I did a lot of research before buying this bed. The reviews on Overstock were all pretty consistent, and I am very happy with the look of the bed. It is well made, and very sturdy. It did take me awhile to put it together, but I did it myself (about 2.5 hours) so it probably would have gone faster if I had someone help me put it together. A few issues however. I was missing two hex nuts so I have to go buy some from the hardware store. Always a pain when they do not include everything. Secondly, the open end wrench they include is useless. I ended up using a regular wrench to hold onto the hex nuts while I used the allen wrench to tighten up the screws. The side rails do not have a big lip so my mattress tends to move around a lot. Luckily I have the bed up in a corner so the mattress is braced against the walls. If you have the bed in the middle of a room the mattress might shift a bit. The footboard is pretty insignificant size wise. Even on the lowest setting it is only about 4 inches above my mattress, and I am not using a box spring. The bed otherwise looks great and Overstock providing quick and easy shipping. The two boxes everything came in were a bit heavy (one was 60 lbs), but still managable. Overall a very excellent purchase. BTW, stock up on some powdered graphite to lubricate the bed frame. If you use WD40 it will squeek since WD40 is oil based and attracts dust to metal.
This bed looks great and feel very sturdy once assembled. There were a few parts missing from the bag but I made it work. The frame itself is the exact color that I thought it would be ... not black, but just a few shades above that ... kind of a charcoal or dark dark brown color. I'm using it without the box spring and it's perfect. It is nice that it could be used both ways.
Assembly took about 2 hours with 2 people helping. Awesome bed at a great price.
the bed frame is great looking and very easy to assemble, and what is really nice about this bed is you can actually use this a a regular bed with mattress or as a platform bed. the memory foam i bought fit right well...
I love this bed. I'm so glad we bought this. I wanted a metal bed (because I am a big girl) with a farmhouse look and my husband wanted a wood (ie particle board) bed that looked all uber modern. This was a perfect compromise. It looks just like the picture and I'm pleased as punch. I was nervous to buy something like a bed without seeing it in person, but this was a great buy. It's uber sturdy (the metal's quite heavy and solid) and totally worth the price. AND it was totally easy to put together. Only took us about an hour.
The bed was easy to assemble, it took me and husband about an hour to complete it. It is a very sturdy bed .
Though it appears black in the picture the actual color is Chracoal. Still looks good though. I am very happy with my purchase.
It is definitely sturdy and elegant for a metal frame. The grayness of the metal is not as dark as it appears in the images online. As some reviewers also noted, the screws that come with this product are useless and need to be replaced. So we had to make a trip to the hardware store. Easier to assemble with two people--took less than 2 hrs. Overall, it is a decent product for its price--this review is based on less than one month of use.
I read a bunch of the other reviews and chose this bed for my empty guest room. I expected it to be sturdy, dark gray, and easy to out together based on the reviews. It was all of those things.
I did get a full bag of bolts and tools to out it together with. I did, however, choose to use a socket wrench rather than the small wrench included in the hardware. I had one and it helped the assembly go faster.
I did flip the side fails upside down during assembly. I looked over the instructions and interpreted the diagram differently. If you're assembling it, be careful of that.
I currently don't have a box spring with the mattress, however, I'm going to out one on there. The sheets I picked up at XXXXXX are really long so keeping them from falling down under the foot board annoys me. Very minor detail. The bed really doesn't need a box spring. It's really sturdy.
It's attractive and stylish. A good value.
Looks fantastic, feels really sturdy -- a million parts so it took about 2 hours for me to put together by myself. I'd recommend having a friend help, as the metal sides are really heavy and can fall on you (i know this from experience) and that hurts. :) A bit tough to tuck the quilt in at the foot board, but it looks fantastic.
Great bed. Solid as a rock! Well build.
When assembling, I would recomend using wing nuts rather than the crapy little nuts that come with the bed. Wing nuts will save a great deal of time and hassle.
Otherwise, all great.
(as for the person who wrote the review about the mattress sliding off becuse there is no "lip" to keep it in place... the person assembled it incorrectly. I see how the error was made, but be sure when attaching the mattress platform to the headboard and footboard, you have it right side up. You'll know what I mean...
Yes, I have a box spring and a foam mattress on mine.addgre on Nov 8, 2013

Just looked under my bed purchased 2009 and it has 2 support legs in the middle. None on the side rails.1sassymae on May 10, 2013
The center supports are included and seem to fit perfectly I used the two longer ones. I am using it with just a mattress so I put it on the higher level setting.If it's not high enough for storage I'll get lifts for it I guess.qvlty1 on May 23, 2013
I just put it together there is 2 center support legs one middle bar you really don't need a box spring with this bed. you probably could put it on the top but sturdiness might change?????mothermaggie1 on Jul 9, 2013
I didn't notice a weight limit, so I don't know.qvlty1 on May 23, 2013
I see a number of questions about the slats to support the mattress but no clear answer. Please confirm if the supplied slats make a true platform for the mattress to sit on or if it doesn't make a true platform please confirm the average width of the the slat and the number of slats provided.todotodone1 on Oct 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

How much space (height) from the floor to the bottom of the bed? I'm looking at how much storage I would actually have.ippolitius on Mar 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This bed is actually an adjustable platform so that it can be used with a box spring or without. The upper holes without a box spring will give it 9 inches of clearance, and the lower holes will provide 5 and 1/8 in. clearance. Please note there is a center support leg.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 15, 2012
