This bed pulls together a room without the "fussy" look of some brass or metal beds. Overall the bed looks sleek. The bed came packaged in 2 boxes and was very easy to assemble. It is very sturdy and doesn't wobble. It is slightly higher than a basic mattress support so you do get another few inches of storage under the bed. The color is darker than pictured, looks almost black.
I ordered this piece for my daughter. She loved it and it arrived on time and I didn't even open package until months after ordering (since we were moving later, but needed to make sure I didn't miss out on this item) Risky I know, working in the Consumer Affairs I would have never done this nor do i recommend anyone doing so. But I am glad I did. It was a bit hard to put together, but I did it by myself I am certain it would have been easier with another person to help.
After reading the reviews I was excited about this bed for my guest room, but I just opened the package and I'm really disappointed. Its very light weight, which I guess is not a problem, but my big hang up is the finish. The color is very dark gray/ black but has a metallic shimmer to it, like car or bicycle paint. Definitely not what I would want for a bed that has an antique style. It just looks super cheap. I'm debating about whether to return it or try to spray paint it, but will probably return it because I don't think I can feel good about paying more than about $*** for something like this.
I gave this bed a score of excellent for quality, value and style - it is very sturdy, easy to put together and looks great. However, I was expecting pewter, and the finish is black. We kept it anyway since it still works in the room, but I would not recommend to a friend based on the inaccurate color description.
Bed was very cute for my daughters room, going to add some string lights for her and you can wrap them around the head and footboard easily. The only negative I would say is the bed frame is a touch tricky...we have had to adjust it a couple of times. But overall happy with product!
Bought this for my daughter. She wanted a simple metal bed for her room. We looked at antiques but decided to find something that looked antique instead. This was exactly what we were looking for. EASY to put together and sturdy. VERY IMPRESSED.
I set this bed up all by MYSELF in less than 20 min!! I tell you NO lie, the bed was that easy to put together! I am going to buy 2 more in twin for my grandsons. I looked around so many places for a nice simple bed and they were going for over $300.00 and the materials were very bad fake wood. Overstock answered my prayers!!
I needed a mid range bed frame, something that wasn't too chintzy but didn't break the bank. This fits the bill. The frame is lightweight which makes it easy for me to move around on my own. It does look like a mid range bed, so if you want something that looks fancy and high quality this is not for you. The one aspect that I wasn't as pleased with as I had hope was the headboard slides over two bars which give it the height. This would be fine but it was difficult to get it to fit snugly without tracking down a rubber mallet. In reading the reviews I was a little worried about the space under the bed, Since there were several people who claimed there wasn't any space under the bed. However I have a couple of the plastic containers that are designed to go under beds for my sheets and they fit with plenty of clearance.
Arrived in 2 boxes; side rails in one box, head/foot in other. Easy to assemble. I attached head rail extension poles first, then dropped head rail into mounted extension poles. This worked out fine and avoided the problem of having to line up screw holes. Bonus: Due to simple style you could easily create a slip cover for either the head board and/or both and change the entire look of the bed. Great value and versatility. A throw blanket easily fits over the bottom rail as well as an accent. Thanks "O". I love this bed.
