This bed came in many parts. A bit overwhelming at first. None of the parts were numbered or labeled in anyway, which made it more time consuming to put together. There were several parts that were supposed to be pre drilled and were not. So we drilled the holes ourselves. One of the drawers was not drilled for the cam locks, so we had to order the parts from the company. It was a hassle. They wanted a scan of the reciept and pictures of the parts that were to be replaced. It took almost 2 weeks to get the new drawers. I was dissappointed with the drawers. They are not made to hold any kind of weight. Maybe the weight of socks or underware, but not jeans or anything that is heavy. After all is said and done, I would not buy another pre fab of anything. The pressed board breaks to easy and be sure to not overscrew anything or it will strip.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The bed was supposed to be a dark brown, but it really looks like a black instead.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Once together the bed is very sturdy.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? For the most part it is accurate. But the drawers are very shallow.

When we had problems getting answers to questions concerning the box spring of this bed we should have not ordered it. Finally somebody told us that it would be no problem using a flexible slats and not nail in the slats that come with the bed. Wrong! The bed arrived and it was a chore putting it together. We have put together several items from Ikea and that's not always easy but this one required help from a friend who is also a handyman. When we finally had it assembled ( we were lucky, there was only one part missing which was replaced after several calls and emails), we realized just how small the drawers are. Your description: "Six generous drawers set on Whisper quiet Euro glide drawer slides provide convenient extra storage to maximize your personal space" is far off from reality. Generous they are not and whisper quiet neither. When I tried to put a pillow into one of them the bottom came out. They should be fastened with screws as short nails into particle board don't cut it. The drawers are not even lined with a plastic coating! Very cheap look. We made the mistake of ordering one fitting night stand as well. We cannot recommend this bed to anyone. Very dissatisfied with it and will replace it as soon as we can afford it.
