I love this bed! I didn't get the bedding, instead I made bedding of my own so I can't speak for that, but the bed itself is darling. I called CS to make sure it was hard wood and they assured me that it is. It has such cute little details and I didn't notice until it came that it has a different foot and head board. It was also very easy to assemble using only 4 screws and 4 washers. Overall I give this bed the highest marks for complete satisfaction!
