I am pleased with the quality of this bed for the price. The finish is very even. It is more brown than it appears in the photo. Much better quality than the beds I viewed for the same price in local stores. I put the bed together by myself, in about 1.5 hours including moving the mattress and boxsprings off of the old frame, taking the old frame apart, and building the new bed and frame. The only additional tool I required was a wrench. All of the predrilled holes lined up beautifully and it went together without a hitch. The only odd thing was also mentioned by another reviewer - the baseboard feet are slightly elevated above the floor. This isn't a problem on carpeting but would probably look odd on bare floor. I think this bed is beautiful, especially for the price.
I was very dissapointed when we were putting the bed together. The cross rails for the king size bed were not drilled out like the instructions showed. I had to find some one to take the measurements and drill the holes so the bed could be put together. A job that should have taken maybe one hour ended up taking almost four hours. I would hesitate ordering something that had to be put together again. After all the problems putting the bed together it turned out to be a beautiful bed.
This was the first time I had ordered from Overstock.com. I was very happy with the price and quality of the bed. I was looking for a bed for our extra bedroom and this is exactly what I wanted. It did not take long to receive. My husband had it together in less than an hour.
I was worried the bed would be a very light color, but it is a dark brown. Not black, but quite dark. It was easy to assemble and the frame is solid. The allen wrench needed to assemble the bed is included. I am keeping the bed and am pretty happy with it, but I thought it would be good to share one issue. The mattress is resting on the frame which has 6 legs (one at each corner and 2 in the center). The headboard and footboard attach to the frame and do not actually rest on the ground. So if you look carefully, you noticed the headboard and footboard are floating above the ground. Since the bed is really supported by the frame's legs, not the headboard/footboard's legs, you can see the frame's feet if you do not have a dust ruffle. Not that big of a deal, but I now need to buy a new dust ruffle that has a slit at each corner so that it will fall smoothly around the legs. Just like in the photo.
I had been considering a new queen bed for my guest room. I wanted it in metal but didn't want to spend a lot. When I looked in the stores some of the inexpensive metal headboards looked pretty cheap and flimsy though it could have been that they weren't properly assembled for showroom purposes. However the ones I saw that seemed much more substantial and sturdy cost more than I wanted to pay. Though I didn't see this one in person before purchasing, the reviews I read online seemed to indicate that this might just fit the bill. I saw a very reasonable price on Overstock during one of their recent sales and decided to take the chance. I'm glad I did. It's definitely a quality product and very sturdy. I had a little trouble with assembly, as I confused the headboard and footboard initially, but once I realized my mistake it was pretty easy to put together. I was able to do it by myself with the tools provided. The directions were a little torn so I had a hard time visualizing all the directions but I was able to figure it out. I considered the reviews I had read which recommended following the instructions so I would like to reinforce that recommendation. If you follow the directions you shouldn't have any trouble. Great product for a great price. I appreciate all the reviews I read which is what convinced me to go for it. Hope my review helps someone as well.
I did a lot of research before purchasing this bed and my decision was primarily based on the reviews I read. After we received it, I realized what everyone was saying about the appearance and quality. We love it! We ordered the queen size for our guest room and it looks beautiful with an antique feel. We have a southwestern home and it fits right in. It was also easy to assemble so my husband was happy about that.
Even though we have not slept on the bed yet, my son-in-law, who assembled the frame, was very impressed by how sturdy and well made it is. The style is just what I wanted for our guest bedroom. I added a chenille bedspread, so the effect is very vintage looking. It takes some experienced person to put it together, as it is heavy with many parts, but the directions are good. I recommend this bed. No shipping cost is a real plus.
Bed is beautiful, gives our bedroom the industrial farmhouse look we were going for. color is more of a painted brown with sparkle flecks, at first glance i didnt love it, but i barely notice it now and I think the style fits in perfectly. Three kids jump like monkeys on it and it has held up so far! love that frame comes with an extra support underneath. Does not have finishing pieces around the bottom of the back legs though, doesnt bother us since it is up against a wall, but some might not like that.
This bed arrived beautifully wrapped - very well padded - and there was not a nick on any part of the bed. It was easy to assemble and looks beautiful in our guest bedroom. The style of this bed would match any decor and looks way more expensive then it actually was. A great value for a sturdy, well made bed!
Bed arrived in 3 days, WELL wrapped. No, scratches, or bent materials; everything included in 2 boxes. I carried them into the house myself (I am small < 110 lbs) and assembled it with ease. Directions were concise but clear. I'd recommend this bed ... easy to put together,solid and goes well with my antique oak dresser.
