We had no problem assembling this bed using an electric screwdriver and also we rolled each of the screws into a bar of soap before screwing them into their location and this makes them go in so easily. There are some places you will need to make your own holes and an electric screwdriver works like a gem. The headboard is a bit wobbly but when we pushed the bed against the wall it holds nice and sturdy. If you are not planning on having your headboard against a wall you will have a wobbly headboard.My only compliant is the odor. It does smell like mildew and it has been one week and still is quite strong. I have not tried to wash it with anything and read someone's review who had tried bleach and other products without luck. I will try an air freshner of pine or cedar and see if that helps tone it down. I have the Grey bed and it is really beautiful for our guest room.
I am VERY pleased with this bed, and our experience ordering from Overstock. This is a heavy, solid bed, but fairly easy to assemble. Not difficult at all with two people. I assembled most of it myself; it went much faster when my husband jumped in to help. The finish is beautiful - perhaps darker than it appears in photos, but I love it. Drawers are sturdy, operate smoothly and appear to have cedar wood bottoms. Beautiful, rustic pewter look drawer handles. I am so pleased. This was half the price of similar solid wood beds I looked at locally and it's just as nice. We couldn't be be happier! ( NO BOX SPRING required for the storage bed. It's a sturdy slat platform.) It took a few weeks for delivery, but that was expected. Their order tracking system is excellent and the shipping service was prompt and professional.
Sat Aug 18 2012 12:19:33 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time) Wonderful, solid twin bed frame. Assembly is simple and straightforward. It nicely fits my Blueberry 7-inch Twin-size Memory Foam Mattress (http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Blueberry-7-inch-Twin-size-Memory-Foam-Mattress/5581364/product.html). Many reviewers likely review this relative to youth/adolescent use but, I am an adult male and I am very happy with this bed. It sits low, as per the description, and I love the height. Ok, I am 5'3" 200 lbs (*) with short legs. *_* The slats are tied together; something I didn't expect but was excited to see upon unboxing. This helped greatly during assembly. I love my frame & mattress combination.
