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.
This bed is very sturdy! Nice metal slats, everything bolts together tightly. I am a large guy this bed handles me and my 14in memory foam mattress easily. It dose not squeak or rattle at all. As other reviews have stated it is NOT black, but a very nice dark slate grey which I like even better! The slats are however black, but not like you can see them with a meatress on.
I love how all the reviews for these cheap bedframes start out, "I bought this for my guest room..." Anyway, we bought this for our guest room, not willing to spend much more than this but still looking for something with a style that would fit in. Assembly was fairly easy (took longer to unpack than to put together), except for one nit: the bolts that secure the slats to the siderails don't fit the screws perfectly and couldn't be tightened all the way. It doesn't affect the structural integrity but it does produce some creaking sounds when you get on the bed so I will have to go to a hardware store to get bolts and screws that actually work together, one of these days.
Despite being an ordeal to unpack, the packing wasn't so great as one of the side rails took a major dent. I'm sure Overstock would have taken care of it but I didn't want to deal with that since this part would be covered by the bedding anyway.
My main issue was the physical appearance. The color is much more of a medium grey than the almost-black slate in the picture, and it also has a plain, uniform gloss rather than the more matte/textured appearance that the picture suggests. The result is a very industrial, institutionalized look, like a bedframe you'd expect to see in a military barracks or a hospital or something. There are also some molding imperfections in it. You know those generic metal folding chairs that used to be everywhere before they started using generic plastic ones? The metal here looks like that. The Asian-influenced Craftsman-type pattern of the headboard redeems it somewhat but the closer you get the worse it looks - it looks fine when you're surveying the room I guess, but when you look at the bed closely it looks like exactly what it is, a nicely sturdy but very cheap product.
Read a lot of the reviews before buying this bed. Delivered quickly and my son assembled it before I got home from work with no problems. I looks great and is very sturdy and beautiful. All the parts were included. No box springs needed. I love it.
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.
It did fine for me.. I can put them behind me and read my books easily.malaa1900 on Jun 30, 2014

So with 400lb limit you mention, if I'm using a mattress that's 111lbs and I weigh 160lbs, if I happen to have someone else with me in bed, I need to make sure they weigh less than 130? And if I happen to use 40lb box spring, I'm likely sleeping alone?overanalyzingshopper on Apr 29, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us overanalyzingshopper. The bed has not been weight tested. It is designed to hold a box spring and mattress plus 2 adults. Don't use the box spring and it will support more weight. I hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on May 5, 2014

What's the supportive deck for if the mattress will be sitting on the slats? And if I use a memory foam mattress, over time, will the slats cause misshape of the mattress?fxc118 on Apr 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello fxc118, The supportive deck is part of the slat system. Memory Foam mattress are best on solid bases. You could place 1 inch thick plywood sheets down over the slats to provide a solid base with this bed.

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
