This is a terrifically built bed. It's sturdy, nice in color, the drawers on the sides are very useful. I love everything about it - no screeching, no spring boxes, it's great. The only thing I would say is that it came with no instructions for how to put it together and my husband had to figure it out as he went. Fortunately, he is savvy at that sort of thing, but if you are not, it might be a little complicated.
