This bed is really good looking and was at a good price. We've put together a TON of Overstock furniture and this one had less clear directions than most. My husband had to take it apart once and redo it once to make sense of it. A few weeks later, the middle supports got knocked off (scary!). We used bigger screws and reinforced with nails to make it feel sturdy. Now it seems ok, but I wish it hadn't been such a pain. Also we have box springs and a thick pillowtop mattress on it, and the bed is pretty darn high; the headboard doesn't show much. I'd take the box springs off but I want the lateral support of their frames so the middle doesn't sink. Nonetheless, this bed has a very nice style, was affordable, and if we'd done the reinforcement thing in the beginning then it would have been fine. Goes perfectly in our room. Despite the problems, I'd probably get it again.
