This bed is MDF!!!! NOT "SOLID WOOD". Takes hours of assembly, even with drill and two adept people working. Had the bed less than one year and it has already FALLEN APART, my husband and I are fairly physically fit, and perhaps even less than what I would guess is about average weight for queen bed use. I love Overstock.com and I almost NEVER leave a bad review, but this product is truly lacking. I was so excited to have the extra storage space, but this is hands down the worst product I have ever purchased. I would absolutely recommend looking for a different bed.
I was impressed that it's solid wood. Only the shelf bottoms are particle board. The assembly directions were clear. It did take a total of about 5-1/2 hours. We did it in stages. Assembled the drawers and attached the hardware first. Then the next day assembled the rest of the platform. I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I'm able to put into one drawer.
Bought this as a guest bed...and it's perfect for that. Read all of the reviews on here before purchasing, so set my expectations off of them. Drawers are cheap although I had no problems with alignment and none of them broke.
As far as difficulty assembling, I can honestly say, it wasn't hard. Time consuming, yes, but not difficult. If you have any mechanical aptitude whatsoever, you won't have a problem. I can say this with confidence because mine came with no instructions. Go figure.
This product came in four well-packaged boxes, the heaviest being 120 lbs, so you might need help getting it into the house. The bed went together pretty easily in about 3 hours (with two people working on it). Some of the drawer panels can be brittle so handle them gingerly until all four walls are in place (then they are a lot more solid). Finish is okay for this price, but if you want something that looks like real wood, you'll have to pay more elsewhere. We've only had this product for one week, so I can't speak to how long it will last... hopefully a long time because this is a really heavy item which will likely be tough to dismantle and throw out!
18 months later and we still have a nonfunctional bed. It sits in pieces as we go back and forth sending parts lists and photos of the bed. The bed was functionally useful for four months and then the fasteners pulled from the particle board frame. It is now disassembled in a pile on our loft. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY. Overstock said we have to work with the company and we are trying...shame on you people. This was a huge purchase for our family.
Don't buy unless you plan on doing nothing but sleeping as stiff as a board. Bed does not tolerate movement at all. We have had this bed less than three months and it is already falling apart to the point where we will be throwing it out because it would cost more than it is worth to reinforce it.
One of the inner gables was warped so when the bed was put together the upper stabilizer pushed out and the drawers would not fit. Took almost 3 days to put it together only to find out that the drawers will not fit flush to the stabilizer. The gables are made of pressed board so that if you put in the screw once you better not have to take it out or the pressed board crumbles.Very poor materials.
We purchased this bed just about 3 years ago and it has now cracked irreparably at the footboard and is nearing collapse. I know cheap furniture doesn't last forever but COME ON. An almost $600 piece should last longer than 3 years. It didn't fit together all that nicely when we got it, but I thought no big deal, it's not going to be perfect for that price. It hasn't seen anything but normal wear and tear and the particle board is just collapsing at this point. Run run run in the other direction, do not buy!!!
I ordered this to be sent ahead where we were moving so we would have a bed when we got to our new house. Thankfully our son was there to put it all together and, as he said "the 1,250 drawers!" Maybe an exaggeration on his part, but our room is very small so having the drawers eliminates the need for any other furniture in the room. Only issue is it is REALLY HIGH off the floor. But our dog can jump up there. Thank goodness! But I was a little worried about us two senior citizens. I ended up putting a little one foot high step stool by my side just so I don't have to stretch too much. But we do love it and have a gel mattress on it and it sleeps great. We had concerns going with a queen after 30 years of a king, but working out okay. Good, solid bed. Highly recommend. If hight worries you, just go with the one with fewer drawers.
Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, this item is not available in king size on our site. We apologize. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

Some of the drawers do not align properly. It looks as though everything is level, but then they do not slide in evenly leaving a gap on the right side. Any advice?ccr1124 on Mar 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm not sure what would cause this, but if you require additional assistance please contact customer service.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 7, 2012
