We bought the bed knowing that with that price we aren't buying a quality piece. The majority is partical board. Drawer sides are wood, but a couple were warped badly. When put together it looks very nice and is sturdy. The drawers aren't very deep, but slide well and great use of space. Definately need two people to put it together. There are a couple of times when it is handy to have someone hold onto the longer boards while you tighten them in place. Directions were good and had all the parts. For the price it was a good deal, but be aware that it could damage easy being the laminated partical board.
