The bed was easy to assemble with the directions. I did everything but the drawers by myself and I was extremely glad the drawers were already put together. It took me 2 hours without help but I've difficulty standing and had to sit in a chair while I put pieces together and scoot around the bed. I still was able to do it because the it's easy to assemble. It was just like the picture when finished and I'm pleased with the quality so far. Let's see what happens after 6 months.
While this bed so far seems decently designed and well executed, be aware that if you buy the 6 drawer version of this bed, only one side of your bed has drawers. The other side is completely open.... useless unless you plan to put this bed against the wall. The wood of the bed seems sturdy and of good quality, although there is minimal hardware holding all the pieces together, and I'm mildly concerned about the structural soundness of it all. The drawers come assembled, and 3 of the 6 drawers had cracked and peeling bottoms upon bringing them out of the box- not great quality. They drawer piece attaches to the bed frame with a chinsey corner bracket on both bed posts. Not to mention that when you order this product from Overstock, it comes to you in a freight shipment because of the large size and weight of the boxes. Oh, and the cardboard boxes arrive in a HUGE WOODEN CRATE.... That the shipping company will leave on the side of the road outside of your dwelling and refuse to take back with them. So not only do you have to deal with disposing of a HUGE wooden crate, unless you paid the large extra sum of money for an in home delivery, you have to deal with getting these large and super heavy boxes into your home. This whole experience made me question Overstock's practices as well - consequently this bed is also available on *** So, if you're willing to deal with cracked drawers, disposal of wooden shipping crate, and want to put the open side of your bed against your wall... then this is the bed for you! Frankly, I'm wishing I kept shopping.
Takes a few days to fluff it up to its full sjze, but worth the wait... so popular at my house, that the kids pefer it to the traditional furniture. So happy with this purchase, I ordered 2 more!
