Everything keeps breaking, only 5 months later! I should have been more diligent in reading the description of this bed and have known not to buy anything made of "engineered wood." The main headboard piece was damaged in shipping, appeared to have some kind of papery/particle board finish on it. Overstock customer care sent a new one, which was fine. Assembly was not fun. Things didn't exactly fit together and line up well - parts were hard to work with. Bed didn't feel too sturdy. The frame did not hug the box spring - frame was not square. Do not attempt to shift the position of this bed AFTER you put the mattress on. The 3 little support legs holding up the mattress support boards will break very easily. And the support boards will break in half since legs are gone and have ripped out the connecting hardware. Just yesterday, the left frame piece broke at the hardware - splitting lengthwise in two - after my husband and I sat on one side together (about 300 lbs between the two of us). So now we have books propping up the mattress. Great looking, piece of **** bed..
I must say, I was pleasantly surprised how quick my canopy bed was shipped. (I received it 2 days after I ordered it.) When it arrived ,it came in 4 separate boxes, and was extremely easy to put together. Ive been searching for the perfect bed for some time now, and the price was excellent. I am extremely happy with my purchase and will recommend to my friends and family! Thanks!
Nice bed not the best quality. I do recommend it as it is sturdy and will accent almost any style. I paid around $500 and feel it is good for the price. I have owned beds from West Elm and cost much more with the same quality. Spend your money on a quality mattress!!!
Sturdy and relatively easy to assemble for two. I would have pulled out my hair, alone! Be careful to keep each box's parts located with that particular box's instructions, or you will do a lot of head scratching. Tightening all of those bolts are going to take you a long time with the included tools. A 13mm box-end wrench will make your life easier on the inset nuts and washers. If you have arthritis, be prepared to take finger rest breaks! Most important: loosely assemble first and tighten fasteners afterward, or you will go crazy thinking they didn't drill the holes right!
I ordered the queen size Bedford Canopy Bed for my birthday October 2014 and I love it! If you're obsessed with the Potterybarn equivalent of this bed the Bedford from Overstock is a great alternate at a fraction of the cost. Be warned, assembly is required. It literally came in pieces in three heavy boxes. I put it together by myself but having someone give you a hand would make the process go a lot faster. Great bed for a great price.
Loved the look of the furniture. Received as scheduled. My husband put the headboard and footboard together and you could see though cracks between the pieces of the headboard and footboard after tightened. The top rail of the footboard had a 6 inch zigzag joint showing through the paint. We were still going to keep it though I was unhappy with it. But then when he tightened the screw that connected the footboard together, it cracked the whole footboard. We returned for a refund. It was such a pain to repack all in the 4 boxes and take back to UPS. What a waste of time!
Super fast shipping. Product came with minor scratches but the wood was so dark you don't notice them. The price is the lowest I could find and their customer service department replied within hours of being emailed and resolved all of my concerns! Very please with this purchase!!
The bed is beautiful and seems to be quite sturdy. I definitely recommend having two people to put it together - it will be much easier to line everything up. At the very least, there should be two people when attaching the side rails to the headboard and footboard. The only reason I am not giving 5 Stars is because the description is misleading when it claims, "No box spring necessary". This may be true if you have a regular mattress; however, if you have a foam mattress, you absolutely need a box spring! There's no getting around it. Luckily, box springs are not outrageously expensive. It's just a shame that after spending hours putting the bed together, we now have to wait for a box spring to arrive before we can enjoy it.
