Overall we're happy with this bed, and really like the look in our room. It took about 3 weeks to be delivered, as it seems the freight company only delivers to certain areas on certain dates. But shipping was free, so I can't complain! Since we're using this with a memory foam mattress and no box spring, I needed to add plywood over the four slats to support it, and make it into a platform bed so to speak. I bought two 4'x8' sheets of 5/8" cabinet grade plywood at a local hardware store for about $60 and cut them to fit. I also added two "legs" to the center of the slat up by the headboard, as the bed only came with 2 legs for each of the lower three slats. I felt the slat by your head should be supported too, so I just cut two pieces of scrap partical board to 7" long and screwed them into the top slat. Assembly took about 3 hours, including time to cut the plywood to size. Having my wife hold up parts helped during assembly, but I could have done it myself (except lifting the mattress up). I didn't see any directions at first, but eventually found them wrapped up in the plastic around the headboard piece. It's pretty sturdy, but the material does seem to scratch easily. Also, making the bed is a little difficult getting the fitted sheet around the mattress at the top since the headboard sides block the corners. But it looks nice!.
