This was a much needed replacement for an Ikea bed that was on its last legs, literally... As many reviewers have mentioned, this is a solid bed. It came in 3 boxes that were well insulated and packaged. Instructions were straightforward, and if you ever assembled furniture at home, then the process of putting this bed together would not be a challenge. The process worked well until I got to the point of screwing in the slats that support the mattress. The 2 pillars of the bed frame were unmarked, which forced me to measure the thickness of each plank as well as count them so they can be spaced properly. This is the primary reason why I give the review 4 stars. Since only the slats and not the beams are predrilled, your basic screwdriver is not good enough, and I strongly urge use of a power one. Overall the bed is solid, doesn't make noise or wobble once assembled. You can easily spend twice this price on a bed of similar quality.
