My son loves his new bed!! BUT... If it wasn't for the help of a handy neighbor and his son it would still be in pieces on the floor. Don't use the directions, find someone who is handy and has common sense. We reinforced the drawers with the help of a commercial staple gun so they wouldn't fall apart. Overall the look of the bed is great, my son is happy, and so am I.
Shipping was prompt. One of the boxes was damaged, but only on the outside due to the excellent packaging. The instructions were easy to follow and large enough for this seniors eyes. All the good quality hardware was there & a little more. A screw gun definitely speeds the process, and you'll want an allen bit as well. I cut the one supplied & chucked it.

Was very nervous about ordering this as so many previous reviews expressed issues with assembly. We had absolutely no trouble putting it together. The written directions were perfect. They only time we made a mistake was when we thought we knew what to do next, and didn't follow the directions word for word. Great style, drawers slide smoothly. Bed takes up a minimal amount of space, so perfect for small rooms. Allow 2 weeks for delivery.
After 5 years, all of the bottoms of the drawers have fallen out and have to be pushed back up. While you are putting this together it would be a great idea to add some glue to the sides of the shelves where they fit in. Other than that, it has held up pretty well. I got this specifically for my toddler's room. We have radiant heat and I wanted to make sure the bed had a little gap between bed and floor to allow for heat to escape. For that purpose I would of went with a bed with a greater distance.
This is an excellent first child's bed. Comes with plenty of storage. It was shipped in two boxes and many pieces, also a few pieces were slightly damaged, nothing huge. This is a great color for either a girl or boy and matches other dark wood pieces.
Living in a retirement apartment, this downsized bed gave me more space, more attractiveness, more function. I put it together myself, with no problems. I'm 74, and had major right hand surgery with finger tendon replacement and existing osteoarthritis. Still made it just fine! All my neighbors know how I feel about Overstock. Also have the drop leaf small dining table. Overstock has made my apt. home!!!!
The bed looks nice and is a low platform for a young child - my 4 year old son. He likes the drawers but i think i will add handles because he's having a little bit of a hard time pulling them out. Now complete, the bed looks decent, but it was a nightmare to assemble. Several of the holes for the screws were not drilled deep enough and required several trial and error extra adjustments. This discovery and resolution added an hour to the assembly time. :-(

The bed is a really sturdy product. My only complaint is the way the head and foot of the bed are fastened to the sides. The "fasteners" that were used did not all work the same. Some went in quite smoothly, but others were very problematic. I managed to get it together, but I'm very disappointed with the heads sticking out.
