I purchase this frame for it looks and quality. I can honesty say I got beyond my money worth! It is very stylish to which I was looking for in a bed frame. I get compliments on it all the time and people think I paid so much money for it! Putting it together was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Please note you should have some tools available. I have no complaints about my bed frame I simply love it!!!
The description says that this is a black metal bed. It is not black. It is antique brass which is more like a medium dark brown. I bought the bed for my guest bedroom, which is done in purple and black. The bed color looked awful in the room. I actually liked the style of another metal bed better than this one. The reason I bought this one was because it was described as black while the other was described as brown in one review. However, because the price was so good and I didn't want the hassle of returning it, I decided to keep the bed. I painted it black, and it now looks great next to the black and glass night stands and black metal lamps. The lavender sheets and purple comforter also look much better on a black metal bed. It is a very sturdy bed and easy to put together. I put it together myself (59 year old female). I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 mostly because of the color.
Love the unique style. Heavy, durable bed that should last quite awhile. Not high end as evident with visible tac welds on the metal joints when you look closely, but still a really great value! The color is very dark expresso I would say... as the reviewer earlier stated, it varies according to how much light is on the bed. Easy to assemble. The only disappointment for me was that the clearance underneath is a little lower which does not allow me to store my linen boxes that fit fine under my last bed. This was my first online purchase and I was pleased the packages arrived on time, in good shape, with no damage.
I read the reviews on this bed and I must say I am more than blown away. I got a bit nervous because it was very inexpensive but that doesn't mean anything except that Overstock is awesome! It came in two boxes which made me nervous because I knew I had to put it together but luckily I had my mom to help. She didn't have to do much except to help me slide the boxes to my bedroom, open them up and hold the side rails when they needed screwing in. Its pretty easy to put together if you organize yourself first. Unpack everything, take out all the screws, tools and bolts and be sure you have everything together and the right amount as described in the instructions. The only thing I would have liked is that the plastic pieces that go on the feet were in a package and not loose because I thought they were spacers in the box to kep the metal from rubbing during transit until I realized that they were apart of the bed itself. Take your time and follow the instructions and things will go smoothly. I was lucky enough to have a hex key set which allows for easier screwing/turning than the standard L-shaped hex key that it comes with. But its all put together now, is a very comfortable sleep, its very sturdy and looks lovely in my room. No complaints, thx again Overstock.
how high is this bed once the mattress n box spring are on..looking for a high bed??key15 on Aug 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello key15, The frame is approximately 6 inches from the ground, so the height will depend on what mattress and box springs height you are using. I hope this helps, let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 29, 2013
Could you tell me the height from the floor if you decide to use this without box springs? And are the side rails adjustable in height? Thank you!wxguy81 on Jul 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You really can't use this bed w/o a box spring, its not made for that. With the rails the way they are, the mattress will begin to sink in between the gaps. Its about 5.5 in from the floor and no the sid rails are not adjustable.chevybee on Jul 20, 2013
Thanks Chevybee for the answer.wxguy81 on Jul 20, 2013
Hello rayne3, According to the information on the box, this bed comes with a crossbar and 3 slats. To effectively use this bed without boxsprings, we suggest you use a bunkie board to provide a more solid foundation for a mattress. Unfortunately, we do not have any in our inventory, but they should be easy to find online. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 26, 2013
No the bed is going to low to the ground. I recommend a boxspring.honey718 on Aug 12, 2013
Hello, terenceong10. Hope your day is going well. The slats will do fine. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

I personally do not recommended not using some type of boarding under the mattress. There are many gaps in between the slats, they are fairly thin so support will begin to give eventually imo.chevybee on Jul 20, 2013
