There is not one negative thing I can say about this purchase, other than shipping seemed slow but I think that was because of it being Thanksgiving week; it actually arrived the estimated arrival date. The bed was packaged very well, all pieces were there. It took my husband and me 40 minutes from start to finish to assemble the bed and that included putting on the box spring, mattress and making the bed. The instructions were pictures only and took a little studying before we began. On both the headboard and footboard one part of the bed did not line up exactly with the bedpost, but my husband slightly bent the headboard piece with his hands to get it to fit, and on the footboard part, he took a hammer with a piece of cardboard between the hammer and bed to knock it into alignment without damaging the finish. I noticed a lot of reviewers also had this problem, but ours was certainly nothing that couldn't be easily fixed. So if that happens with yours, don't despair because it's an easy fix. The bed is beautiful, well made, and I expect will last us a long time.

I bought this bed after my cheap metal frame broke. After reading all of the reviews for several beds on here, I decided on this one because of the look of it and the price was reasonable. It was shipped in a timely manner and was so simple to put together. I put it together all by myself and had no problems at all. Would definitely recommend this bed and website to anyone looking for a good bed at a great price :)

Newcastle made it to three strikes with us. We ordered this bed and it arrived with bent posts in the headboard and footboard. These posts are supposed to attach to the legs of the bed. Overstock was more than helpful in having a replacement sent to us. The replacement was also bent, though not as badly. Again, Overstock was on-point to rectify the situation. Bed #3 arrived also bent, and so we're done. We know that Overstock will facilitate the return as well as our refund, but it was a disappointment, to be sure. Save yourself the headache - don't order this bed.

The bed arrived on time, just put it together with no problem. Husband (who's very picky) actually asked me to write a review to say how outstanding he felt the bed was, it its looks, value and ease of putting together.
I LOVE THIS BED. IT TOOK ME A FEW HOURS TO ASSEMBLE BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. MAYBE I AM JUST COMPARING IT TO WHAT WE HAD, BUT STILL LIKE IT. WE ARE WAITING ON A NEW BEDDING SET AND THEN WE WILL BE ECSTATIC! THE ONLY NEGATIVE I HAVE TO SAY IS THAT IT WASN'T "MADE IN THE U.S.A."
Hello sharonannejohnson, the metal is cast iron and the bed has a center support that runs horizontally, but not vertically. We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 7, 2014

I cant fit a box spring up my stairs! will wood slats work as a substitute for a box spring?northshore777 on May 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
HI northshore777, this bed has a total of 3 support slats. My recommendation would be to use a board for stability. The 3 slats will not hold up a mattress evenly. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 15, 2013
Thanks for your interest, any queen size bed will work great. Please see the link I've provided below.

Are the posts and other parts of this bed made of wood or is it just a wood look?nellyro on Dec 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The posts are made to look like wood. It's not actually wood. But it looks very nice. I just purchased this in a queen and it looks great! The railings(the leafy design in between the posts) are metal & look metal. The posts are metal but look like wood! Hope this helpedmarthafrank on Apr 23, 2013
There is no wood on this at all. I won't lie, the post look amazing and like real wood. I was so surprised and actually happy due to the durability of an all metal bed.dtbalog on May 11, 2013
