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.

Would give a better rating except the hardware was not included which was a bit inconvenient. Had to buy it as need the bed together right away and did not want the hassle of requesting/waiting. Thankfully we were able to obtain some hardware that fit and bed went together fairly well. It is nice and is high. Good value overall for the price.
It took an hour to assemble this bed. It came with the tools to assemble, and easy instructions. I was surprised our strong and heavy the construction was. This bed holds a 100LB mattress and 50LB box spring. It does not sqeak or shake. I am very pleased with this bed.
This is a good looking headboard and bed frame. It arrived 3 days after I ordered it, and the packing was very good. After getting all the parts out, and taking a good look at the assemble diagram, I went to work and had it together within an hour. I had to straighten one part to get it to fit, and had to clean out one drilled hole to get the bolt through it. Other than that, it went together without any problems. The bed construction appears to be very sturdy and I don't anticipate any problems with it lasting for many years. If you need a good headboard and frame, and don't want to pay retail prices, take a look at this one...
The bed was delivered on time. It was well packaged, but on the headboard, some of the bars were bent, but they could be easily hammered out. We put it together in less than an hour and it looks great! The only problem is that it's a little squeaky when you move around, but it's not too bad.
Shipping was fast to Canada. The bed frame was exactly as described. I would say the quailty is better than I expected for the price. This is my first big item purchased over the internet and I am not disappointed. Customer service is amazing too.
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
