This is a great bed! We bought it for our toddler, and it looks great in her room! The quality is really outstanding - so very solid, and the color is really pretty. I do think that it is just a shade lighter than in the picture. HOWEVER, the trundle in this bed is a TWIN trundle. When I called overstock they ensured me that the trundle was full size, and, boy, was I happy that we did not order the mattress for it at the same time! Overstock e-mailed me 2 days after I've made my purchase saying that the trundle is, indeed a twin-size trundle. Anyhow, I do highly recommend this bed. Is looks very durable, and the trundle comes all the way out - you can even take it to a different room if such need arises!
