We ordered this bed along with the bookcase headboard and we love it! The drawers are roomy and we did not use the shelves in the headboard. It was not hard to put together - it took my husband and I about 4 hours to put both together - but we enjoyed spending the time together. Definitely use a cordless drill or power screwdriver to make assembly quicker and easier. The only problem was that either one of the screws or nuts was not threaded right. There was enough support to still use the bed and I got online and asked them to send me one of each and they arrived in about one week. We are thrilled with the bed and the storage space. I had things stored under the bed that I don't need very often (we have little storage space in our home) and I put them under the bed prior to putting the drawers in - so I made extra storage space.
