First off, i dont want to scare you away. This is a very nice bed, its all metal, thick metal. It'll hold up to abuse. Its not cheaply made pot metal. Its also beautiful. Its certainly worth the price.
Now the problems.
Shipping: It ships in three separate boxes. The largest one, the headboard, is really the only problem one. It really wasnt designed to be shipped via a service like UPS. It has almost no packing material in it. When it arrived the box was in horrible shape. in fact, the UPS guy said to me "this is not one of my proudest moments in delivery". It didnt appear to be damaged, so no harm, no foul.
When i took everything out of the box, all the assembly hardware, 2 finials, and the instructions were missing.
I contacted overstock, and they were very helpful, sent everything out the next day, took 3 days to arrive. I was a little concerned at that point, because without any documentation, i had no idea if thats all i was missing, i was just guessing based off the pictures of the bed.
[i actually opened on request for the hardware, then when looking noticed the finials were missing and made another request 15 minutes late]
The hardware arrived, and was mildly incorrect. i was given all smaller lock washers when some 5/16th were required. Not the end of the world as a quick trip to the hardware store and 98 cents later i was ready to assemble.
Most of the bed went together extremely easily. I'd say all together it took maybe an hour. However 45 minutes of that was spent just trying to fit the one side of the headboard to the leg. It was clearly bent in transport, and was quite difficult to do. I think many people without a selection of tools or great strength would have given up, called overstock, and had another sent. It really was quit difficult. i was more worried i'd snap one of the welds trying to bend it back into shape.
Once that was addresses, it went together without issue.
the instructions also noted that with the addition of a bracket (which was i guess supposed to be included in the hardware, but was not) you could attach regular bed rails to the bed. Im not sure if this was optional, or just left out of mine with the rest of the missing chunks. it doenst really matter, there's no need for it.
Please note, that this does require a box spring, or base.
My daughter loves the bed though. like i said its solid, it doesnt move when she flops on it. Certainly a good buy.

This is one solid bed! We originally bought one for one of our twin 2 year old daughters. I originally was trying hard to avoid the same exact bed for both girls. Thier older sister is also in the same room and has a similar bed, and I was going for three different but similar beds for the three different kids. We were going to buy another bed from another manufacturer for her twin. Looked at the quality of the other bed and quickly decided to buy a second bed that matched. The quality is absolutely amazing. This bed is SOLID. I have no doubt that it will hold up to the YEARS of rough housing that three girls will give it, and still be available to take to that first apartment as a young adult.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Amazing. It's solid. It doesn't wiggle at all with or without a mattress on it.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate however, I didn't realize the posts were also metal until it arrived. There is NO wood on this bed but it sure looks like wood.
I bought this bed for myself about a month ago. Came is several boxes, great condition, fast shipping. Its much easier if you have two people to put this bed together. Its came with special rubber rings to keep between the metal parts to prevent squicking sound. Very smart touch I would say. It's very sturdy bed with very nice finish. I also bought 11 inch foam-gel cooling mattress from this site also and added spring box under. So, bed came out all together is absolutely gorgeous. Very good looking bed for the lady or young couple, I would recommend it.
the bed looks very nice and went together fairly easily. the only issue I have, which I think another reviewer had mentioned, is that there is a
good sized gap (on the full size frame) between the mattress/boxspring and the headboard/footboard (frame too long). Maybe a full XL mattress set would work fine, if there is such a thing. Using it in a college student's apartment and she likes it.. so, all in all, a good purchase.
I ordered the double bed frame and the headboard does NOT fit the legs - It's a huge hassle to now try and get the right headboard. It's a lovely style - but if you do order, make SURE you get the right pieces.
The only reason this bed received two stars is because of the frame -- it is pretty sturdy, especially for the price of the bed. Other than that, it is poor quality with a cheap paint job and tacky looking. It ships in two separate orders, as others have mentioned, which meant it took me longer to discover that some of the connections didn't line up for e footboard and the frame and that some of the corner welding was, well, insufficient, making it unsafe if someone happened to bounce on it. Throw in the fact that some of the blots were missing and we were hunting through the toolbox trying to find something to make it work and e great deal wasn't so great after all. You really do get what you pay for
The shape and detail of the bed is exactly like the pictures, but the color does not come through at all – especially the cherry legs of the bed. The hardware I received didn’t really work as the directions indicated. The screws to attach the headboard and foot-board to the legs were too short if the washers were used; and I was missing one of the screws to attach the railings to the legs. The instructions were barely that and I have so many extra pieces of hardware left over it is kind of ridiculous. The bed held through a night’s sleep though.
The headboard is gorgeous but overall it was a bear to put together, so I wouldn't really recommend it.

My boxspring is shorter in length than my full size mattress. Together they are 15 inches in height. Would they fit well with this bed frame? Thank you.ksm71 on Apr 18, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
*shorter in height than the mattressksm71 on Apr 18, 2014
Hello ksm71, it will probably be alright, however, it would be best to have both a full-size mattress and box springs for the best mattress support. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 21, 2014
Hello sjgrant17, a full size bedskirt should give you a proper length for a full size bed, and the height of the box springs you put on the bed should determine the drop you need. We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 20, 2014

Hello willow08, The bedding was used to stage the stock photo we received for our product page, so we don't have that exact bedding. However, we have a huge inventory of bedding that you will be able to find something quite close to the bedding used in the photo.

Hello. This bed is very beautiful, but our full size mattress fits very loosely. Can you please provide any solutions so that the mattress will not slide around? Thank you very much.supasu on Sep 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello supasu, The only thing we can think of is to add additional or thicker bedding. A full size mattress should be 53 x 75, while this overall bed dimensions are 58.75 inches wide x 77 inches deep thereby, allowing room for extra bedding and for ease in making the bed. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Thank you for contacting us.

I added spring box under this matress and it solved the problem!klavdia on Oct 17, 2013
Hello. If we were to purchase a slatted bed base, can we do without the box spring?supasu on Aug 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello supasu, Beds that are made specifically for a platform base will have as many as 13 slats or more and they are spaced maybe 3 inches apart. This particular bed only has 3 slats and is made for a box springs and mattress. If you are looking at this bed to use without a box springs, you could get what is call a bunkie board to provide a solid base. I hope this answers your question. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 28, 2013
