It took about 4 weeks to receive this bed, but once delivery was scheduled, it came quickly. I was not happy with the shipping company though, they delivered the bed in boxes strapped to a huge wooden palette. They refused to let my husband remove the boxes and take the palette back with them, so now we've got it stashed in our garage as we try to figure out how to get rid of it. The headboard, footboard and side rails look nice and are very solid, however the slats that hold the mattress are very thin and not at all strong. Two of them actually snapped a few weeks into using the bed, and my husband had to replace them with much stronger pieces of wood. Now the bed feels much more solid, but it would have been nice if the slats had been made with higher quality wood. I'd recommend the bed because it does look nice, but I'd caution others that they may have to do something to reinforce the slats if they choose to buy this bed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is an off white, very close to what was pictured on the website.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is ok, not great.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, however it would have been nice if it included mattress/box spring specs. I didn't know if I could use it with just a mattress so I had to inquire with Overstock to find out.
This bed is charming. We purchaased last December for Christmas. Love the design. The bed is for my tween and the design will work as she gets older. I agree with the other reviewer in that the headboard and footboard seem to be built well but the slats that hold the mattress are very flimsy. Not of the same quality as the rest of the bed. Overall we've been happy but am waiting for the slats to break any day.
I love love love this bed. The headboard is just what I was looking for. A very cottage, summer feel. It is an off white, almost creamy. I also bought the dresser, side table and the chest. It looks so beautiful with my new wood floors. So happy
