We purchased this bed a few weeks ago for our sons bedroom and it arrived this morning. It advises 2 people and 1 hour to put together (for the small double) and well, I'm not the DIY type nor massively strong and I managed to put it together myself. It took more than 1 hour, but with 2 young children (3 and 6 months) I managed to do it in 3, I didn't think I'd even get close to finishing without my partners help! You have the head and foot of the bed, two side pieces, the slats are already in the metal base and the velcro bottom base so not in a million pieces like usual!
We ordered in store and knew the colour we were getting, but it is definitely darker than in the main photograph, it's dark grey not silver/grey.
I really recommend this bed, it's perfect for our son and I'd happily have it myself too! The only downside is it's gone down in price by 50 in the few weeks we have been waiting for it to be delivered and whilst in store we were told we wouldn't get it cheaper than what we paid .. obviously not true.
