I love the simple design of this bed. I have always wanted a four poster/canopy bed but I wanted something less ornate than most metal bed frames. I was able to assemble the headboard, footboard and base myself but it takes two people to get it all put together.
I've had this bed for nearly 2 years now and can't complain. It has been through 2 moves and has held up well. Its simple and attractive, and sturdy... surviving even my little gymnast using the top rail to practice her bar routine (no top rails on it anymore, those were taken down swiftly!). I like it - its a good bed.
I love the bed. It's very sturdy and pretty. Unfortunately, my boxes o' parts did not come with directions. I contacted Overstock via live chat, but the very nice fella said a specialist would have to help me............in one to two business days. Cleary that was unacceptable as I had already broken down my old bed. I was able to assemble it without directions; however, I wouldn't recommend it for the faint of heart. Very lovely bed though - I'm so glad I bought it.
I really didn't know what to expect with such an amazing price. So I was blown away at how nice this bed actually is. The materials and finish is very nice. The bed is very sturdy. My 12 year old daughter love love loves this bed. I highly recommend.
I was really surprised what I got for the price. This is sturdy and very pretty. If you want to hang curtains, I'd suggest installing drapery clips during assembly, because otherwise you have to dismantle to get the curtains on. It's a gorgeous bed and I'd highly recommend it.
My daughter wanted a canopy bed and I wasn't looking to pay a lot. I looked at many furniture consignment stores around my area as well as Craiglist but couldn't find anything she liked in my price range. Someone suggested Overstock and I'm glad I took a look. They had exactly what she wanted and there was FREE shipping which is a huge bonus. It took my husband awhile to put it together but it wasn't horrible. She now loves her new bed! One of the finials came broken but Overstock replaced them very quickly.
I bought this bed recently for my mother-in-law. It looks great and seems very sturdy, but I have been dealing with what I am assuming are some manufacturing errors. Something strange is happening where the short top support bars are supposed to join the tall bed posts (Parts A an B, I think). These short supports bars (Part F) are supposed to fit under a tab that extends from the tall bed posts - and be secured by a screw that runs through the tab and into the bar. The problem is that the support bar is too thick to fit inside the curved tab on each bed post, and the screw holes in the short support bars are way too big for the screw (or any screw in the package). At first, I thought that the short support bars had an error (that the holes were drilled too big), so I called customer service. The customer service rep was extremely nice and helpful and sent replacement support bars right away. But, when these bars arrived, they were exactly the same as the previous bars (holes too large to hold the screw). So, now I wonder if the tab area on the bed posts are incorrect somehow. Luckily, tension and loose friction from the screw touching the side of the screw hole seem to be holding the top support bars in place well enough. Additionally, one of the screw holes farther down one of the bed posts contained a screw hole that was way too small to hold a screw (all the rest of the holes in that area were the correct size). There was another issue that confused me, but I don't know if it's a problem. The middle support legs under the bed do not extend all the way to the floor (as far as the bed posts). Not sure if this is intentional or not. I'm open to the possibility that I did something incorrectly, but I would be very surprised if this were true: I built the rest of the entire bed without too much problem (although it felt like the holes didn't line up as easily as they should in some places), and I've successfully built a good deal of flat-pack furniture in the past. I will also say that the bed does look very nice, and I was able to make it work despite the above-mentioned issues (which would not be visible to anyone just looking at the piece). Customer service was also very nice. Seeing that other reviewers were satisfied, I'm guessing that I may have had bad luck and received a piece with some errors, but I'm reviewing the piece that I received. If there had been no errors, I would be very satisfied with this piece. It seems sturdy and looks great.
Easily assembled with the help of my 12 year old daughter. The bed was sturdy and all the parts were well made and quite heavy. The bed looks great in my daughter's room. Great value for the price. Make sure your room is big enough for this piece. It's quite high, and it might overpower a room with low ceilings.
I am very happy with this bed. I got this item in two days. It came in two long heavy boxes. If you have a small apartment like porch, you should leave instructions for the delivery company or set it up with Overstock. Ladies, unless you workout heavily, wait till you have assistance to bring the boxes in. They are incredibly heavy. I have owned both high-end and inexpensive furniture. This is inexpensive, but doesn't look like it. The bed is simple, sturdy and attractive. It does have some small areas of sloppy welding, but you can't see it unless you look very closely. I wouldn't expect fine craftsmanship for this price. It wasn't difficult to put together at all. It took my husband and I about two hours. Would have taken one hour, but we lost the LAST bolt we needed to put up the final post. Beware, the ENTIRE bed uses an Allen key. If you don't have an Allen drill attachment, I suggest getting one before you assemble this bed. It requires a LARGE area to assemble. We took our old bed down and leaned our mattresses against the wall to create room to build it. The finish doesn't scratch easily, however, we did scratch it once while bumping the peices together. Also, I accidentally hit the ceiling with one of the horizontal poles and it left a big black mark. After we finished, I draped 60" x 216" sheer voile scarfs in burgundy and black along all four sides and in the corners to match the rich colors of our bedding. I also hung Moroccan lamps with battery operated tea lights in the corners. I am debating on placing fabric on the very top. For now, having the valance shaped scarves on the side poles and hanging down the posts is enough. This set up created a sort of sexy cocoon. My husband and I love it.
Bought this bed for my 4 year old granddaughter's room my wife and I put together. Since everything needed to be white, we had to paint the bed white. It turned out unbelievable. With the canopy cover on it, she feels like the princess she is whenever she is in her room. The bed is extremely well constructed and engineered. Did not even both looking at the instructions for assembly since it was extremely intuitive how it went together. The price was unbeatable on Overstock as well.
very very happy! I'm 25 single and live alone.. I wanted to treat myself like a princess so I got this bed! I'm just looking for the most perfect gold canopy or drapes for it. I did have a friend come help me put it together but I got the boxed up two stories all by myself! haha. it was such a good deal too!! half the price of any other canopy frame I could find except for this sunburst crappy one that doesnt even come with a frame. No issues putting it together, just takes some common sense, things arent labeled but they dont need to be because if you do step one (count the materials) you know what everything is after that!
