The package arrived complete with all the pieces, including all fasteners and hardware, undamaged in two boxes. They were HEAVY. I opened the boxes and brought the pieces up the stairs one or two at a time, as I needed them, and assembled the frame. All the holes were where they were supposed to be and all the pieces lined up the way they were meant to.
However, the assembly procedure is less than perfect. After all the slats are in its channel on one side, it is ‘challenging’, to say the least, to put the slats in the channel on the other side. As you would fit one slat in, another would fall out. Eventually I used duct tape to hold the slats in place in the first channel so they stayed put, while I maneuvered the other end of the slats in the other channel. Additionally, I taped a cardboard ‘lip’ under the second slat channel to prevent the slats from falling down out of place as I maneuvered them into the channel and secured the end board.
This problem could be eliminated if the bottom flange of the slat channels were wider so the slats would not fall out while one attempted to assemble the bed.
I do wish the drawers were longer. They go just over half way into the width of the bed, not all the way. It’s a shame to have that space unusable.
Another design issue is the slats run the ‘wrong way’. Typically on a platform bed they would run across the width of the bed to better accommodate the weight of different areas of the sleeper, not down its length. I’m sleeping (very well thank you) on a 14” thick mattress so it doesn’t seem to be an issue for me. It you’re using a 4” foam, you may have a different experience.
Overall, not withstanding the above, I’m happy with this purchase and WOULD buy it again.I wish it had been available in a 'natural' or light colored wood.
I was a little apprehensive since the bed is mostly made of MDF/particle wood, but once we put it together and examined all the parts, it is very nicely constructed and a very good quality. The drawers are smooth and made of pine with metal brackets. We got the bed in espresso for our teenage son; it looks great and provides lots of storage.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? excellent
Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent, better than expected, since much of it is particle wood/MDF
How accurate was the on site description of the product? excellent
Here's the thing, it took my husband 4 hrs to put both beds together (we ordered 2 xl's). Its packaged well and the directions are 100% accurate, it just takes time and patience. My husband is great with these things and said it would have been quicker had he had someone to help him hold pieces together while he put it together. The drawers are quite nice. Don't attempt to assemble without the power screwdriver. I was impressed with these beds!

I am more than satisfied for the price and quality of this bed. I ordered it for my spare bedroom for when my teenage grandson stays over. Very sturdy and wider twin extra long bed. No need for a separate dresser because of the three spacious drawers in the platform Took my grandson and me about 3 hours to assemble. Neither of us had ever assembled something lke this before. NOTE: After the drawers are assembled and inserted and they seem not to close tight enough at one end or another adjust the bed frame. Most likely the top of the frame is not lined up exactly with the bottom of the frame. All screws must be screwed in straight or drawers won't slide easily.
Very easy to assemble, fits perfectly in my apartment. The espresso finish is subtle and goes well in practically any room. I would definitely recommend this product. The drawers are great for storage when space is limited!
We are so incredibly pleased with the style, quality and ease of assembly of this product. It seems that so many pieces like this are made solely of particle board, but this frame and the drawers is made of real wood and VERY sturdy composite materials. My husband and I were able to put it together in under 2 hours and it looks great! The drawers slide easily and the runners aren't the usual flimsy plastic runners-- they're real metal! We feel like we received the deal of the century on this product :D
This bed may look good on the screen but it is really small and cheap looking. Having to put it together was a bear! Two hands and two people. My fingers still hurt from having to hold one side of the screw while turning the other side. Not fun at all.
What is the size of the area under the bed with no drawers installed? Thank you.945kitty on Aug 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello 945kitty, each drawer is 5 inches high x 23.25 inches wide x 18 inches deep. Without the drawers that space would be empty. We don't have any additional dimensions for the area underneath the bed. Thank you for shopping with us! Amandaoverstockcustomercare2 on Aug 20, 2014
Hello azmomma3, There is actually three drawers on each side. We're sorry for the confusion. The alternate photos show the other side. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.

Can the drawers be put on either side of the bed depending on which side is against a wall?pibby321 on Jan 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us pibby321. You can have the drawer on either side of the bed. The head and foot board are the same so the user just needs to turn the bed so the drawers are on the desired side. Please let me know if you have any other questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 4, 2014
Hello, gizzmo88. Hope your day is going well. The mattress is sold separately. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.
