OMG this was a great buy. It came lightning fast (only a few business days), and looked beautiful once assembled. The quality is great, and the pictures are spot-on. Here's the trick for easy assembly: After you have the frame all together (it's only 4 screws!), and you are about to tackle setting up the slats, be sure and put together the WHOLE horizontal row, then snap it onto place, starting in the middle. If you snap in the middle double plastic cap first, you'll struggle trying to get the ends in properly. Once I figured this out (the instructions weren't super-clear), it was a breeze. It takes a little muscle to pop in the plastic caps that hold the slats in place, but if you use the heel of your hand and try and do one click at a time, it's a lot easier. The hardware (2 allen wrenches, and 4 screws/bolts) is tucked in with the wooden feet, which came preassembled with the washers already in place. I almost tossed it in the trash, since it is such a small hardware kit. The bed is pretty low, since it's just a mattress on the slats, so I might put a box spring back in, once I have someone to help lift it with me. My first houseguest to try it out will be here in a week, so I'll update the review after a trial run. This is a beautiful bed in my guest room, and had I known how pretty it was, I probably would have ordered it for my master suite. Don't hesitate to buy this bed, you won't regret it.
