The bed looks great in our room and I am very happy with the overall appearance; however, in the daylight, when the sun shines in my room just so, you can see a thin layer of dust ALWAYS. I will dust the bed in the moment and the dust comes right back. Thankfully, I did not purchase the matching dresser. I think I will go a different route for the rest of my bedroom furnishings because I don't like to see the dust. This is really a minor issue, especially since the light has to be just right to notice it. The bigger issue is the footboard. It sticks out a good inch beyond the bedframe. I was aware of this and was determined to not run into it; however, one day, I turned from the closet and headed out of the room at a rapid pace and rammed my leg just above my knee into the corner of the frame. Let's just say, it nearly took me down and I leaned against the wall for a couple of minutes crying out in agony. That's been 3 weeks ago and the bruise is still present. So, beware if you purchase this bed. I also have a 4 year old and I'm always playing interference so she does not run into the bed. With that said, I am happy with the overall purchase, but if I could go back, I might choose soemthing different.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fairly easy to put together. There was one screw that would not go all the way in, but my husband made it work. The bed was really squeaky the fist week, but it has gotten better. It seems sturdy. There are a few blemishes in the finish, but aren't that obvious, but they do bug me a bit because I know they are there; however, it wasn't enough to make me go through the hassle of returning.
Perhaps I received a defective bed. As soon as I sat in the corner of the bed, the wood broke off.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? True to color described
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor quality
after about 3 months, the side rails completely gave way because the 3/4" x 3/4" particle board rail was held on with wood glue and screws that bit in less than 1/4". I have a homemade box spring so I simply used my own screws to screw the box spring directly to the side rails, but for the ~$*** I paid, that should never had happened. Overstock did promptly send new side rails but I like my fix so much, I still haven't changed them.
When I opened the boxes to put it together everything looked fine. When we started to put the headboard together I noticed a crack on the wood on the bottom right hand corner that would easily break off it hit the wrong way. I was extremely disappointed as I was all ready to set up this bed! I called customer service and they are SUPER NICE and amazing at getting things done. I put in a request for a new headboard (on Friday) and on Thursday it was shipped out. Although it took 2 weeks to get here the new headboard was wrapped up much better and in great condition. It was a pretty easy set up and I love the way it looks and makes my room feel whole. One last thing, I noticed before I set up the bed the second time they gave me two RIGHT legs to attach to the headboard instead of a LEFT and RIGHT. I almost had a fit but luckily the new headboard came with the legs so I had a spare left one to use. PHEW. Overall I'd give OVERSTOCK a 3 out of 5 for their silly mistakes but I would give their customer services a 5 out of 5 as they were ALWAYS so helpful!
