I bought this platform bed for a small room. I'm pleased with it so far. It had one scratch on a headrail. If I face it towards the wall, it isn't noticible.For myself, it was easy to assemble with powerdrill/screw driver. I had to have help holding a couple of pieces.I knew this bed would sit low to the ground when I bought it and that suits me fine. We'll see how it holds up to the test of time. This bed definitely serves its purpose for me at the present time.Shipping was extremely fast. It arrived in two seperate boxes within 3 business days. Still waiting for my memory foam mattress, however. I will not be using a boxspring.
