I usually do not order an item unless others have reviewed it. This was an exception. My college-age son wanted a black platform bed and I had been unable to locate anything in local furniture stores. Overall, the bed looks good in his room and he is pleased with it. However, I'm somewhat disappointed in the quality of the materials. The pressed board construction is far from furniture quality. In light of that, I feel the price is too high for what you get, particularly with the extensive assembly time. This bed is not for someone who is not experienced in assembling things. My husband, who is quite proficient, spent about 6 hours overall on the assembly. He said the directions are very clear, all parts were included, but it just took time. If he had not been able to do this, I would have had to hire someone!
We couldn't wait to received ourbed because we were very excited about having a new look in our bedroom. We like the color, the simply lines, the finish, and the practicality of the bed. Once it arrived, we were ready to put it together.
All parts arrived on time and together, and aside from minor scratches, the product looked good at its arrival.
We (partner and I) were able to put the bed together in less than three hours. The instructions were clear and the steps to follow were simple. The most challenging part to ensemble were the drawers; the instructions were clear, but the execution of such instructions was no piece of cake. It did get us a little frustrated, but at the end, we made it happened.
Other reviewers mentioned the used of an electric drill (in order to make things go faster.) Honestly, you don't need one, but you do need two good screw drivers.
Make sure to count all your pieces and make sure of their quality before you start but it ended up being exactly what I was looking for and the price is great for the product you get.
A couple of pieces were missing and a couple of the boards were warped when I received it. But we called and they replaced all the damaged and missing pieces very quickly.
Not difficult at all to put together though there are alot of pieces so it takes a little time.
First, I want to be up front and say that other people that buy MDF flat-pack furniture on this site have really unreasonable expectations. For the money paid, this product is well worth it. You can't expect to pay cheap for solid wood products. You get what you pay for. That being said, I am happy with the quality of this product, for the price paid.
Bed wasn't hard to build, it took me about 3 hours, by myself. I did have a problem in that the right sides of the drawers were missing. I received 12 left sides, and 0 right sides. Per the flyer included, I contacted the manufacturer and they pleasantly sent me the missing pieces via UPS, arriving 3 days later.
Like others have said, the drawer materials and bottoms are pretty thin and mediocre, compared to other Flat Pack manufacturers. I wouldn't put very heavy items in these drawers without reinforcing the bottoms. There is no brace on the bottom of these drawers. My biggest complaint about the bed is that the drawers aren't very deep (as in height). Considering the ample amount of unused space both above and below the drawers in the frame, the manufacturer could easily have designed larger drawers.
Fortunately, I discovered that the drawers are high enough off the ground that I am actually able to store items underneath the drawers (removing the drawers). I am able to store 12 plastic storage boxes (slightly smaller than shoe boxes) underneath EACH drawer.The amount of storage I now have is quite impressive, really.
I've had the bed now for about 3 weeks and all is holding up well. I do recommend buyers get a black furniture pen (I use a black sharpie) for touch-ups. You'll need it. The veneer is quite thin on this bed and scratches easily. Fortunately, the black is pure black and easily matches Sharpie ink.
all-in-all, I'm happy with my purchase. The price is great and the amount of storage i have is better than I could have imagined.

I was excited for this product because all my previous purchases overstock has been really good. But i was disappointed after seeing the finished product. Assembly was simple, just took 4-5 hours in total to assemble everything and instructions were also clear. But out of 6, 5 drawers does not close properly. They is gap on one side. I have no idea how to correct and it does not look good in the bedroom because of that.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? compared well
Please tell us about the quality of the product. moderate
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty well except the drawers
In previous reviews they keep mentioning how difficult the bed is so hard to built. Well it was very easy and stress free. Yes you must have two people and a bottle of wine . Everything was in the package we needed. The directions a child can understand. I love my new platform bed and the storage OMG its great. I place my towels and shoes. I don't like to have shoes everywhere. They get placed in the drawers which yes they are not deep, but very wide so you can put at least five towels rolled up. Very sturdy.My Mickey is a tall and not very slim person. We have not had a problem . Arrived quickly. I'm happy
None of the parts were labelled! It was like searching for a needle in a haystack. Had I wanted something from Ikea, I would've paid someone from their store to put it together. Never again! This was a gift for my Mother. I came all the way from Tx to put this together for her. It's been in the box since May.
A good quality item for the price. I would love better construction, but that simply won't squeeze into the price point for this product. I am very pleased with the overall quality. It does require some time to assemble, but no more or less than I expected. I would recommend this product.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color matched the ad, as expected

Will this platform base sustain the weight of both a mattress and box springs?45789 on Jun 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello 45789. Thanks for your interest in the Black Queen Mate's 6-drawer Platform Storage Bed. I believe that this bed would support the weight of a mattress and box springs, but with the slat system that the bed has, you wouldn't need a box spring. It would also be too tall. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us.

It appears that 2/3 of the pictures shown are not for this bed. Looks like they match "Yaletown Black Queen 6-drawer Platform Storage Bed" instead. Or are there 2 different designs in your warehouse for this product, including one identical to the Yaletown storage bed?no2h8 on Dec 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You are correct, They have the wrong pictures up. I will send this over to get it corrected.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 20, 2012
