First of all, it looks pretty good. I've had mine over a year now, and we decided to screw each and every bed slat down, because they were constantly falling out of the headboard or footboard (these go lengthwise for some reason). Now it is better. It also helped to "square" the bed too, it didn't stay square after we assembled it, since our mattress is just latex foam. We thought it might help the drawers to close better too, but they still don't. I wish the drawers had some kind of dust guard over them, between the bottom of the mattress and the top of the drawers, but they don't. Overall, looks pretty good for the price, adds a little storage, but screw down the slats and you will like it more.
