Upside, the bed came in just 2-3 weeks, nicely packed. Once put together it looks great. Downside, for me, this bed was torture to put together. The instructions were ridiculously bad. The feet were not pre-drilled for the attachment plates and then difficult to figure out which way the plates went on. The wood screws are too short and I had to buy longer ones. It came with 2 sets of washers/bolts. The second set was smaller and it was drilled out for the larger so yet another purchase. The wood is VERY soft and when I predrilled the pilot hole for the slats, the wood split on the side rail support, ARGHH. Again, once together it's beautiful. Bad instructions, wrong hardware and soft wood split made for a difficult assembly.
