Delivery was great. Putting it together went well, with the help of 3 total helpers. The bed has received many compliments. Before I bought it, I questioned whether the trundle and drawers could come out of the opposite side that it was displayed. The response was no, it couldn't go out the other side. Well, the correct answer is yes. Yes, the trundle and drawers can be put in on either side; there is no track that is attached to the bed to make it go in and out only on one side. I bought this bed for our soon-to-be 3 year old and I hope it will last until college and beyond. It has a minor knick on it, but it is on the inside where no one will ever know (except me). I highly recommend this bed.
Had a carpenter friend put it together, took the experienced guy almost 4 hours to put together, nice set up, had to make a few alterations where the boards were not cut correctly to fit, adjustments were easy for him, wouldn't have been for me!
We were almost done assembling this bed and realized they gave me 9 pieces of "M's" and no "N's". The parts are marked in letters. I am hoping customer service can get my missing pieces vs having me return it all which if I do that then I will not want it. Color is dark and some parts were real wood and filler parts were compressed wood. Over all its a great look and compare to what I see out there. If you put a very think full mattress on top it will almost reach the footboard. I think a thinner mattress will not take away the footboard and heard board character of the bed. I cant wait to use it and hoping the parts will arrive soon!
Love the espresso color! Our 9" twin size ************ mattress fits fine in the trundle too. My handy husband was able to reverse the way the trundle faced. He also had to change a couple parts that came in the wrong direction :( we got an overstock, full mattress for it. The bed sits high, which is nice. Came w a lot of parts, so good thing my husband is handy! Our son loves it! I couldn't find anything this nice in the stores. Hopefully we can find a matching nightstand..
The bed is just what I expected. To person for ease of assembly but all pieces were there and everything went together correctly. Our twin mattress that we use for the trundle was a thicker style and does not fit under the bed correctly. We put little lifters under the legs of the bed and everything works perfectly. Very happy with their purchase
I was so skeptical to order this large purchase on line. In fact, I had buyers remorse and doubted the purchase. THEN it was delivered ALL together. NO problems, exactly what I thought it should be. Whew! It did take about 3 hours to put it together. The hardest part was the bottom 3 drawers. It took some engineering to get the bottom of the drawers to fit properly but eventually (by the 3rd one) I got the hang of it.
Delivery was awesome- company called to schedule, was on time, and put the pallet in my garage. Everything was packaged well and nothing was damaged or scratched. All of the parts were there. It took my 14 year old daughter and me (the mom) about 3 hours to put together. You need a drill or electric screw driver. The drawers were not easy to put together and have the least "quality" to them- cheap wood inside. Something that was unexpected is that the frame screws together. There are no brackets that slide into headboard and footboard slots, so taking this bed apart is more of a chore. The bed is very high if you have a pillow top mattress, but my teenage daughter loves the bed. Color is the same as pictured. I am hoping it last her through college, but if not, it will be a beautiful guest bedroom bed when she flies the coop.
Overstock is being very good about returning and reshipping, but I have had to return it twice due to gashes and broken peices when unpacked. Currently waiting for the second shipments to be picked up and a third shipment to be sent. Actual bed is very nice if it were delivered in-tact.
