The futon was relatively easy to put together even though we were missing some bolts. Once it was finished, the back of the futon was a lot higher than the part that you sit on. I"m not sure if this is because it's a queen or what but it looks awkward. To be fair, I still need to call the company to see if this is normal and if I put it together right. From what I've noticed though, it's put together fine. Otherwise the mattress and frame is good quality for a decent price.
