Horrible instructions, but beautiful crib
Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2017
I started assembling the crib by myself at around 1:30pm, and finished at 6:30pm. I am in my third trimester, so I was taking many breaks, and was also cooking within that time as well (just to give you an idea of how long it took me to assemble myself). I had no patience to wait for my husband to come home from work, and assembled as soon as it came in the mail.
The instructions were absolutely horrible. They were also incomplete. The were many steps in the pictures that were not written out, so a lot of it I just had to figure out on my own. I kept a ruler nearby so I can measure the bolts and screws to make sure I was using the correct sizes. Absolutely nothing was labeled. Most of it was pretty easy to figure out though. Some steps I wish would've been done before others.
Overall, the actual assembly was pretty easy. The crib looks absolutely beautiful, and I can't wait to use it. All of my baby's clothes fit in the drawers, so that saves on having to buy a dresser. The shelves on the back of the changer are very convenient for diapers, wipes, etc.
The changing table is a very awkward size. It is 27.5" x 16". Extremely difficult to find a better changing pad to fit it. It does come with one, but it's very thin. I ended up making my own. It was really easy, so feel free to ask if your curious.
All the parts were in almost perfect condition. Only one board had a bent corner, but it's not visible, and it did not affect assembly. I did accidentally drop one off the pieces due to the horrible instructions, and that piece has a scratch on it now. I really wish it came with a white paint pen to fix scratches. My husband didn't even notice it, so it's not that bad.
