Takes two people and more than a couple of hours to assemble. Be sure to follow the instructions included and use the online video, included with the pictures of the bed, on the Overstock website. Otherwise, connecting the bed to the upright frame can be a real challenge. If you are installing this over carpet, check to make sure the bed doors clear the bottom cross support when the bed is closed, otherwise the doors will rub on it. I had to screw the bottom cross piece to the floor to prevent rubbing. I suggest overlapping two pieces of VELCRO, attached to the inner bed frame, across the center of the mattress to secure it in place. Not sure yet if the laminate material is strong enough to sustain regular use over a long period of time.
the color is not exactly as pictured. After ordering "black walnut," I was expecting black, but the color is definitely NOT black. It's much lighter, reminding me of oil rubbed bronze fixtures. We kept the bed anyway, since returning it would be a hassle, but were disappointed in the color. Also, the assembly was a struggle. My husband even had the help of a couple of handymen, and it took over an hour. All that said, I still like the bed; it looks good and the price was nice.
We ordered three of these beds for our mountain house and they couldn't have been more perfect! Easy to assemble, nice finish and sturdy design. These beds look far more expensive than the price we paid. The bronze color mixes very nicely with oil rubbed bronze. Beds were packaged well and directions easy to follow.
This was the perfect bed for our teenage son. It is high enough that storage boxes fit underneath and has simple, classic lines. My only complaint is that there are already a few scuff marks on the wood rails from when he sits on the bed and rests his shoes on the rails. It seems to rub the finish off pretty easily.
