When bed was taken out of the box the wood brackets to hold the side rails in place were broken and had to be repaired before the bed could be assembled. The slats that are provided to hold the mattress or boxsprings are very flimsy and should be covered with a piece of plywood to provide additional support. The overall finish of the bed is good and appears as it does in the ad. I would advise you against using a boxspring due to the fact that the height of the headboard and footboard would be greatly compromised and your bed would look nothing like it does in the ad.
I am happy with the overall purchase of this bed. The headboard came poorly wrapped and damaged, but after contacting Overstock, a replacement was shipped, very well packaged, and we were able to put it together. A minor inconvenience. I bought this for my two year old granddaughter and she absolutely loves it. It seems sturdy enough, so hopefully she'll get many years of use out of it.
