I actually bought this bed frame twice! I had to make 2 painful cross country moves for job reasons but was captivated by the majestic appearance of this bed. PRO: This bed is ideal for a large spacious home or sprawling ranch in Texas. It's a beautiful imposing piece of furniture, very solidly built with a rich mahogany finish. Assembly is pretty simple for one person - takes 15 min with 2 people - 10 with movers. May require some screw tightening once a year to prevent squeaking. CON: I grew up always wanting a sleigh bed but sadly they aren't "fashionable" anymore. The one structural flaw are the legs supporting the center beam. The bolts/screws quickly get worn and fall off...repeatedly. Fortunately, their absence is of little consequence. You will need a low profile boxspring or mattress to shrink the bed's profile. This bed is not appropriate for a studio or small bedroom.
There are SO easy to put together -- you just attach the legs. I think it's just 6 screws total. I was expecting to have to build it practically from scratch. So that was the first nice surprise and the second is that these tables are of great quality! I was not expecting that, either. The finish is applied very evenly and the drawers open smoothly (and have tons of storage). I ended up getting the mahogany color, which initially I was unsure of because I have a black dresser and didn't know if they would match. At first, I was going to get the "midnight" (blackish) tables, but since they are evidently not a true black but somewhere between black and gray, I decided to go with the mahogany and am glad I did. They have enough darker undertones in the finish to complement my black dresser. As far as the hardware on the mahogany tables, if anyone is confused as to the color, it is a dark bronze. Some of the pictures of the mahogany tables looked to me like they might have silver hardware but it is definitely more of a bronze.
