This is a great looking crib, but I was disappointed that it arrived damaged. There was a large crack along the top of the back panel. We reached out to Overstock for a fix, and while they were great and responsive, the seller of this item no longer offers just parts. Given the size of this package, it would have been tough to return the whole thing! We managed to make it work with some wood glue, sanding, and a bit of touch up paint. Overall this crib did have the look that I wanted. I like the fact that the front panel goes further down than others, but know that if you do choose to use the crib on the highest setting (for newborns) you will still want to purchase a crib skirt. The material feels sturdy, but it is shiny and seems more "plastic-y" rather than real wood (even though I'm guessing it is underneath). My only other issue was that you can see several of the screws when it's assembled - I wish the manufacturer would have provided a sticker or some other way to cover the screw holes! Overall I'd say if you're dead set on the look of this crib over others, like I was, it's not a bad purchase. It does look awfully cute in our nursery! However, just know that there are some more sturdy options out there that might have more easily replaceable parts should something arrive damaged.
I am a 40+ year old mom with a husband who could assemble this, but it took me less than an hour to do myself. I am pleased with the structure and appearance. The only complaint I can think of is that the castors are a gold, coated metal looking plastic - which does not look high quality, but this does not affect the crib performance, and on carpeting you probably don't need them.
Item arrived with a dent in it (I didn't unpack it until the baby's room was ready and now it is too late to return it with a newborn coming). The screws on the sides are visible - a plastic cap to cover that would go a long way. Also, the casters are not metal - they are all plastic spray painted a garish shade of gold. I got this on sale, and for the price I like it. Just keep your expectations reasonable.
