I bought this for my 2 year old daughter when it was [$] in feb. the assembly was simple...took about 2 hours. this bed is sturdy and she loves her bed! its a very pretty bed and I am so happy with it that we waited till it [was $] again to by my son a matching one! the one and only thing that sucks is the twin mattress doesnt seem to fit in there I think it needs a full size mattress. perfect bed!!!
Assembling this was the easy part it took time but no issues. I did end up with one extra small wooden peg, not sure if it was extra or what.
As others have mentioned a twin mattress will be too small. This bed fits a 40.5 by 78 mattress. A twin mattress will be 38 or 39 by 74 or 75. So you'll have an extra inch on each side, and 3 inches extra on top or bottom. A twin XL mattress is 38 or 39 by 80, its too bad the end isnt 2 inches longer then it would be a perfect fit. Think ill get a twin mattress and put extra padding or something on the ends. On the plus side its so long the kids can use it longer as they can grow into it.
This I bought in store [for $], so it was a real bargain. The frame was really easy to put together and feels solid and heavy. It looks great and is really sturdy, even with a toddler bouncing around in it. There is about a 1 to 1.5 inch gap around the standard twin mattress at the edges. It seems bothersome, but once we got the bedding on there it looked great and was no longer an issue.
We did have a few issues with assembly. One post didn't have holes drilled [...]. Also the slats were filthy, we have to clean them before using them.
Overall, this is a great bed for the price I paid. I wouldn't pay full price for it, but it is really a good bed!
