The most helpful aspect to me in making the choice of 2 of these Fenton twin beds was reading the reviews of other buyers. I was particularly concerned about selecting the "color" of the frames, just by looking at the photo or the description. As another reviewer wrote, the color Butter Pecan implied yellow, but they are not yellow. The frames are a grayish/beige-ish off-white with a matte gold antiqued streaking. They are quite good looking. I was also unclear from the sales ad whether the head board and foot board actually came with sideboards; yes, quite substantial ones. I was able to put the bed together by myself [although it took quite a bit of studying of the drawings] and I am thoroughly satisfied with their look. No one has slept in them yet, so not sure whether there is any noise or creaking, but if there is, I'm certain I would just need to tighten a screw.
