Overall, these plans were easy to follow. It took me a little bit longer to complete, and definitely needed someone to help attach the bed rails to the headboard and footboard. We stained prior to putting the bed together, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to get the bed into the house.
For the night stand, the plans call for 4 boards across the top, but it definitely takes 5 so keep that in mind. I used pocket holes to attach the front and back of the top piece to the night stand, and then did nails to attach the sides of the top to the sides of the night stand.
