Bed arrived quickly, 2 days. One end of the box had pulled open during shipping but nothing was missing or damaged. Materials are of good quality, all real wood. Assembly took about an hour and a half, but if you're inexperienced putting together boxed furniture plan on longer. Once assembled it is very sturdy as all the cross slats are individually screwed on. Overall it looks nice and is a good value for the price. It was a good quick solution for a new house where a queen box spring wouldn't fit up the curving stairs.

This product was very hard to assemble. The pieces were mislabled like most of the furniture items on overstock. The construction of the bed is a poor design. The bed is broken into several unnecessary pieces which makes the construction unstable.This bed is horrible. I have had it now for about a month and i am already looking for a new bed. I will never purchase furniture from Overstock again. I am very unpleased and would not revommend this piece for anyone. Im sitting on the lopsided bed right now that is getting ready to buckle at any moment, cant waut for yhe weekend to come so i can get a real bed. No on overstock furniture! Poor poor quality!

Considering it's low price, this bed is pretty good. Once assembled it looks like real furniture (similar to basic *** stuff), and I don't expect it to break anytime soon unless the kids start jumping on it. It's not a beautiful bed, but again for the price you wouldn't expect that. It's definitely much more appealing that a simple metal support for the bed (which is about the same price range). The good: - Wood, all the pieces were there, assembly wasn't very hard. What could be improved: - My biggest annoyance with the bed are the middle legs. If you look closely at the picture of the side of the bed, you'll see the middle leg partially covered by bedding. That middle leg is attached to the outside of the bed frame, so it protrudes slightly from the side. I've only had the bed a few weeks in a guest room and already (even though I'm not using it) have stubbed my toe on those legs more than once. I have no idea why they didn't the put those legs on the inside. - Unlike the picture, the legs hidden under the bed are not espresso. That's fine for me since you don't see them. - The construction is not overly robust. If you drag the bed on carpet the side legs will twist slightly so they won't sit straight. Again, it's a basic bed, so as long as you know to make sure the bed is sitting properly it should be just fine. - The instructions. There are a lot of useless left/right information on the instructions that was more confusing than helpful. Read the instructions first, then construct the bed in your head, then build. It was pretty easy to build, once you remove the confusion induced by the instructions and labeling.
