This is a wonderful addition to our renovated master suite! Once all of the pieces arrived that is. The bed was ordered over a month ago and we have finally slept on it for the first time last night. The original boxes came 9 days after the order was placed. The headboard was a mess and there were missing tracks for the drawers, as well as the screws. The next headboard and tracks arrived 10 days later, however the all important screws were missing. Finally, 11 days later the final package arrived. I can't tell you how long it took to put together, since it was done in stages, but according to my husband, it had easy to follow directions. Now that it is together, we love it. The mattress we purchased fits perfectly and the drawers are sturdy and large. The color is nice and even. We are very pleased with this purchase!
