If you're holding off on ordering this bed because of the reviews that say the footboard was missing holes for screws, they got ahead of theirselves instead of reading instructions, you will receive 1 foot board with holes in it, 1 headboard with no holes. BUT then you slip extender legs on headboard and legs have the holes needed for screws. I'm in my 50's, set up was easy..again, do read the directions, set up is different than other frames I have worked with before, not hard, just different. The color of the bed is brown, this would go well with dark walnut dressers/nightstands. Also, sturdy. I also have painted chess with pewter colors, it works real well with that too. The bed was worth the money spent. The shipping was great, right to your front door delivery, very well packaged. This was my first shopping experience with Overstock and after this I'm definitley a fan..by the way, bedroom is adorable.
