I feel safer sleeping on a hammock tied with dental floss under palm trees full of coconuts. I kid you not, I once I put it together I sat on it and the plastic legs broke. A rasin patio chair has more resistance than this. Now, to be fair, it is a beautiful bed. If you're into fixer-upper projects, then I recommend it. What I did was drill more nails and basically re-constructed it. Otherwise, save your money.
