We bought this for our guest room because we wanted a new bed with an old feel to it. Super easy to put together. Love seeing this bed every time I walk in the room! Paired it with white chenille bedspread with a white chenille popcorn skirt. So adorable!
Nice bed for the money. The headboard is actually a brushed chenille which was a nice surprise and warms up the coldness of the metal. Knobs at top are not a big deal. Going to hang three sets of black and white stripped curtains and it's going to be amazing.
I've been watching this bed for over a year now hoping that someone would review it. I'm going to be extremely detailed on my review hoping it helps anyone else watching this bed. My home is mostly decorated with XX items - especially my lighting and furniture - kind of a casual, elegant feel. That said, there are several deals I've found on Overstock.com that have made the fit for less $$. This bed - wow. Completely fits and adds a relaxed, inviting elegance to the master bedroom and compliments my gorgeous, dark hardwood floors. My room is roughly 17'x23' and this bed fits proportionately well. I plan to put a chenille jute rug under the bed. The four extremely heavy boxes arrived quickly, The headboard had a nearly unnoticeable crack about 2-3" long. To tell you the truth, you don't see it but I quickly contacted the number on the outside of the box and another was shipped out same day. The description says the bed is hardwood covered in veneer (or laminate?). That description fits the posts only - definitely not the head or footboard. When they painted the head and footboard, some of the paint created a seamless transition in the raised panels but mostly the panels have a gap around them - nothing a little caulk doesn't hide if it bothers you. The footboard had a slight dent in one of the raised panel's trimwork. I didn't bother exchanging that - I'm not an uptight person - my style is slight distressed and it was okay with me. There was one support leg that's cracked and they're sending a replacement on that also. By the way, get the level right on those support legs (adjustable) or your bed with look tilted once it's all assembled - that was a bit of a hassle and drove me crazy to not have it right. We bought the full height box springs thinking it would be about the same height as the bed we replaced - yeah ... not true. I'm 5'7" and have to jump up into the bed and I suggested to my husband last night I may need a small stool at some point. The height would have been plenty tall with the shorter box springs. I haven't heard a creak or felt any shifting of the bed yet. My 20 year old son (6'3", 200 lbs) jumped onto the bed a few mornings ago between my husband and me (together weighing 350 lbs) and the bed didn't move (550 lbs total weight). While putting the bed together, the package contains everything you need but my husband used his own tools for ease and convenience. It took a few hours to get it together - he didn't really look at the instructions, everything made sense but the instructions were easy to follow as well. Be aware that you're going to have a TON of packaging - Styrofoam, cardboard, plastic. What I really love is that you can use the bed as a canopy bed, a four poster bed or just the headboard and footboard (yeah, there will be holes but XXXX XXXXX makes plugs that can be inserted for a finished look if you want to change up the look from time to time. There is a several inch gap between the mattress and footboard (or headboard) by the time you get it together but I like that it allows for my comforter to tuck down in without looking stuffed in there. The box springs or mattress haven't shifted with that gap. If I think of anything else, I'll update this review ...
Very happy with this bed. I bought this bed for my daughter who wanted a neautral color headboard/platform bed. I basically chose this one because it was such a good price. Was a little nervous with not being able to see it in person but, thankfully it is exactly what she wanted. She absolutely loves it! My husband said it was pretty easy to put together as well. Beautiful bed. Great purchase!
