Got tired of the dark wooden furniture and opted to go “All White Everything”! I browsed for about a month when finally I decided, this bed had everything needed to design my new shabby chic boudoir. I especially loved that with making the purchase through Overstock, s/h was still only $2.95. The package was delivered on time as promised and in 2 boxes. I’m 5’3 and was strong enough to push and pull the boxes to prepare my assembly. Starting with the Headboard, which stands at about 52.75 inches high, which includes the 9 inch feet attachments, I lined up the holes for the screws and was done in less than 10 minutes. The bed footboard & side panels were a little heavier. The wooden planks will definitely give you a splinter if you’re not careful. I carefully laid everything out and assembled the bed together according to the instructions all by myself in about an hour. (Had a minor medical procedure done earlier that day too). She’s quite lovely for the price!! If you are someone looking for more head board (like me), please be aware that the picture shows a queen mattress without the box spring. The box spring will show if you include it in your ensemble. Be sure to have bedding or a King sized comforter that will tuck along the inner sides of the panels to remedy that. I believe the bed was manufactured with more width than a normal queen bed frame to allow room for tucking your sheets and comforter sets, as shown in the picture. This doesn’t bother me one bit. I enjoy seeing more white leather side panels and footboard anyway. The bed sits pretty high though, with the mattress and box springs, and probably hits +30 inches from the ground. The side panel does not allow much room for under carriage storage, but that decreases the chances of clutter. You will not need the metal queen rails from your old bed so be prepared to somehow tuck them under the bed still standing, as I miraculously accomplished (later lifting the already assembled bed one side at a time) or store them away all together. That’s it. She’s a beauty!! I love looking at her and received a bunch of compliments thus far. With a really fun hue on the headboard wall, 2 white side tables, white tv console and white curtains, I am good to go! Thanks Overstock!! I'm HAPPY!
