I was hoping that the desk would be very shiny, almost laquer like, but it looks fairly dull up close. However, it does look pretty shiny from far away. If I had seen the desk in person, I might not have bought it. It is a good value for the price and very sturdy and easy to put together, but I was going for a more modern look that I don' t think this captures.
I have an Expresso writing desk and needed a printer stand. This was the perfect size and color. You'd never know it was intended to be a nightstand.
If you have put together furniture before, assembly of this piece will be a snap. The instructions and illustrations are very easy. There were even quite a few extra pieces of hardware included, just in case.
I am VERY satisfied with the product. It is sturdy and looks great. It surpassed my expectations.
WARNING: The sides of the the drawers split easily if you tighten the screws too tightly. When working with tapered-head screws, it is customary to tighten them down until they are flush with the wood surface. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS WHEN ATTACHING THE DRAWER BACK TO THE SIDES OF THE DRAWER - THE HOLES ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE END OF THE BOARDS THAT THEY WILL SPLIT.
The only other disappointing thing is the use of plastic caps over the screws that pass through the sides of the night stand. They don't match the wood color all that well and detract from an otherwise excellent appearance. But this is being picky. Most people never even notice.
Excellent Product for a great price
I read the reviews on all of this furniture. Some people just bashed the hell out of it. I think you have to remember that this is not Chippendale. I have assembled a lot of this type of furniture and this is better quality than others i have dealt with. The instructions are good (could be better)but easy to follow. I assembled all of it by myself, It was not hard to do and with experience you learn some tricks. I used wood glue and lock tight during assembly and i took my time. If you rush and take short cuts it will fall apart. I like the finished product it is exactly as described.
This really is good value. It comes in three boxes and took about 3 hours to put together. It's easy enough as long as you've put flat packed furniture together before. I always glue the flat bottoms for the draws in, as I have found that for this kind of furniture the draw bottoms bend over time. Its worth noting that you can build this bed with the draws on either side, which is handy.
There are two things I think they could improve about this bed, but they are minor: The main bolts which are visible on the outside of the bed have been coated with white. However because they are together in a bag in transit, they have rubbed and many have big scratches where the white covering has scraped off. They should tape them together so that doesn't happen. The second thing is the width of the bed doesn't exactly match the gap between the headboard, they're just half an inch different size. This just seems a strange thing, like it was never designed to go with this bed. It's one of those little things that bugs me, but I think as I built it I'm the only one who noticed, once it has a mattress on it and it's made up you can't notice it.
One other thing to be aware of, although it's a standard 'twin' i have realised now its made up that it's not long enough for a large adult. This bed is in our babies room for when she gets older, but we want the occasional guest to use it to, and for most it will be fine, but for my tall father its not going to be big enough. If you expect any large adults to use it you need to go look for a Twin XL.
Arrived quickly. Put it together in less than an hour with a screw driver & hammer. Everything was included, all holes drilled in the right spot. Easy, easy. It's very cute in my granddaughters room. Quality is appropriate for the price. It's not solid hardwood - but it's also not $XXX. I'm going to order another. Just to clear something up though - the twin bed will not fit into the opening under the book case. There is a support panel there. You also cannot attach the bed frame - this is a free standing unit. The mattress/ box spring slide up against the unit.
This bunk bed is a very high quality item. The manufacturer has done a very good job eliminating items that could easily break or not hold up. It did take over an hour to assemble the item but is worth the time! The bed looks awesome in my boys room and was a much more reasonable price than anything else I saw. Thank you Overstock!
My lounge cushion arrived today! all I wanted to do is lounge around on it all day! It fits my papasan chair and looks quite nice there, and it also is super fun to just lay on the floor with! A great deal! The fabric is nice heavy duty stuff, not too stiff though. The cover is removable and washable and it zips closed so it's not going to come undone like velcro closures might. I just love it!!!!
I purchased this bed for my tall and still growing teenage son. He was all arms and legs hanging off a regular twin size bed. Putting a queen size or greater bed in his room was not an option. It is very difficult to find the twin xl size in just any local furniture store. It generally has to be a special order. I am very pleased with this platform bed. It was a good value all around. The bed is well made and attractive for the price. It is a very nice design for a teenager. The added drawers on the bottom is a great bonus. It was easy to put together. My son was able to do it! I also purchased the matching dresser and nightstand and it all looks great! I highly recommend this bed.
i bought this bed for my teenage daughter.i was very impressed with how quickly i got delivery and was even more impressed when the deliveryman offered to open the boxes for me and help me inspect the merchandise before acceptance. it's a very nice bed; i was able to put it together myself in about an hour. my daughter sleeps on it every night and loves it. the ONLY flaw with this bed is that the manufacturer or overstock should indicate that this bed is for an extra long twin mattress. my regular twin leaves about 6 inches open at the bottom or top so we have a pillow stuffed in the space to close the gap. otherwise i feel this is a nice piece of furniture for the price.definitely recommend this bed for a spare room or child's room.
I was a little hesitant ordering this bed based on the reviews I'd read because some complained that bed arrived in poor condition and/or with missing pieces, and many complained that the instructions were difficult to interpret. I am pleased to say that my experience with this product was excellent in all respects. The bed arrived in two boxes with no missing pieces. There was a small defect in one of the end pieces due to damage during shipping, but it was hardly noticeable. The instructions were very easy to understand and the bed was quite easy to put together. I took about two hours to build the bed frame, and next night I spent about another two hours putting the drawers together. The drawers fit perfectly and stay closed when pushed in. Overall, I am thrilled with this bed. While it's just constructed pressed board with a black finish (pretty cheap material), it looks great, offers a lot of extra storage, is sturdy, and it's a very good price.
Easy Installation and looks very high quality for the price. It's a great buy for the money. Only complaint is that the description is a bit misleading. It states the bed can convert to a full size bed when in fact the parts it comes with only alllows it to convrert to the daybed. The rails for the conversion to a full size bed must be bought separatley. The rails for the conversion are approx $70.00
After much debate on what direction to go with decorating a guest room I finally chose to go with a crisp, clean, airy, sparse look. I wanted efficient use of limited space so thought the bookcase headboards would be multi-functional. Ordered 2 headboards for two beds in the room. Delivery was quick. The boxes were HEAVY so be prepared for that. I was able to scoot them into the front door but it was not easy. If you can lift 75 pounds (I think) or have someone around who can you want have a problem. I couldn?t carry or drag the boxes up to the bedroom so I took it up piece by piece. All holes were pre-drilled to perfection. Not a scratch or dent on anything. Packaging was great. Downside: I put together and took apart the first headboard 3 different times. YES, 3 TIMES..... grrrr. The instruction sheet should have been produced by a more thoughtful, detailed oriented person (a first grade teacher comes to mind). My advice is to lay out all parts and put it together in your mind before you actually do the attachments. It was easy for me to put sides on backwards, put the center stabilizer on backwards, put a piece or two on upside down etc.... The problem was somehow it fit while I was doing it wrong and it looked ok until it was close to completion.
Here?s the good part. After making all possible mistakes on the first headboard the second headboard took me a TOTAL of 15 minutes to fully assemble. It was a SNAP! By then I wished I had several more to put together. Number two was FUN! They are better looking than I had imagined. Sturdy, crisp, neat. Being they are used in a guest room they will last forever. I suspect they would hold up well even with kid use. Oh, another thing I liked was the lack of smell. No strong wood or chemical odors. A very faint clean smelling wood. Nothing strong. Overall I am VERY HAPPY with both headboards and my guest room looks great. Just be aware of those inconsiderate assembly instructions.
Very well built, sturdy and quite adequate. When I changed to a new sized bed and got a different headboard, I really missed this one and all the space it gave me! Well worth the price, just don't drop the heavy box it comes in on your foot, I lost a toenail when I did!!
Good quality. Comfortable to sit in, even an adult, once you get the beans in the right place in the bag. Great shape to make a seat that supports your back and neck for video watching or game playing. kids love them!
