I bought this because we were looking for an alternative to chest of drawers taking up too much space in our small bedroom. I must admit I expected the worst after reading reviews of other similar beds..complaints of broken pieces, 7 hour set up times, crazy directions, etc..So when three boxes showed up I thought I'd be at it all day and night getting this thing together if it was even in one piece. To my delight everything arrived undamaged, and matched description exactly. The assembly wasn't terrible although it will take you about 2 1/2 hours and a friend to help once you get to the point you start standing things up for assembly. Drawers glide smoothly and are actually quite a nice size. The whole thing looks great assembled and I've gotten compliments on it already from family. We did use our box spring because my hubby was worried the slats wouldn't make for a good nights sleep with just a mattress over top. Makes the bed a bit taller than we are used to but I actually like the effect...great buy for the money so far!

Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
Overall, this was a great purchase for the price and I'm very satisfied. The assembly does require two strong people, as the pieces are extremely heavy. It doesn't look fancy by any means, but it certainly doesn't look cheap either.
What I like:
The size fits a queen bed perfectly and there aren't sharp corners that I bang my shins on
The design is unassuming and the drawers slide very easily - no sticking or splintery pieces
What I don't like:
The sides are flush to the floor, but the front and back ends have very narrow openings that things can roll under (like an earring) and be extremely difficult to retrieve
The bottoms of the drawers are quite flimsy so you can't really fill them all the way, and definitely not with anything heavy (like books or papers)

Great bed for the price. Assembly wasn't complicated (we did have a drill and hammer in the house to accelerate assembly). Very comfortable slat system and fantastic storage capacity with 6 full drawers (we got some drawer organizers from the Container Store and it made it even better).

This turned out to be exactly what my teenage son wanted! It took my husband about 3 hours to put it together, as it comes in many parts. But it looks amazing and it is extremely functional! It doesn't come with a bunky board, and I do recommend one for even support since no box spring is required.
We fell in love with *** *** headboard with shelving and bed frame with drawers because we just moved from a huge house to an impossibly small apartment -- not only was it cute but the space-saving option was a dream come true. But with only 4 drawers and a few reviews that the quality wasn't perfect we got the headboard and decided to look around for a better bed frame -- here it is! 6 drawers instead of 4 (we almost got the 12 drawer option but didnt' need quite that much space and wanted to keep the headboard functional) and definitely sturdy. Matches the headboard perfectly, and looks great in our room. It took 2 of us (we're really familiar with putting furniture together and have electric tools) just over 2 hours to put it together. The ONLY complaint I have is that the wooden slats that hold up the mattress will sometimes shift out of place but luckily with the drawers underneath it doesn't make the whole mattress off -- you'll just sink a tiny bit if you sit at that one end. We're going to get another couple thinner slats to put in between and think that will fix the problem quickly and easily. Great price on a great storage saving beautiful bed! Get this!
This is a great platform bedframe and the 6 drawers are good for a little extra room! This platform is very sturdy even though it is pressed wood, it would cost 2 or 3 times this price if it were solid wood. Just make sure you follow the instructions to the letter and you will have this built in 3hrs or less! It took me 4hrs 45min, but 2hrs was spent trying to find replacements for the locking pins. Also don't tighten the locking pins too tightly I broke a couple of mine but was able to manage assembly even after that. They don't give you any extra parts and finding those locking pins is like searching for a needle in a hay stack! LOL All in all I am very satisfied with this product and will say you would be too!
This disappointed me. I expected it to be a little better than **** quality. I guess I didn't spend enough.
First of all, it's not all that difficult to put together, though it is time consuming. Block off several hours for that.
The materials are cheap. It's mostly particle board. My box spring glanced against the frame when I was putting it together, and there are now multiple spots where the color is chipped off. It's a pain, if not impossible to get the drawers to all go in straight. All the drawers on one side of mine went in at an angle, so they don't rest completely flush when closed (this after trying and failing to adjust the frame to find the sweet spot where all the drawers go in straight).
It looks fine, if you don't examine it too closely, and it does a decent job of giving me more storage space in my tiny studio.
Can I just buy an 11' memory foam mattress and be okay? Or do I have to insert a box spring? Especially if its my husband and I.seharris15 on Jun 17, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello seharris15, You could definitely just put a thicker mattress right on top of the slats if that's what you prefer! Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 1, 2014

yes, we have a 11" memory foam mattress on it and it is very confortablecipollini on Jan 1, 2014
No. The slats are too far apart and can separate leaving big gaps which you can feel through the bed. However, you can pick up some cheap plywood at home depot and put it on top of the slats for a flat surface.swc2118 on Feb 21, 2014

I bought this bed in May, and this morning one of the drawers broke. The track rippped from the wood, bending in an odd shape and partially destroying the drawer. Can I have a replacement drawer sent?

Thank you for your inquiry; you will be contacted by Customer Care. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 9, 2013
The extra weight combined with the weight of two people might be a concern because the unit is not meant to be used that way. In many cases you should be fine the bed is made to hold alot of weight but unfortunately I am unable to determine beyond a shadow of a doubt that you will be ok with a box spring. I apologize for the inconvenience.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 16, 2013
Could you clarify a couple of questions. You said the bed in the photo had a box spring. It doesn't appear to. Does it need a box spring.
Someone else asked if you could use a different headboard. You said that maybe they wanted a different bed if they didn't want to keep the headboard. You also said the headboard wasn't included so that sounds like you can't keep it you would need to purchase it. Can you use a different headboard?terit00 on Nov 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You are not required to use a box spring for this bed. Also, it is okay to use a different headboard as well.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 6, 2012
