Nice headboard; legs too long
The headboard is well made, elegant and comes with excellent instructions. I bought it in white. The color is warm off-white, not quiet cream, and the fabric has nice texture to it. Unfortunately, the legs on my white headboard are black. I have low ceiling in my daughter's room, so I wanted to bring the headboard lower. Once I adjusted the height, the legs of the headboard are sticking out ABOVE the headboard. We cut them shorter, and I painted them white, I just do not understand why I had to do it myself, why the manufacturer made holes for lower headboard position but did not bother to check that the legs are sticking out once this option is used. As usual with Overstock, the shipping was fast, product well packaged, and the price is competitive.
Don't expect to fit a twin size mattress
I love the look and sturdiness of this bed. In the picture it looks very dark, and it is, but there's a definite browness to it. You won't mistake it for black. The dark brown material covers the headboard where it's above the platform, the sides, and the footboard outside, top, and a bit inside. The rest of the surfaces, expected to not be visible, are black cloth. The sleek elegant curve of the headboard is exactly as pictured, which I really like. The height is low, just perfect. I am so happy I waited to receive the bed before looking around for a new mattress. The inner mattress space is exactly 76.0x43.0 inches, and sits about 4.5 inches deep in the sideboards. The typical 75 inch long, 38-39 inch wide twin mattresses are definitely a misfit. For now I put an old regular twin mattress inside, and it looks horrible. Like a bed inside a bed. Slats are visible on all sides. So, if you like and buy this bed, prepare to order a custom-size mattress. Overstock won't be useful for that. I found a local store that would do custom sizes, but after all my searching I ended up ordering online.
Bed is gorgeous and sturdy and looks beautiful in my daughters room. I took off a star because the support beams were a pain to get in but I guess that's what comes with sturdy. I do like that you can also adjust height of bed so as my daughter grows older we can raise it.
