Piece shipped in 2 boxes. A friend assembled it with relative ease. The bed looks great and the measurements are exactly as described.The only complaint I have is that the bed is low. I used some risers from the dorm section of Bed Bath & Beyond to correct the issue. Other than that I have no complaints and would totally recommend.
Based on other positive reviews, I bought this platform bed for a small bedroom because of its low profile and solid construction. It was a breeze to assemble. Most importantly, it has a heavy duty metal mesh that supports my pillow-topped foam mattress (also from overstock) SO MUCH better than my previous bed that had slats instead. The difference in comfort is immediately noticeable.
