This is a good-looking well made bed, but the distressed finish is much more dramatic than in the picture. That said it's a beautiful bed and extremely well made. It's a very solid bed. The headboard and footboard are made of hardwood (acacia) and connected with side rails with built-in hardware (typical slots), making assemble a snap for me to do by myself. There is a center support that fits into pre-cut grooves for a solid connection without hardware. The slats that support the bed are solid 3x3 beams that fit into spaces on the side boards. I was impressed with the construction and just how solid the bed is. As I mentioned, this is a good-looking bed. I was expecting more of a reclaimed wood look with a natural distressing. The distressing on the bed I received is much more obvious than the bed in the photo, and the distressing marks tend to go across multiple planks making it look more faux than natural. The lime wash is also much more prevalent and dramatic than in the photo. The color of the wood is natural with a very slight pinkish hue, and I wouldn't really call it brown. All in all, we are very happy with the bed and the value. It looks like something you would see in a high end furniture store and looks beautiful in our bedroom. Buying a wood finish on-line is always a gamble--this time it worked out. It also came in 2 weeks which was a pleasant surprise.
