The final product looks really nice, and we love the handsome color. It is my toddler's new "big boy bed". I think it will serve it's purpose for the next several years, and I am happy we bought it. However, the assemebly instructions were very difficult to read and understand. We had to take it apart several times and start over. Because of this, the wood actually tore apart in two locations, but luckily it was on the inside/bottom and it won't show. We bought touch -up stain for the corners and edges that were frayed. It is cheap furniture, so be ready to get what you paid for!
