First, I would recommend having two people to receive the boxes. It ships in two pieces - one large rectangle of about 55 lbs and one long box of about 100 lbs. It's not fun trying to lug them up stairs on your own. Also, the packaging itself was awful. The cardboard was all torn up and offered little protection for the frame itself. The hardware package had burst and it was all floating around inside the box - I am truly shocked it wasn't scuffed up or had missing hardware. The construction itself was relatively straightforward - I did it myself from box to fully made bed in about an hour and a half. I would highly recommend the use of a power screwdriver for the slats, though. As for the bed itself, it's gorgeous - but be very, very careful when constructing and putting the mattress in to not scuff it. It scuffs easily and once it's there it's never coming off. Also, it's a few inches too big for my queen-size mattress set and you can see an inch or three of slats on both sides. I'm still not sure how I'm going to cover that up. Also, I have a very deep mattress and boxspring set and with only the mattress it seemed a little too low, and with the boxspring it's a little too high.Ultimately, though, I'm pleased with the purchase - especially for the price. Everyone says it looks like it's from a high-end hotel!
