Why did you choose this product?
I bought these two captain's beds in May, it is now November. The beds went together. Most of it I did alone, a few things I got help with. The slats for under the bed were probably the most frustrating part. But everything ended up coming together on both beds. One of the drawers hangs out about 1/8 of an inch on one corner, so I probably set the rollers back an extra hole on that part. But I'm going to leave it for the mean time. My little ones have disobeyed me and jumped on their beds, without breaking them. My 50lb girl stepped on the front of the draw (not inside) without breaking it off. I lay on the beds at night with them for stories about 185lbs , About 270 total lbs with my little ones. They have jumped on me while I've been laying on the beds. I'd say these will hold up pretty well. One Con is that I would have liked for an option to purchase 6 more drawers for the other side of the bed rather then just having the six on one side. I could then have a drawer for each of their different styles of shirts, pant, short, dresses, skirts, skorts, pajamas, undies, socks, sport clothes.. you get the idea. Particle board.. but both of ours came out awesome. There was one nick on one of the panels that are meant to face a wall. It was covered up with the edges it slides into. If there were 6 more drawers I wouldn't even need that panel....

Exactly what we needed for your 6 and 9 year old boys who share a room but no longer wanted bunkbedsRead More
A bit tricky to assemble, definitely need 2 people unless you enjoy frustration. Not a super quality piece of furniture but definitely sturdy enough and lots of great storage for small spaces and shared rooms!Read More
This bed was very easy to assemble. It was missing a few screws and bolts. We called the company and hopefully will receive them soon. Also, there was a chip in the headboard that exposes the fiberboard, but rather than try to ship it back we kept it since that piece was going in a corner anyway. The box it arrived in was in terrible condition, as usual when shipping UPS.Otherwise, we like the bed. The drawers are a good size. Keep in mind that this bed is tall! If you are buying it for a small child you msy want to get a bed rail if you are concerned about falling out of bed. It's a good 3+ feet off the floor with just the mattress on top.Read More
The price is higher now with the 20% offer than is was last at the regular price.Read More
I am fortunate to be dating a guy who is skilled in carpentry. Together he and my brother and I got it put together in about two hours. I hate to think how long it would have taken without him. He brought a hammer and a power drill that made all the difference in the world since there are about 47,836 screws. In conclusion, for assembly you will need the following: 1. A carpenter. 2. A hammer. 3. A power drill. 4. At least two hours. I wish you the best of luck.Read More
it took about 6hrs for 1 person to put it together and maybe that maybe be the problem but its not sturdy. even though the screws are as tight as i could get them..its very wobbly but i wouldn't buy another one..because it seems like it wont last long..Read More
(I wrote a very detailed review and Overstock erased everything I had written when I submitted, so a very quick review only.) This is the cheapest-quality piece of furniture I have ever owned, with 4 out of 6 drawers no longer closing properly after only a few months of use. The screws don't fit properly and break the chipboard which makes the drawer bottoms bend down so that it is virtually impossible to close the drawers. Invest in something of better quality because you will have to replace this one shortly.Read More
I bought 4 of these beds! First off, the instructions are a bit complicated. I'm estimating that it took about 5 hours to assemble the first bed and about 2-3 hours to complete the last 3. Secondly the material is only pressed partical board CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!!!! I am very disappointed, at $*** I was expecting better quality One of the middle bracers broke, so I had to reorder that part, also the finish scratches VERY easily. Finally and most aggravating the drawers wont last! The only thing holding them together are 4 nails and a plastic screw thing. I had to improvise and buy 40$ worth of material (3/8 inch plywood and wood glue) to assure they would hold up. Not to mention the time it took. Over all this products SUCKS!!!!Read More
It took a couple of days to put together. the instructions are clear and supplies fin but it is a lot to build,especially with 6 drawers. It is quite tall when done, you have to hop up onto the bed once the mattress is in place. At first i wondered if the construction was solid enough but now that it is all put together it does seems enough- even for my teenager. The finish is more easily scratched that I would like, the area where the drawers is beginning to show a bit of wear and we have had it 6 months. Not sure what to apply to protect the surface.Read More
