The bed was very easy to put together by myself. 6'1 adult male. The finish was evenly applied. The bed is very sturdy.
The only negative is one scar, caused by shipping, on the bed. Thankfully it was on the side facing the wall.
Use gloves when handling the slats. They are covered with some nasty black coating.
You may want to get more wood screws for the slats however it is not necessary because they are connected via ribbon tape.
The center support beam feet are easily stripped out if not careful during installation.
If using a memory foam mattress with the bed you will have to use plywood because the slats are not sufficiently supportive.
Bed frame came with 1/2 of the screws needed for the slats. Tells you to put screws in every other slat, not very sturdy, had to get extra screws. About 20 minutes to put together. Cheap bed, get what you pay for. Looks cool in a teen boys room. Can fit storage boxes underneath! Overall an OK buy for the money.
It was fairly easy to put together, but it seems flimsy and weak.We have had it for about 2 weeks and my husband sat on the bottom of the bed last night, not even that hard. The bottom slat broke! He only weighs 175 lbs. Sooo we will see. its pretty enough, and like I said, good for the price.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very red
The quality of the bed is good. After reading the reviews, I was concerned about the slats but I think they are sturdy enough. What I don't like is that their is a good 2 inches of space from the bed and the frame. I was hoping that the bed would snug right up to the frame like it looks in the picture, but it doesn't. This means, when the bed is pushed up to the wall, their is another 4 inches of open space.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. fine
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The picture is not accurate
I waited to review this product because I wanted to see how it would hold up. Within a year I made the first repair to the bed. One of the wooden dowels holding the outer frame together broke, not a big deal, we repaired it. After a few months the same thing happened to another corner of the bed, so I reinforced all four corners with L brackets, however because the frame itself is made from a very soft wood, I don't expect my repair to hold. In spite of the pilot holes drilled prior to screwing on the L brackets, I expect the frame to completely split before long.
Assembling the bed was a nightmare, because in order for the slats to fit in the frame, the frame must be looser than common sense would allow. The bed has always shifted, even after completely tightening all of the screws.
Good for a guest bed, or something short term, or even for a very small child that wont jump in the bed, but spend a little more if you are a regular sized person who needs to sleep on it every night.
After reading reviews that stated that the frame was too large for the mattress and multiple reports of defective side rails and mismatch between slats and screw holes, we ordered with some trepidation. We want to share with prospective buyers that our own experience was uniformly positive. Really an attractive and good quality bed. No problems.
Its good but one problem was as i found in other reviews many screws and the holes were misfitting and sometimes its a problem. But besides this its fine and i like the color but how durable time will tell!

Hi, i just have a full size mattress of around 5 inches in height. don't have a box spring, so does this mattress fits in this frame ?mlkamala on Dec 13, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
this is a platform bed so it needs a mattress that can handle this. It sound like your coil mattress will be too thin to provide proper support.myhouse385 on Dec 14, 2013
Yeah the ledge it sits on is only about an inch or two deep,ivy197 on Dec 17, 2013
Hi gtrinette, not directly on this bed frame it would have to be a headboard that installs to the wall. Heres a link to some that we offer. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!
