This bed was easy to put together (probably 45 minutes or so, working alone) and seems very sturdy. One part was bent slightly during shipping, but I was able to make it fit rather than leaving it in pieces all over my house and waiting for a replacement. My only reservations are (1) the "charcoal" color is pretty close to black, darker than I had expected, and (2) the paint/coating on one corner has already chipped (not due to any misuse that I'm aware of). That said, I think it's a nice-looking piece and it seems like a good value for the price.
