I am SO glad I purchased this bed. I've been looking for a long time and had my hopes set on a ***** bed but couldn't stomach the high price. I thought long and hard about the Tribeca Queen Size Bed on Overstock, but the assembly review comments made it sound like a total nightmare. I settled on this bed based on the rating and reviews - I am SOOOO happy I did! The bed arrived about 1 1/2 weeks after I ordered it. The boxes were pretty beat up - so I opened all packages to inspect before the delivery man left. There was a large scratch on the headboard but it was on the back, so I kept it. Definitely check it once it arrives - it is worth the extra 5 minutes. The color was darker than the picture (which I actually was hoping for based on other comments). The actual bed is solid, heavy wood of equal quality in comparison to the Pottery Barn beds I considered. It took my boyfriend and me about 42 minutes from start to finish - we timed it. VERY EASY. The only confusing part were the legs that attach to the middle of the bed slats, but I finally figured out that I needed to unscrew the bottom part all the way so that the legs would touch the ground (if you get this bed you will understand what I'm talking about). This would be easy to take apart, move and put back together. It looks terrific and has a nice darker mahogany color. It matches the color of my ***** mahogany "Map" side tables perfectly. Visit that site if you want to check out the actual color of the bed. A definite thumbs up.
