Beautiful bed, looks just as I expected from pictures. Had looked at any other beds on line and in furniture stores but am so glad I made this purchase.
The bed is well built and the fit and finish is good. I would have preferred if the top two horizontal rails on the tops of the head and tail pieces had been fastened with a little more attention to detail/fit and finish. On my, there are 3 holes either plugged or puttied to cover the screws attaching the top. If they are plugged, it would have been preferred to color match the plugs a bit better. In either case, the wood was not completely sanded smooth so, when looking at an angle to the surface, it's easy to see a slight bump at each hole.
Despite having a bad cold the first night I slept in my new bed, I felt totally comfortable. The bed is beautiful and fits very nicely in our room.
