I was reluctant to buy this bed because my husband wasn't thrilled with the idea and the picture made it look "dainty." When it arrived we were pleased to see that the frame was much sturdier than it looked in the picture. He putit together easily and it looks great in our bedroom. If there is a negative, I would like it to be a little higher off the floor so I could use the underneath for storage. But we are extremely pleased with this bed frame, especially for the money!
