Bed is very easy to assemble and sturdy when done. But ours came with cracks in the bed rail and headboard. Overstock did work to replace bed rail which was cracked (safety issue) but took almost 2 weeks to get part. They Manufacturer) also put warning stickers in very conspicuous places and they do not come off easily. Large one on head board left huge amount of sticker and can't get it off. Afraid to use goo gone or other product because of painted finish. Paint job is also uneven in places.
I had a different experience with this purchase than some of the others here it seems. I bought this for my child and it was shipped to my door ASAP. Was incredibly easy to build, sturdy and all for a reasonable price. So reasonable that i bought some new sheets for it as well, so #winning.
I liked the simple style of this bed, but unfortunately it didn't work out for us. It is not the best quality and (I didn't see this in the description) it has a warning sticker that it only holds 125 lbs--so you can't lie down next to your kid at night to read. We had to return.
