originally fell in love with this bed on *****. it is nearly identical, only wood, and with no footboard... and two to three times as expensive. i spray painted mine white, to give it a bit more modern feel, and because my bedroom is very small and didn't want a huge, dark bed taking up space. (it took 9 cans of spray paint to cover only headboard, footboard, and side rails!) was easy to move into my bedroom after delivery, as well as assemble (i'm a single girl, no roommates). took approximately 1.5 hours to move into my room, assemble, and slide mattress set on top. though i did accidentally throw away a couple pieces, that are not necessary to construction, however it squeaks a tiny bit when i jerk around the bed, and i bet this would not be the case if i hadn't thrown away those couple very small pieces ! i have mattress set (box springs and mattress) and a 3" memory foam on top. after all that, the euro pillow shams i have cover all the headboard but the very top bar. for the time being, i leave my comforter draped over the footboard (feel as though it keeps room looking bit more open). love the lines, love the modern, nearly art deco feel, and excellent price!
