Let me start by saying that this bed is in our guest room. And we love this bed, it looks nice, the quality of the wood is great, the color is beautiful, BUT so many of our guests that use our guest room have hit themselves walking by it. (Even drawing blood) The corners at the foot of the bed stick out a lot and are sharp corners. We joke about putting baby edge guards there. Maybe we just have clumsy friends? If I could do over, I would get a bed without anything at the foot of the bed. It does look great in the guest room with the bedspread on it.
