I bought this to put into my guest room. It was fairly easy to put together. The best thing to do is lay out the bolts, washers and nuts in correct order and it will be easier. There were a lot of extra parts and a couple of metal plates that the directions did not say how to use and one part of the instructions that were not clear as to the purpose (maybe attach the frame to a wall or something else?). I think the whole unit looks great in the room as it is not too big, it's a nice design and appears to be very sturdy so far.
