The boxes were heavy and the bag of hardware was initially overwhelming but the directions were easy to follow and everything went together well. Well made. I would have preferred that the bolts were not visible on the final product (ie countersink the bolts, have bolt covered). Two people easily put the main part of the bed together in less than 1.5 hours (we put the drawers together later).
Bought this bed for my 16 year old who needed more storage space. It's a study little bed and was fairly easier to put together, thankfully with the assistance of my engineer boyfriend. We were missing two pieces of hardward, but the company shipped them out to me right away. It looks great and she loves it. I bought the bookcase headboard at the same time and it went together well and the bed looks good with it. Glad I got it for her as she now can put her stuff away!!! (HA HA...what am I thinking, she's 16. It will still be on the floor.)
We are looking for this type of bed and it is what we expected. Quality is again what we expected, and Overstock had best price out here. To put this bed together, you need two people, and drawer on both side comes very handly.

This bed was purchased for our young daughter. It's not made of the best wood. In fact, I think it's more like plywood. However, since she is young and her taste will more than likely change, I think it was a great buy for the price. I definitely wouldn't recommend this bed to anyone who is looking for above average quality bedr oom furniture.
I am not very happy with my purchase but it will suffice. I don't feel the bed is sturdy enough. The slats go top to bottom rather than side to side and they don't screw down, so they slide all over the place. I don't feel there is enough support for a platform bed and may have to put some plywood down. The frame construction doesn't seem to have enough screws and I am concerned it will collapse after a couple years of use. Also be prepared for 3+ hours of assembly time. I am experienced in do it yourself furniture, but this one with the 6 drawers took quite a lot of time. Overall, I wish I could return the bed and buy something else.
I went ahead and moved our two old into a the double platform bed rather than a typical toddler bed-we have a very old house rooms are small and there is no closet in her room so the bed was great to have in case of an overnight guest and the storage helps keep things off the floor. This headboard offers a bit more storage but it just gives it a nice clean and put together look. As I was 9 months pregnant my husband and bro-in law put the two together ..took them about 3 hours to do both the bed and headboard. I also bought the cubby bench again gave me more storage and again just helped pull it all together for a nice room set
This unit took nearly 3 hours to construct. It is made of low quality, low density fiberboard, with the edges of many pieces exposed/unsealed. The resulting bed weighs nearly 100 pounds, and will not likely survive one move without falling apart. The design is useful, and the drawers slide smoothly and cleanly- right until they hit the exposed screws/bolts that line up with them perfectly. This is definitely a short lived piece of furniture.
I bought it October 2013 and I have been using it since then. The base slats are not fixed. They are separate from each other. So when you even use it for like a day or 2 you have to keep adjusting the slats one by one. Almost everyday. Its a pain. Lift your mattress everyday and adjust the slats. Sit and get up so carefully that it doesnt move beneath you. Do not buy this.
Delivered very quickly in 3 large and heavy boxes. Took a good part of a Saturday to assemble by myself, but my son is very pleased with the new bed. Also has 3 storage drawers (on each side) so it will give him more room in his small bedroom.
This bed is excellent and a great buy. Tons of extra storage. Got it for my daughters room so we didn't have to get a dresser to save some space. There is TONS of storage in the bed. Very sturdy and easy assembly

I like the six drawers but they are fragil. I may end up glueing them up the strengthen them for a longer life. Nice finish and works well for our needs.

FOR THAT PRICE I WILL RECOMMEND THIS BED FOR KIDS OF ANY AGE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SPACESAVERS, THE STORAGE DRAWERS ARE VERY HELPFUL, THE MATCHING NIGHTSTANDS MAKE A VERY NICE LOOKING BEDROOM. NIGHTSTAND ARE SOLD SEPARATELY, I AM PLEASED WITH THIS BED.
We bought this bed for my daughter to give her more storage space. Worked out great! The only complaint is that you can see down into the drawers from all the corners of the mattress...there are slats to put the mattress on, so it's not solid, and you can see 'through' the slats. Luckily my husband is a handy guy and placed some plywood (painted white to match) on top of the slats and problem was solved!
