Our almost 15 yrs old son choose this Tuscany bed on Os site, when we just had to get him a new bed, since he was now too long for his regular Twin bed, and I must say he his very happy with it. He just loves his new big queen size bed! Once he picked this bed, I read all the reviews before purchasing, and except for needing more slate support (all the reviews stated this fact) for the mattress (since we did not want to use a box spring) the bed is really very nice and sturdy for a teenage boy, he will have this one for a very long time. We give this bed 5 stars for looks, ease of assembling and for being very sturdy. We would recommend this Tuscany bed, but be warned that you will need extra slates for supporting the mattress/box spring. We purchase from our local lumber store 5 extra 3x60 plywood and this fixed our support problem:). Thanks again Overstock as always for putting out good quality products and fast shipping.
