I was very cautious purchasing this bed being that it was online and It being an expensive purchase. Not seeing it in person, I had to really trust the reviews and my research. I was not disappointed! First the shipping was much quicker than expected. It came within 10 days of the initial purchase. The bed came in perfect condition, the directions were fairly easy and I had it together within an hour. The bed itself is extremely sturdy which was very important to me. The wood is very solid, well made, and looks absolutely gorgeous. The only thing I’d say was not perfect is the headboard has a tiny bit of give when you lean on it, but that’s due to that fact it’s held up by two metal posts. It just happens. Ideally I’d love if it didn’t move at all. Overall tho extremely impressed with this purchase and satisfied!
