I bought this for my daughters crib to bed transition. You could probably put it together alone, but it went a lot smoother with two people and a power drill. The pieces are slippery and although I tried to do it myself, I struggled. The center piece down the middle under the frame was very warped and that too needed two people to secure since one person had to really pull on it to line up the holes. Nothing major. We had it together in about 20 minutes. Oh, and one of the side rails had a fairly large gauge in it that I darkend with a black permanent marker. You can't see it because it's up against the wall, so I ignored it. I'm certain it happened during shipping. They also don't give you enough screws for certain parts, but it seems to be ok without. We'll see! My daughter loves it!
Bought two of these twin bed frames. Created a lovely room for when the grandkids come to visit (or anyone!). The color and style were exactly what we envisioned. Probably could be rated 5 - but haven't had them long to judge how they'll hold up. So far - very good. One night I slept on one to see how it felt - very supportive. We only use the top mattress; the slats are plentiful and strong - so support well. They arrived really quickly - thank you OS. And the shipping price was terrific.
I ordered two of these beds. They came as described and went together with ease. One of the beds had minor chips on the end of each rail, but not bad. The other bed was in perfect condition. They are quite sturdy and I?d say a fair value.
The bed frame arrived in 3 boxes as stated and was in good condition. It was easy to assemble and I was surprised at how much thought went into how to put it together. It is very sturdy and looks great. I did end up making an upholstered headboard since it did not have one, but this to me is a plus. Can personalize it to your decor. I give it 2 thumbs up!
It took 2 men to put this bed together in about an hour. Assembly seemed to go fine, they did use a power drill instead of the recommended screwdriver. Bed looks very nice when assembled, what is not pictured above is the length wise support beam with 4 feet which runs under the bed right in the middle. We have old school mattresses - one regular and one boxspring - we ended up using both since the top mattress is not high enough by itself on the supporting slats. Overall, easy assembly, nice look, good price, fast shipping and it is not terribly heavy.
I bought 2 of these beds for my daughters. They are adorable and look wonderful in thier bedroom. Very sturdy frames and easy to assemble. The only problem that I had was I was missing washers for 1 bed but it wasn't a big deal to go to the store and pick some up.
I am very pleased with the espresso platform bed. It arrived quickly in three boxes which were relatively easy to carry. There was no shipment damage and all of the wood was nicely finished and fit together perfectly. I was able to assemble the bed in about an hour with just a phillips screwdriver. The only improvement I could suggest would be to include screws for every slat instead of about every other slat. As has been suggested, if you don't have a box spring you will want a plywood sheet under your mattress. I am using cardboard under a foam mattress with no problems. The bed is sturdy and looks nice.
Received this bed today and was very pleased. It took me 30 minutes to assemble and I had no problems with the middle legs lining up or falling off. I only had problems with the end slat that did not match up, so I got my drill and made a hole and they lined up perfect. Overall this is a great bed. I bought it for my son as a gift and now waiting for the 4 inch topper to arrive. Overstock always has great quality and great delivery. It arrived in less then 3 days. Thanks a lot for a superb sale.
Great bed, great value! Shopped around and compared quality and prices. This is the best platform bed around! Solid wood. Very stylish. Very sturdy. Easy to assemble. Arrived quickly. We used a box spring with a black cover, then mattress and surfer-themed bedding. My teen-aged son was very pleased............has that dorm-room look!
This is the best twin bed I ever have. The shipment came with three boxes. The assembly was very easy. The appearance of expresso finish looks great and it has a very well built frame. There are sufficient solid wood frame center support bars and three center support legs to support the bed. I purchased this bed for my 7 year old daughter but I believe it's more solid than the queen bed in my master bedroom. If you are looking for a platform twin bed, this is the one to get.
This bed is great! Worked perfectly for my smaller guest bedroom. Easy to assemble. Clear and easy instructions. The only thing is that there is a little extra room for the mattress. I bought a standard twin size serta mattress to go on top. I have it set up like a day bed and just put pillows against the wall to cover the small gap. All in all it was a great purchase, it looks fabulous in my guest room!
