This product ships from the LA area so you can get it fast if you're local. The website says 4-6 weeks so I thought it was a mistake when the delivery company called me less than 48 hours after I ordered to schedule delivery for later in the week.I was a little hesitant to buy this item after reading the only review, but Overstock has always been great so I ordered it anyway and I'm glad I did. The bed I received exceeded my expectations. The 58 inch headboard is a little taller than I expected, but it works out well because I have a double pillow top mattress (about 20 inches) and a full height box spring. Still, after seeing the wood grain on the headboard, I'm thinking of making a trip to the local home improvement store to see if I can get some plywood decks to convert this to a platform bed so I can ditch the box spring and see the whole headboard.In person the finish is a little more of a cherry tone than the picture shows and it's absolutely beautiful.I did notice after assembling the bed that the left headboard panel seems to have shifted slightly to the right since the bed was finished, leaving about a 2 mm gap between the left headboard post and the finished surface of the panel. The unfinished area looks like it was stained black, so the factory seems to have anticipated this problem. It's definitely an imperfection, but with 2 kids and 3 dogs in the house. I suspect it will pale in comparison to the damage we do to it.Overall I feel like I've gotten a great product at a good price and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bed to friends and family.
