This crib is so beautiful and substantial when assembled! I ordered the Espresso finish, but it's not as dark as I expected. As in other reviews, it took a lot of time to put together, but that was expected. Unfortunately the mattress frame arrived bent, but Overstock said they will ship me a replacement part, so I am pleased with the purchase.
I bought this crib in black for my first daughter, it is very sturdy, and I love the style! It has held up amazingly well except for the main bar. I had a biter so the finish got very scratched and worn off. I love that it has multiple heights for the different stages of babyhood. My second daughter will now be using it. Overall I would purchase again :)
The crib was easy to put together. The right color/finish. No damage whatsoever. Wish the changing table came in the same finish but DaVinci makes some items you can mix and match.
As with most others, my wife and I did a significant amount of research on cribs. Though we loved the quality of the Baby Appleseed brand, we had a hard time justifying $700 on a crib, so we set our budget at $300 or below. The DaVinci brand had some great reviews, and as with all products, some no-so-great reviews. We decided to roll the dice and we don't have a single regret. The assembly was straight-forward; I put the crib together myself in about an hour, with the only tool required being a phillips screwdriver. Once assembled, I was very impressed with the overall fit and finish of the crib, and in particular, the sturdiness of it. Having purchased other "assembly required" furniture in the past, I am very happy to say this completely exceeded my expectations. Further, though I was a bit nervous to see my 90 lb package had sustained some minor damage in transit, upon opening I was relieved to find not a single imperfection. Thank you DaVinci, for making a quality product at a reasonable price!
