This bed is great. I had read the reviews before I bought it and went with the queen size instead of the full because of one of the reviews. I'm glad I did. It's beautiful and very sturdy. I put it together by myself (intelligent enough but no engineer!) in about an hour. All parts were present and accounted for. And there were no bad places on the paint, scratches, etc. It's perfect. And I love the color. The delivery was a big plus for me, also. Living in a very small town but having it delivered to my door (for $1 shipping) was so convenient. My shabby chic quilt and shams (also from Overstock) look great on it.
