I ordered the Java bed in a queen size BLACK for my teenage son's room. It took several weeks to be delivered, but was well worth it. I put it together with my son in about 1-1 1/2 hours, and we aren't especially handy. Directions are easy, but just be sure you pay attention to which way you put the side rails in depending upon whether or not you plan to use a boxspring and mattress or mattress only. We did a true platform for him with no boxspring and a 12" foam mattress. He loves it! Like another reviewer said, it does sit a little higher for a platform bed, but we liked that. The only complaint I have is that I had to really look for a nightstand to go with it. Overstock did not really have anything that would look as nice as this SOLID WOOD bed, so we ended up finding a beautiful nightstand at **** that is so perfect with it and well made like the bed. It's called the Magnussen South Hampton. I know this bed is a little expensive, but I think it's totally worth it and very well made. The pictures do not do it justice. ***** has a bed almost identical that more expensive, without free delivery or tax, and not solid wood like this one.
