I bought this bed to save some space in my son's small bedroom. I thought that by having the drawers I wouldn't need a dresser. After assembling the bed I found that the drawers are not only flimsy, they hold next to nothing. The bed looks nice, but is not very practical. Also, under the mattress there are only wooden slats instead of a single board so anything that slips under the mattress falls either into the drawers or deep underneath the bed. I was disappointed by this purchase.
