I was unsure about buying a bed online, but figured I would give it a try. I am so glad I did!! This bed has been a wonderful addition to my bedroom. Not only does it look absolutely gorgeous but is very comfortable as well. It took no time to put together and the directions were clear enough for my kids to even understand. The only problem I found was I didn't realize that you can't use your boxspring, other than that I'd say buy it.
