This is a very handsome bed for my son - truly masculine. It is easy to put together but be prepared to do some additional construction. The bed comes with three slats only. If you put a mattress alone (as in memory foam) this is not enough support. I had to add more slats and also plywood. The bed is now very sturdy and a substantial piece of furniture. Also, you will most likely have to ask Overstock to send you additional nuts and screws as they are improperly packaged so you will not get the full set. With all that behind us, we are very happy with the bed.
