When I received the shipment, the box containing the headboard and footboard is was noticeably damaged (blame it on UPS), but everything inside was intact. The bed came into two boxes, one for the bed frame and another one for the headboard and footboard + hardware. Everything you need to assemble is included. Before I purchased this bed, I was contemplating on the Bonaire bed by Hillsdale. After seeing this bed on Overstock (it appears to have been added recently), I immediately fell in love with it. For half the price of the Hillsdale piece, it's a no brainer. After purchasing the bed, I got it in 3 business days. Assembly took about 2 hours by myself. The instructions are pretty clear, but be careful. The diagram showing the allen bolts is kind of confusing and because of that, I had to partially disassemble the frame more than once because I installed the wrong size bolts. The quality of the craftsmanship is great, but you can tell it's not a Hillsdale product (it's made by Home Elegance, BTW). The decorative terminals ontop of each post is actually screwed on, not casted onto the post as a single solid piece. I also like how the bed frame has three slats going across to distribute the weight of the mattress set evenly. The bed, when finished, raised my mattress set a little over 2.5 feet off the floor! Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. When we get a king bed, we'll get the Bonaire by Hillsdale. But for now, this bed will suffice.

The bed is beautiful. Like the other reviews said, the wooden parts are actually metal but it doesn't detract from the bed at all The bed came in two separate boxes on two different days (wasn't expecting that) and the box itself was a hot mess but nothing was damaged inside. It was easy to put together and it looks great in our guest bedroom.

Great bed for the money. Although there were no assembly instructions, it was pretty easy to figure out. Packing could have been a little better as the packaging was coming off when delivered.

I loved this bed from the first moment I saw it. I decided to buy the bed, however, based uppn the reviews posted. The bed arrived within a week. It was packed very securely, with layers of plastic, and styrofoam. After studying the instructions, counting my materials , and laying everything out, I was ready. For me, the total construction was about 2 hours (I'm ambidextrous and sometimes install things backwards. :/ ). The instructions were comprehensible and the diagrams were invaluable. The final result was a beautiful, strong bed. I have received an excellent value for my money, and look forward to many years of enjoying my beautiful bed.
The bed arrived in smashed box. There was a scratch (thin but about 3 inches long) on the headboard post but not enough to send back. I will try to cover to disguise. The bed was fairly easy to put together.

This bed is exactly what I was looking for. It's very elegant. Delivery was quick and although the cardboard boxes had a couple of holes in them from shipping all the parts were there. The directions are easy to follow and it did help that my husband and I put it together. The bed is a bit heavy but assembled easily. One thing to note is the bed doesn't have cherry wood posts but are metal and look like cherry wood. I am very pleased with this bed. I looked for several months and found a great buy for a very pretty bed! Thanks overstock!
The bed did come in a damaged box, and it came with NO instructions. However I still give this gorgeous bed 5 stars. I LOVE IT!!!! It really looks very expensive. Put it together in about an hour. Only needed help from someone to steady the bed pieces while I screwed them in. The bed is sturdy and honestly improves the look of your room. Buy it!!!! You won't be disappointed.
I have never ordered anything as large as a bed online and admit I was nervous about the purchase. I was very relieved when it was delivered. It was delivered in about a week and was exactly as pictured. the packaging was adequate and I only found one very slight dent in an area that wasn't that noticeable. easy to assemble. so I'm very pleased and would recommend overstock.
