There is not one negative thing I can say about this purchase, other than shipping seemed slow but I think that was because of it being Thanksgiving week; it actually arrived the estimated arrival date. The bed was packaged very well, all pieces were there. It took my husband and me 40 minutes from start to finish to assemble the bed and that included putting on the box spring, mattress and making the bed. The instructions were pictures only and took a little studying before we began. On both the headboard and footboard one part of the bed did not line up exactly with the bedpost, but my husband slightly bent the headboard piece with his hands to get it to fit, and on the footboard part, he took a hammer with a piece of cardboard between the hammer and bed to knock it into alignment without damaging the finish. I noticed a lot of reviewers also had this problem, but ours was certainly nothing that couldn't be easily fixed. So if that happens with yours, don't despair because it's an easy fix. The bed is beautiful, well made, and I expect will last us a long time.
