Purchased to redo my father's bedroom and we are all impressed with the looks and sturdiness. Would buy again for sure! Easy to assemble. I am a 54 year old female who put it together by myself....I do a lot of things, however this was easy nonetheless.
I am a 57 year old women who was a previous owner of a waterbed which I had for 25+ years, but due to constant back problems, thought it was time for a regular bed. The 3 packages came within a week of ordering. They were heavy! But I managed. I hired a man to disassemble my waterbed and asked him how much it would cost to reassemble my new bed. He said $50. But, in order to save some $, I decided to give it a try. Well, let me tell you, if you don't have a lot of patience, or if you haven't had several glasses of wine, you won't like how long it takes to put this bed together. I had the day off from work due to Tropical Storm Fay, and decided to give it a try. I started around 5:00 pm and finally finished at 11:30 PM. Exhausted, but very pleased with myself with my accomplishment! I was very surprised by all the reviews I read and thought I would need special tools. I borrowed a rubber mallet, which is definitely needed to bang in the trowels and I already owned an electric drill, so that is all that was needed. I did use a small rubbermaid stool that someone else suggested in the reviews to hold the footboard when you assembled the headboard which was a big help! All the reviews are correct that state it is a big pain to use the hex wrench that is provided, but I did manage. So, to make a long story short, it is do able even if you are putting it together by yourself. I also ordered the 10 inch memory foam which is simply perfect with the bed. Especially after using a waterbed after all those years, I was very skeptical, but it was the best move I have ever donel The bed looks beautiful and I am a very happy customer. Thanks, Overstock!
This bed is sturdy and looks great. It was easy to put together but you definitely need 2 people working together. The manufacturers website has a great instructional video.
We were looking for a modern update for our guest room. This bed is contemporary and sleek. The light grey metal works well with the neutral color scheme. We were able to find a white chest with grey metal handles that goes great with the bed. We're very happy with the quality as well.
