I was skeptical after reading the reviews but the bed is just so pretty and classy I couldn't resist. I know things happen, accidents, mixups, etc. But I'm glad I took my chances. Once the bed was put together I was hoping it would have been a tad bit more sturdy. But in reality it is very sturdy. If I was ever worried any more about the weight capacity (which i wont be, I'm 120 plus my toddler at 40 lbs.), there is room to screw in your own slats if you get some more wood. The vertical support system is the part that worried me because it is what the horizontal slats are screwed into, but the vertical wood piece is not screwed into the bottom or the headboard. Once everything was put together it wasn't as bad as I thought though. Also, the bed came in two boxes. In each box there was a paper set of instructions. These are the absolute worst instructions you will ever come across, I promise. There are about 4 steps listed for the whole process! Also, the instructions in one of my boxes was not for my bed. After all is said and done and after all the hesitation and worry I am extremely glad I purchased this bed. It's higher than my last platform bed, but it gives me room for storage under my bed. It is very classy looking and completely changed the look of my room for the better. It's a beautiful bed. My son jumps on my bed and the bed doesn't squeek or shift or anything. I only use a mattress, no box spring. Completely satisfied overall. Thank you overstock! Also, somewhere from the warehouse to my house the box also picked up a HUUUUGE SPIDER!!!! So watch out for that kinda thing!! :)
