I was very worried about purchasing a bed online, but was so happy I chose this one! Delivery of this bed took some time, but ease of assembly made up for the late shipping. It took us less than half an hour to put the bed together; all of the parts slid nicely into place. It would have been relatively simple for one person to do it alone as well. I would highly recommend, however, that you place a bunky board on the slats before you place your mattress on top. These slats are set rather wide apart, and alone do not offer enough support for the mattress. I took quick measurements, ran over to the lumber yard and had them cut a couple of pieces of plywood for me. I placed the plywood on the slats, put the mattress on the plywood (make sure you cover the plywood with cloth or a blanket to protect your mattress) and now have an extremely solid and comfy bed! The bed itself is beautiful and rustic; I purchased it for our guest room and will be proud to accommodate friends and family. It definitely is darker than it shows on the website, but this did not cause a real problem for me.
As others said, color is darker, which I was fine with. I knew the height of the headboard was 44", which was on the low side for my taste, but went with it anyway. I used a low profile box spring. A full size would definitely leave little headboard to show, especially when made with pillow. That being said, the picture is misleading in how much headboard shows, IN MY OPINION. I debated on 3 stars, but so far no issues with quality and like I said, I knew the above info before I ordered bed.
Absolutely gorgeous. Truly beautiful and a great value. Super heavy, though. And it is low, low, low to the ground. Very little clearance underneath. We have it over wood floors and can get a Swiffer underneath only. No vacuum would fit.
This bed is so well made. It is east to assemble, although very heavy. We ordered the King size. It came with an extra support bar with two extra feet in the center to better support the King sized bed. The under box spring rails were even beautiful and they had exact places to be set and they do not move. My only issue is the color. It is sooooo much darker than the picture, but other reviewers stated that so I was prepared, just not for that dark. However, it still works with our room and we are good with it. It was shipped and packaged beautifully with no issues.
