I love my new canopy bed! After ordering it I read more reviews (I know, stupid right?) and some customers said that it wasn't very sturdy once it was put together. I beg to differ! I made extra sure that I screwed all the screws as tight as they would go, and it barely wiggles at all, even during ... well, you know ;P My only recommendation to someone who gets this bed is to secure the headboard end of the bed to the wall. I used these little semi-circular brackets that I got at the hardware store. I painted them black and placed them in an inconspicuous location. I can't even see them now, but it keeps the headboard from tapping against the wall. I put it together all by myself in less than an hour. It was very easy. All the parts were there and the instructions were very clear. No power tools required! I am extremely pleased with it and can't wait to get canopies up. Way to go overstock!
