The bed is, for the most part, as described. The instructions of how to put the bed together aren't that clear. Also the bed comes in multiple boxes, the frame in one group, and the drawers in another. Because my order was initially messed up, and the drawers were not delivered, I had to put the bed together without setting the tracks for the drawer. This later proved extremely difficult, as the tracks were hard to put into place after the frame was together. Further there were not screw holes for the drawer track, so I had to use a little elbow grease to force the screws into the area the holes should have been. After being put together, the bed is very shaky. This is fine for just me, but would be difficult for two people or if you move around a lot in your sleep.

I bought this for my daughter who is 22. She has limited space so the drawers came in very handy. She could get rid of one of her huge dressers; therefore giving her more space. The bed is perfect for a young adult or someone like my daughter living in a smaller place. I would recommend this bed and I would recommend Overstock. I have used Overstock for other items and they are GREAT and I love how they do not charge shipping!

Unfortunately we had a horrible experience with this product. We bought it with the headboard (bookshelf), mattress and mattress protector. First of all, not all parts were shipped. In the middle of assembling the bed, we realized that we were missing screws and boards. Reached out to customer services, which took 4 days to answer that they don't have the parts. Asked us to return the product for refund, but it would have taken more work to dis-assemble, package it and send the 100 pound heavy bed. We ended up getting some store credit. The drawers don't fit either. This product is made of very cheap materials and is very poorly engineered/designed.
You know for the price it is a really nice bed. Solid when together but it takes two people pretty much the better of 4 to 5 hours. Or, we were just being really slow! Building the drawers took the longest. Nice solid little number when it is done though! It would be really awesome for a spare bedroom or kids!
We bought 3 of the bookcase headboards and the bed frames with drawers. My husbands complaints started as soon as he opened the boxes and found all the pressed wood. The supports for the headboard are very flimsy, so take extra care with moving it (We had one casualty). The drawers for the bed frame did not assemble easily and a few would not slide into the bed at all. We also moved these beds across country and that was a catastrophe! Of the three headboards and three bed frames with storage drawers only two of the headboards survived the trip. I would definitely discourage anyone who is not in their forever home from buying these products! If you do purchase them and plan to move them, DO NOT let the movers disassemble the bed frames, you will be left with ball bearings on the floor, and a pile of pressed wood rubble.
This is a very heavy platform bed. The drawers are great for under-bed storage for those who don't have large bedrooms. I bought the three piece set, bed, mattress, & bookcase headboard. All were delivered quickly and in excellent condition. Well packed. The hard part was putting it together. Very heavy and had to be taken up a flight of stairs. With help, it was soon together and really sturdy and comfortable. Just the perfect thing for my grown daughter, who lives with me. She loved the black color and the convenient storage and bookcase headboard. Excellent price for all three pieces!
