I spent far too much money on my first baby's crib and wanted something just to get us through the first few years with #2. This crib was very easy to assemble. I did it at 7 months pregnant with "help" from my 3 year old in about an hour. All pieces were clearly marked and easy to assemble. Having assembled multiple similar type products, absolutely adhere to the "no power tools" and "do not over-tighten" recommendations. You could split the wood. I haven't used this yet to speak to wear and tear. I can tell you it survived some Allan wrench and screwdriver slips without chipping. This product includes the toddler railing which is another perk as many don't and are either unavailable for purchase or add significant cost.
Have had this crib for seven months now. Took about an hour to setup with my husband. Can't remember any major issues with setup. Toddler rail fits underneath the crib so we just store in there. Once my baby was older, he was getting his hands and feet stuck in between the slats because he was rolling around (common problem with most cribs) so just got mesh breathable bumpers to block the slats (was able to get gray ones that go nicely with the crib).
This crib is absolutely beautiful!!!! It's design is so sleek and modern! It looks like a $$$+ crib comparable to Pottery Barn and other high end stores. I can't say enough about it.... I purchased the crib in white and its a very bright crisp white. I can't wait for our little one to try it out!! It also comes with the toddler rail, which a lot of the other ones out there do not. I am very happy and so glad I found another quality item on Overstock!!! :)
