and is very sturdy, I would highly recommend!
