I liked the bed, and the two men (sons) who assembled it seemed to do it in about 1/2 an hour in good temper. One thing- it arrived with one of the end pieces broken, and we ended up just gluing it together. It looks fine now. That's the issue, always, with internet ordering. You have to balance the annoyance of returning something against just fixing it. And I'm satisfied that this was just one of those things. So, 2 stars down for the break, otherwise it would be 5 stars.
