this took forever to come and when it came i was not thrilled. It looks great but i expected the wood to be of a finer quality. if you want something not too expensive this is ok but if i was not in such a rush i wouldve chose something else.
We purchased this bed for my 6'1 and 275lb+ son. We were a little reluctant about getting it because we wasn't sure if this bed would hold him. I'm glad that we did buy this bed because it looks really nice and only took my husband about 4.5 hours to put it together. It may take half the amount of time if 2 people were assembling it but my husband didn't want any help. Again this is a great bed for the price and is being used to replace my sons bed & dresser so I have no complaints.
Very difficult to assemble although it looks nice after the work is done. The numbers of the assembling parts (screws, nails...) are exactly same as required for most parts, but in then end I found I need one more screw for the drawer. It will be better if they could put a little more (screws, nails) just in case.
so, i had no idea what i was getting into when i had to put this bed together. do NOT order this bed if you don't have an electric screwdriver!however, now that the bed is set up it looks really nice, the drawers slide great and i'm really pleased. could i have maybe found an easier bed to set up with comparable features for a comparable price? maybe... do i regret the purchase? no.oh, and mine had some nicks and scratches on the head and foot boards too, but nothing too bad.
The bed is great. It looks great and the drawers are a great size! The bed does take awhile to put together, definitely plan on 2 people to make it easy. It took us about 1 hour 50 minutes for the bed and then with just one person on the drawers took about 50 minutes. I will say the wood for the drawers wasn't the strongest, so be careful with an electric screw driver. It's a great bed though and I'm so glad I bought it!
Now that this bed is assembled, it is lovely. The drawers slide easily, and I love the color. .... But..... When I first got the boxes (comes in 3), the box with the headboard, footboard, and "inner gables" (where the drawers attach inside to slide in and out)) - was packed incorrectly and all the pieces were split in half. After 2 months and 3 or 4 attempts to resend the broken pieces (with many errors in delivery and communication with the PrePac warehouse) , I FINALLY got all needed pieces... Now the bed is together, but I have boxes and pieces of bed all over my tiny apartment. Good bed if you can find a discount, and Overstock's customer service was great, dispite the warehouse's mistakes. Just make sure you stay on top of tracking delivery and communicating with Overstock - they compensated me for my frustration and were very professional.
I received my bed and put it together in no time. Overall, it looks good and has stood up to my 5 year old!! I found the drawers much more difficult to put together. Several of the sides were cracked or bowed. I had to call and order more, so my bed still sits without drawers. If they are off even slightly, they do not slide well!
I took my time putting the product together which me about 6 hours. All I used was a screw driver. The instructions were fairly simply. I had the product for a month and so far it is in great condition and pretty sturdy. I hope it stays that way. I would recommend this product to anyone trying to get a great deal and save money. You can't beat it!
This was a great experience (my first time using Overstock.com). The bed was even better than pictured and the best part was that all the pieces and hardware were there and everything fit perfectly/lined up. The only thing I would have changed is that despite me calling ahead to avoid this, it was delivered to my home early when I was out of town, but this was UPS oversight.
I bought two beds for my sons. They look great and are wonderful for keeping bedrooms in order . My sons assembled both beds. It took them about 3 to 4 hours to assemble the first one and 1 to 2 hours the second one. It is a lot of work but it is all worthy.
I've had the product for 3 months, yes the color is not super dark, without a headboard i find my head falling back, but the product is sturdy, the height is nice. many of the other options were too low. I've had to push/pull it a little to get the doors to be flush, I think it looks great and gives me the needed storage. the price is great. I did scrap the top of one of the drawers with my fingernails and the laminate scraped off but its not noticable.
