The actual frame (headboard, side rails, footboard) went together fine and look great but when I went to assemble the center supports, I ran into some trouble. First, most of the holes didn't match up. Then as I was trying to figure out what went where (the directions were... vague), I realized I was short on screws. I counted what the inventory said I should have and what I actually had and rechecked all of the boxes. *HALF* of the screws were missing. I was able to go to the local hardware store with the screws I had and buy ones needed to complete the assembly, but if you don't have time to do this (and you don't have a power drill or a really strong arm) I wouldn't suggest this bed.
