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!

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).

I have been looking for sth that is not so pricey but with good quality. I don't want to go back to Ikea as well. So I tried overstock, and this bed surprised me! I am so glad I made this decision. The drawers are very convenient and the whole thing is not too hard to put together. (took me about half the day...)
Very cheap and very difficult to assemble. The press board cracked and broke off around many of the screw sites. I tightened these by hand and was careful not to over-tighten but the wood just crumbled. Given how heavy the bed is and how difficult it was to assemble (it took hours) and that the last few pieces are the ones that crumbled, I couldn't muster the energy to deconstruct it, pack it up and mail it back.
I received this item in 3 boxes that were manageable for me to get inside. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I (a 35 year old female) put this together with just me in around 3.5 hours. It went a little slower when the cocktails kicked in, but tunes and refreshments are a must. Do not over tighten anything, as it is still just pressboard. The drawers are of a lighter and not as sturdy material, but enough hardware to stabilize for quite a while, I would imagine. I still put a line of quality glue in the seam that the drawer bottom slides into for additional reinforcement. I had intended to put a sheet of plywood on top of the slats under the mattress, but skipped that upon looking at how sturdy it looked when assembled. Then a box spring and mattress. Highly recommend this bed!
The quality similar or a little better than Ikea. The wood of the drawers SUPER light weight. 2 of them was broken when I put the screw. But the customer service is excellent! Call and received replacement on the next week. BAD design!! Drawers stop by the screws on the bed frame. The designer should have designed the screws go upper, so that it won't touch the drawers and make the drawers can't close thoroughly. So, I DISLIKE this bed frame because all the drawers are not close thoroughly. This problem not only causes by the screws on the bed frame, but also the level of the bed frame. Because it's light weight, so it can goes little bit to the right or left without notice, But it shows on the drawers because they will have a large gap which can't close thoroughly.
I've only had the bed frame set up for a couple weeks, but the bed components are well made. The drawers are probably the best quality I've bought in a while they don't get stuck or fall out like my previous purchase on bed furniture. When putting it together you can tell that they designed the bed to be sturdy. It is a little lower to the ground than I thought it would be but that turned out to be better for me. Nice looking bed, good for storage and organization. Next step a headboard.

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
Hello natalie8, This bed is beautiful! This product ships in three boxes. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 15, 2013
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
