I bought this set in white (really off-white) for my tween daughter and she really loves it. It was very securely package with each item being double-boxed. There wasn't a great deal of drawer space in the dresser since it has only shelve on one side, so I will have to purchase another unit for her to store belongings (the trundle). I do believe this was a a really nice bedroom set for the money and I'm sure it will carry her through her teens!
The directions lack some detail so I had to redo a couple of steps. If you aren't paying close attention to which side needs to be facing where and what holes face where, you could be back tracking. Also only open and work in one thing at a time if you also get trundle, I didn't and it got even more confusing. I wish all screws were color coded. Only one set was. Otherwise oils great and is pretty sturdy.
I have to say that I don't understand the negative rating others have given this bed. It is very solid and well-built. It did require a little patience and time to assemble, but all the parts were included and the directions were clear, None of the wood split on me, and the bed is so well-supported that I was able to use regular mattresses without boxsprings. The upper bunk says it is rated for 150 pounds, but my teenage boys have slept in it, and they are 160lbs. The bed looks exactly like it does in the picture, and I would definitely recommend it to others!
This is a beautiful set. We've gotten a lot of compliments on it. It came packed really well. It was easy to assemble (really easy. I did it myself with minimal tools needed, not bad for a mom who stands at 5'2). I love the details in the legs, and the knobs are beautiful. Just as pictured. It is made out of a really good wood, heavy and solid.
