The bed frame was delivered in 5 days. (Quick Delivery) I put the bed together by myself. I did have a slight problem but that was on my end. I would suggest adding the cross bar and not the headboard in the first step of the directions. In the second step of the direction after you have the rails together with the foot of the bed then add the headboard. If you purchase this product, you'll understad what I'm writing here. I added the headboard in the first step but when I went to put the rails together in the second step by myself, the head board toppled over and bent the rail and then I had to bang out the rail because it was bent. The bed frame looks really nice and it is a good quality product.
Great bed, it did arrive with slightly sub-par packaging so there was a little chip on the headboard, but overall, you cannot go wrong, especially for this price. This product is also well built as it is all metal and was pretty simple to put together. Everyone that sees this bed is amazed at how great it is and the price. Great find, can't go wrong. Overstock.com customer service was the best I've ever experienced online (they had a glitch and more than made sure that I was happy).
I ordered this bed along with a mattress from Overstock.com last month. My husband and I love it. It looks very nice and can be paired with just about any furniture. It is very sturdy too. I only wish that there was a higher setting to have it on because I am not using a box spring and would prefer the bed to just be a tad higher. Other than that though, it was a great buy.
This is a very good bed frame, solid welds and nice joints. Wish is had one more slat by the foot board, there's about a 5 inch gap between the last last and then end of the bed. Not a ture black more like a deep deep coffee brown, looks good with walnut. It was actually very easy to put together, took me a little over an hour by myself. A scew gun is a must as there are many many bolts that hols down the slats.
We love the look of the bed after we assembled it, but getting it in place was difficult because the frame was so heavy and the shipment was short half the screws needed to assemble the bed. We had to go to Ace and buy more parts to complete the assembly.
Don't use it in the middle of a room! Unfortunately this bed is built to be up against a wall, so those of us who like stuff spaced out will have problems... namely with the headboard portion. Because it's barred, pillows will fall through (AND DO THEY FALL THROUGH!) Very solid once assembled, put together myself in around 90 minutes. Very STURDY, very attractive, very affordable. I would easily recommend this to someone else, but keep in mind what type of a room layout you want before you make the buy!
The frame is very sturdy and looks pretty good. Everything has a top quality finish and parts are nicely protected from scratching during transport. There is a minor design flaw: the head board design is very open, so your pillow might slowly slip through it during the night (depending on your sheets). We solved this with an additional long pillow along the head board (full width of the bed).
I love this bed! It arrived quickly, all the pieces were included, nothing was damaged and the directions were easy to follow. I was going to wait for my husband to come home from work to help me assemble it ...but i got on a roll and did the whole thing myself. Tools are included, but I found that using a socket set made the work go much faster. It is well made and has the added feature of having bars that act as a platform so that you can adjust the height and use it with or without a boxspring. All this and so good looking too...who could ask for more! Loving Overstock!
This bed is just beautiful. There was a very small nick in the footboard. However, once the bed was completed and set up with the boxsping and mattress you can't even see it. The bed is very well made and the assembly was very easy. Once again, I'm a very pleased with my Overstock purcahse. Thanks.
When my husband and I decided we needed a bigger bed, I started the research. All the king beds everywhere we looked were expensive and/or made poorly. I started looking on Overstock.com because you can get the best unbiased opinions here. I thought the bed looked nice on the site, but it was even better in person! It is very sturdy, and it looks great! It's just as nice (if not nicer) that the expensive beds we were looking at in the big-name stores. The only con: we were missing some screws in our shipment, but that was an easy fix. I took one to the local hardware store and matched it easily. Also, just a note--it will take a little while to put together (and it is easier with two people). It is very well-made! Another excellent purchase!!
