Daybed arrives in several heavy boxes, and it took some effort to carry them up to the third floor bedroom where the unit will live. Once I got all the pieces upstairs my 16 year old daughter and I were able to put it together in about 2 hours. Make sure you carefully follow the directions, some pieces can be installed backwards by mistake, and you'll have to unscrew them and put them back in. Directions are not the best, but if you pay attention closely you can do it. All the pieces are labeled clearly, and it helps to have a helper for some of the tasks. The daybed looks good, is solid, and comfortable. I've slept on it and was happy with the feel of it, as a 6' 220 lb man it did not creak or groan under me as I shifted around. You might want to use a low profile mattress, as it sits up pretty high with a standard mattress. Only thing I'm not happy about is the lingering odor from the finish. Its been three weeks, and there is still a pronounced odor in the well ventilated room. Hopefully it'll clear up shortly, its better than it initially was.

I ordered this bed for my extra bedroom ,it's a small room and this is perfect for it. I just love it, I went to furniture stores in our town all they had was cheap looking ones,and they were not cheaply priced. This bed is very heavy and made good.

This is really a beautiful, well designed, heavy piece of furniture. Really looks amazing in my house! The finish is perfect and the bottom drawers run very smoothly with a heavy metal slider system. Would have given it a perfect score if it hadn't been for all the swearing that resulted in putting this monster together. However, I think it was worth it. My husband, who did most of the swearing, might think different. I love it!
This is a quality product! Very well made & sturdy. It did take my husband a few hours to put together(and he is good at doing this) but was well worth the time and effort. It was delivered in three boxes, so we were able to carry it easily. I know we will be using this for years to come. Also I would like to say the price is great, we saw a few similar items in "quality" furniture stores, they all wanted over $XXXX and couldn't even begin to compare with being as well made!
The bed looks good but the setup took quite a bit of time. I found the directions helpful but you need to look at the diagrams carefully. There was no waste - nonvisible parts (ex back of daybed) are not as well finished. One drawer fits flush while the other is slightly off but I couldn't figure out how to adjust it. It will dent easily and moving it should be done very carefully. Someone else mentioned it, the packing and boxing was an engineering miracle but the amount of foam padding caused me to exceed my carbon footprint for years :) All in all, it is sturdy and looks great.
This bed is perfect! Very classy and it was $200-300 cheaper on overstock than anywhere else I saw it.

This is a beautiful, heavy, well made day bed. It was a little more difficult to put together than I had expected. I order a lot from overstock and this one was harder than most. That being said, I am satisfied with the bed and it looks beautiful in my son's room. He loves it!
