This bed is beautiful! It is easy to assemble. Also it is very sturdy. In one of the pictures on the website it looked much lighter than "cherry" finish. I was a little hesitant because I wanted the true cherry look. I ordered it anyway and hoped for the best. I was so happy when I opened this nicely packaged product and saw CHERRY!! So that picture in the site can be misleading. Also note that there is no wood on this bed. It is all metal. I definitely love this bed. It is great in our guest room..although my husband and I tried it out before putting our family on it. It's a great bed at a great price!
