I am thrilled with my new bed. As a recent divorcee, I wanted to completely change my bedroom. I did it all on Overstock! I liked everything but this bed was the BEST. It's beatutiful-better looking than the picture. It is so solid and sturdy two 500 pounders could sleep on it!!This bed looks like it will last a lifetime and be passed down to my children. Thanks!!
I put this bed together in a little less than an hour and am mostly pleased with it! I called it "not ideal" in the title, because while the design is beautiful, the proportional height was not right for my existing mattress. It is quite solid when put together as instructed - no doubt! But for my little 3" boxspring and my 6" mattress, I felt like I was crawling into a kiddie bed whose head- and footboards towered over me! :( Also, leaves very little clearance for under-bed storage. Luckily, I've got a bit of engineering know-how, and I was able to make some adjustments that make it a 5-star bed now that I'm done with it. :) First of all, if you don't have a boxspring, there's no way to put just a mattress on this frame. There are only four quarter-inch thin metal slats on top of the rails, so even a roll-out set of slats wouldn't do ya. Secondly, there are barely 6" of clearance under these rails, so you can forget about storing much of anything under it without some risers or some adjustments. Knowing this before I purchased the bed was helpful, and I purchased it anyway. I loved the design, the price, and I got free shipping, so you can't beat that kind of a deal with a stick! I built my own boxspring platform with about $50 of lumber, I drilled new holes in the bedposts that are 3" higher than the pre-manufactured holes, and replaced the center post supports of the slats with 4x4 posts to length, so my 14" bedskirt now skims the floor as it should. With the bed made and pillows propped up, the tops of the pillows come up almost to the top rail of the headboard, so it looks better proportionately, like in the website picture. Also, now that I have 9" of clearance underneath, I can easily fit a few storage boxes with shoes, off-season clothes, etc.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Was better described in customer comments who said "LOOKS nearly black"; it's actually a very burnished bronze color with an orange-peel finish
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. SOLID! Bed frame rails are a little low - clearly this bed is meant for someone with a very tall mattress set and lots of padding/pillows
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The site description was decent, but the customer reviews told the full story -- read carefully and use your common sense filter! ;)
I bought this bed as a starter bed for my boyfriend and I. It is very sturdy and seems like it should last us a very long time! Overstock was great as we purchased the wrong size at first. But the "O" sent us the correct size and fully refunded our money as soon as they received the wrong one back! Lovvveee them!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? matched
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the rods were a bit heavy, but to me that was a good sign that they are sturdy.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? VERY
I love this new bed, so sturdy and pretty. The only thing is it is brown colored, and so incredibly low to ground I had to buy box spring for it. It literally is only 3inches off floor and I was hoping to just use memory foam mattress.
I purchased this bed for my great niece who is now a tween. She loves it! We all love it. The entire bed is sturdy and high quality. It is easy to assemble and arrived right on time. 100% satisfied. I recommend it anyone. She will have this bed the rest of her life passing it down to her children. It's beautiful!
This wasn't my first choice or the style I'll eventually get but on a tight budget it fulfills the job and looks nice.. it wasnt too hard to put together alone but definitely would have been easier with another person.. overall I'm happy.. it's a nice starter bed for my full sized mattress... my next bed will be a full set for a queen but this all serves the right purpose for the time being. The only issue is there is a decent sized gap from the foot of my bed to the foot board... may get creative to fix that.. Any ideas? :-)
Loved this bed..it looks great. Set up easy and I was alone setting it up..it is very sturdy..although they did not send all of the correct bolts so I had to go out to buy some different ones for the peg supports on the bottom. Would recommend great bed for this price!
This is a great value. We decided we would choose a metal bed frame for our daughters apartment because it is easy to move around if she decides to change locations. This is easy to assemble and looks great. The only issue is that if you are tall, you can easily get your feet tangled in the bottom. She is not tall so it works well for her.
