This came in two boxes and we started putting it together to realize that we were missing the third box which came in the next day. It took us about 2 hours to put it together. You need an electric screwdriver. We still have not put the draws together due to time. I have to get used to not having space under my bed so me and my husband hit our toes on the board alot. Very nice though. It holds our 14" mattress. I am pleased.
This bed looks great but was torture to put together. It took two people and hours to complete. It had tons of screws and parts. Also, the directions were not for this model so you had to guess and try and then redo. But for the money, it looks great!
This bed is ideal for small apartments. It has three large drawers on either side and room in the middle under the mattress if needed. I store fresh towels on one side and bed sheets on the other side. Simple black design to fit any bedroom style. I purchased a headboard to complete the look. Must be careful with moving, not overly strong.
It seems sturdy, took my boyfriend a few hours to put it together. two of the drawers would not close flush, we couldn't fix it so we turned it around to hide it. Very useful for storage and I love how it kept all my clutter away and organized.........:)
I guess I was like everyone else who read the reviews and had a hard time pulling the trigger on this item since there were so many bad reviews. The price was really good so I chose to buy it. I'm glad I did. Assembly was super easy. I find it really hard to believe so many people had issues in building this thing. It did of course take about two hours and you cannot build it without help. I did most of the pre-assembly myself and when it was time to put together I had some help. Luckily all the parts arrived. So on the negative sides one of the drawers does not close all the way and I scuffed one edge of it when I dragged my mattress across it. I tried to put the mattress directly onto it and I thought it was a little stiff so I put the box springs on it and the bed is pretty high but looks and feels good. One quirky thing to keep in mind is your toes might hit the bottom since it's parallel to the edge of your mattress. It's taken some getting use to. Overall I am really happy with this buy and would recommend it for anyone wanting a good deal.
Unfortunately this product is not worth the price. It is poorly constructed. The drawers don't stay flush when closed. Also when putting it together a piece broke through the wood due to it being only about a half inch from the end of the board. I am rather disappointed with the quality of this product for the price. It was also necessary to open all three boxes at once since needed parts for step one were spread apart into each box.
Well worth the money. A little tricky to put together, took about 3-4 hours. Two of the drawers had splits in the bottom but we opted to keep it as it was already put together and the splits were on the bottom so you cannot see them unless the drawer was empty.
The slats aren't quite long enough, so they keep falling out of one side or the other. We have to lift up the mattress and adjust them every so often. Also, the wood fell apart very easily during construction. We had to use some wood glue on a couple of spots, even though we were very careful.
Overall the thought of this item was great, but the wood and pieces that come with this item we're just ABSOLUTELY CHEAP; I have had to replace three items, And now I am about to have another item replaced. thankfully the warranty is okay, but after the two years is up i feel like i am going to need to replace immediately.
