I previously had a daybed w/trundle in our guest room--too much trouble and took up too much room when in use. I purchased this bed to use in that room which is rather small and it's absolutely perfect! The frame is sturdy, but not overpowering in design, and does not give the appearance that the bed is taking up the whole room! I ordered the Black Walnut color which is not quite the same as the photo in the listing. I would call it a medium grayish-brown; not as deep as black, of course, but darker than what the Butter Pecan would be. The style of the bed gives the appearance of an old iron bed. I put a quilt on it with matching shams and then hung lace curtains--it's the old-fashioned look I love!When assembling, be absolutely sure that you have the pre-drilled holes on the bottom parts of the headboard facing directly out, not at all to either side, and be sure you have it lined up correctly before inserting the bottom pieces into the top pieces completely--they are almost impossible to move once they're in there. It took my husband and I to assemble this bed; it would be very difficult for only one person. Overall, it's a wonderful bed for the money! We had been searching locally for quite some time and never did find a bed this low in price--it's a good deal!
This bed exceeded my expectations. I bought it for a guest bedroom so it was also the right price. It's a versatile bed and very attractive.

This arrived quickly, less than time specified, in a pristine box. When I opened it, I thought I had two footboards. Customer Service rep was very helpful. He had purchased a similar bed and said the headboard leg extensions are in the small box of extra components. Sure enough, there they were. Bed was easy to assemble, looks great, and I am well pleased.

Shipping was fast as usual from overstock...bed was packed great with no problems in shipment. Bought in the darker color for dughters room and we both love it! Just as described, couldn't be happier! Have seen the same bed for double the price in high end children's cataloges. Super happy with this purchase!

I bought this bed in the black walnut for my guest room. The color blends well with the dark oiled bronze elements throughout my home. I'm very impressed with it's sturdy construction. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition in two easy to manage boxes. The instructions were simple and the bed was easy to assemble.
I made the decision to purchase this bed in the pecan finish based on the reviews I read. I am absolutely thrilled with the bed. It arrived days after I ordered it in perfect condition. It goes great with my shabby chic decor'. It's sturdy and easy to assemble. I love it and couldn't be more pleased.
The bed arrived in fairly quick time. That was impressive. I was also impressed by the very low cost of shipping (it cost less to ship than books I have purchased from a well-know book supplier). The bed itself is very nice and pretty much what I was hoping for. I will definitely shop with Overstock again, and will recommend it to friends.
We ordered the butter colored (tan) bed frame which arrived promptly. The bed frame is a sturdy metal which is nice; however, the color appears "cheap" looking close up. It has swirls of brownish gold paint throughout that doesn't give it a true antiquish finish. The frame was easy to assemble. We liked the style of both the headboard and footboard just wished the color was better.
Solid craftsmanship and old world quality is in this bed. The heavy bed frame is freestanding as well as self supporting and the beautiful decorative ends are bolted on to it. The assembled bed is extremely strong as it has eight legs! four hidden under and the four corner posts. The color of the bed is much warmer and deeper than the photo shows and could go great with any decor. This bed is a great choice.
I ordered this bed on a Friday and received it on the following Thursday. It arrived in just two boxes: one flat and tall containing the head board and foot board, and one long box containing the actual bed frame. Both boxes were very easy to carry. The actual frame has 3 different size settings so if you need to use it in the future on a bed smaller or larger than full you can, (without the head and foot boards). It was very easy to put together and fit together solidly using just the included allen wrench, screws and washers. The only slight complaint I would have was that the color (I chose the walnut) seemed much lighter than the photograph online and was more of a dusty matte dull brown. I do like the color, it just wasn't as dark and not as close to black as the picture suggests.Overall a great product. It's in line with or cheaper than other bed frames out there, and looks great!
The bed is nice. My only observations are: It is lower than what I thought and the black walnut color description is not representative of the photo. In my case I was happy for that as I did not want silvery looking color, I was hoping for darker and took a gamble based on the color name. The bed is not overly heavy but is very sturdy. It's a great value for the money.
I'm very happy with the Fenton (I ordered it in Butter Pecan). It has a cool "shabby chic" thing going on that fits in great with my decor.Shipping was great too - I ordered the bed on a Monday and it arrived by Friday.I will say that it definitely helped to have two people work on the assembly as the headboard was a bit unwieldly until we had it secured to the underlying frame.All-in-all I'm pleased with this purchase - great for obtaining a cute bedroom on a budget!
