I like everything about this bed. First off, I would rather buy a bed frame local or built by a carpenter here but, I found out that was completely unaffordable. So, I shopped here. The frame arrived when Overstock.com said it would, it came complete w/out damage, easy instructions, correct time frame it took me to build it, smooth sliding drawers, etc. Someone wrote that" they wouldn't put heavy textbooks in it" and I think that was great advice (I wasn't planning on that but, good to know). I rearrange furniture all the time in my house BUT I would not dare take this bed apart. Because its composite and not real wood, taking it apart would strip all the holes and render this purchase defunct.

this product is poorly made. i read some more reviews and actually tried to cancel my order before it was shipped but wasn't able to. i tried to make best of it and prepared to have a professional with tools assemble it the particle board broke as i was unpacking it. additionally the nuts are a touch too loose for the size of screw and look more decorative than functional in some cases. and the slats are flimsy - one of the connector pieces is unstable as the particle board pre-drilled hole broke off. poor quality but i guess for the money it is to be expected.

The bed is pretty good for the price. It's a bit hard to assemble, but I did it all by myself. Overall a good bed.

I love the 6 large drawers. I have a small bedroom (8'x10') and this bed is perfect. The only problem is with the dark espresso color. The finish seems to scratch and chip easy and I wish the mfgr had enclosed a color crayon to cover the scratches.
It looked great on the web... but once it got here it was a nightmare. Damaged pieces, poor quality and just awful fit and finish. It's not really what I had hoped for. The storage doors will be uneven against the bed unless the bed is JUST right. Had the wood break at the screws twice. Drawers don't move smoothly. If I hadn't bought it as an occasional use bed, I would have tossed it by now.
I bought this bed about 9 months ago for my 14 yr old son. The supports that connect the sides together and attach the drawer slides are already falling apart. I'll have to go in and retro fit the crossboards with plywood. One drawer hardly opens at all and you can't move the bed at all unless you have someone for each corner, or you do more damage to it.
I bought this for my 17 yr. old daughter last December.... she wanted a bigger bed.... and while I love the way it looks, it didn't hold up the way I had envisioned. The drawers are not made all that well, and one broke..(I don't know if my daughter is too rough with the opening and closing of the drawer?) I had to use gorilla glue to put it back together. But I love the color and my daughter also loves the way it looks, but we wish the drawers were made better. There is plenty of storage available and iIt looks great when the drawers are closed. The bed is now up against one wall, so the broken drawer is not noticealbe... otherwise, it's a nice bed. I probably should have just ordered a bed with higher legs (like the one I ordered) because then you can just put clothing bins underneath and not have to worry about drawers... The structure of the bed iteself is nice... If it wasn't for the broken drawer, I'd have given it a 5... : ) We also purchased the memory foam mattress to go with it and my daughter loves it.. : )
Honestly, have you seen a better platform bed for the price? Needed something small and compact, take up no more room than my old bed. Needed extra storage space, so the six neat drawers at the bottom took care of that. I reinforced this with memory foam mattress and topper, so things get a little dreamy around here. Makes my room look so stylish and modern it's a pleasure to come home and fall on it. I love the dark wood finish, it corresponds to eveyrthing in the room, easy to clean. This just a neat little full- sized platform bed, very study and durable. Good for extra guest sleeping over, easy to make up , casual bedding-- just throw nice coverlet over it !
solid workmanship, like the way it looks, love the drawers. in my studio apartment, the extra storage is fantastic. only complaint is that all of the exposed edges are unfortunately square - am contemplating taking a sander to the edges along the top as they are sharp enough to be uncomfortable when sitting on the edge of the bed with my shallow mattress.
First, know that this is shipped in three(3) boxes. We received one box, 30x30x4" labeled box 1 of 1. All it contained was the storage drawers. I tried to use the email customer service but had a hard time communicating the problem - they kept requesting I give them parts numbers for the missing pieces. (we had no instructions either). I finally called on the phone and it was taken care of fairly quickly. They told me they would re-ship the entire bed, and I could just dispose of the extra drawer pieces. Thank heavens we had extra pieces because the drawer sides tended to split and break so we ended up mixing & matching from both shipments. Also - the first set of drawers had particle board backs and the second had the light-weight wood that matched the sides of the drawers. I thought it was very odd that different shipments had different materials. Once assembled the bed looks good & functions well. I like that it offers storage without taking up much more room than just a mattress/ box spring. It doesn't make the room look smaller either, and my 6 year old is very happy with his new bed.
I have had this bed for two years. Looks great. Drawers work great. No problems. Nothing broken. Missing one bolt when assembling but overstock shipped to me quickly!Only one issue is the boards that supports mattress shift a lot... nothing broken but it is annoying!
When we found this bed on overstock.com , it was love at first sight. We wanted something that has lots of drawers for my daughter. Since we live in an apartment, the bed was a space saver. Though it took us couple of hours to assemble (with my daughter) but it was worth it. The materials were all sturdy and easy to assemble. Now, my daughter loves sleeping in it. I will recommend this bed for everybody.
All of the pieces arrived in great condition, with no breaks, scratches,etc... The bed arrived about 3 to 5 days after I ordered it, which surprised me. It takes a great deal of time to put together, so I'd recommend you wait 'till you have a morning or afternoon free. Follow the manufacturers recommendations, when it comes to assembly the drawers; use a screwdriver and not a drill. I'd also recommend using a screwdriver, when putting together the top of the head-board, as it's easy to drill to far with an electric drill, which my husband found out the hard way. Overall, I was very impressed with this bed. I fits perfect into my small room, and provides excellent storage space. The drawers were a bit smaller than I expected, and the bottoms are not made to hold heavy objects. Still it works great for visitors, as my mother and father-in law noted. I'd definitely recommend this bed to my friends.
