This is a beautiful and well made bed. I had it put together in a little over 45 minutes by myself. The only problem I encountered was the "cross bar" that is intended to give the slats support. The mounting bolts that attach with an allen wrench (enclosed) do not screw in to the wooden slats, they screw into the "cross bar" into metal screw sockets, but do not firmly attach to the slats. After it fell over 4 times from my laying on the bed, I slid it out from in under the bed. There doesn't seem to be any reason why the bed won't be fine without it, the slats are secure and strong. Other than that, I can't say anything except praise for this bed! Well worth the money and everything is packaged well.
