I've been using the bed very over a month now and am very happy with it. I was able to assemble it by myself in less then an hour. Very easy assembly and the instructions were clear. I was worried about getting all the boxes upstairs by myself. But I opened up the big box and removed the individual pieces. The pieces themselves are lighweight and easy for one person to carry. The bed looks beautiful and feels very sturdy. I think it will last a very long time. And should be easy to diassemble and move if I need to.
