After looking at dozens of beds, I chose this one for the style and price, including delivery cost. Every other store - online and local - wanted to charge an arm and a leg, but Overstock charged only its usual $2.95, and the bed arrived very quickly. I was easily able to put the bed together myself in about an hour, but I'd recommend two people to assemble it because of one minor issue: The connectors on the side pieces of the footboard didn't quite line up, and I had to use a lot of muscle to force the connectors together. Otherwise, I had no problems. The bed is very good looking - solid, heavy (but not too heavy), and unusual. I looked at dozens of beds and this was the only metal sleigh bed I could find. It also feels very sturdy while using it - no shifting or squeaking you so often get with metal/brass beds. Be aware that, because of the curved headboard and footboard, the bed is quite long. I put it in a 10x13 room and had to rearrange the other furniture because of the bed's length. It looks great, though, so definitely worth shuffling the other furniture around.
