The bed is attractive and solidly constructed. The shipping experience was unpleasant. The bed came in two boxes, one with the headboard and slats, the other with the rails. Both boxes arrived very damaged. Upon opening with the delivery man, we found that the slats were broken and splintered from being struck by something during shipping (there were several gaping, torn holes in both boxes). So he took the damaged slats away and overstock reordered the slats for me. Very frustrating, having to wait for redelivery of the slats before I could put my new bed together and sleep on it.
