I paid over $600 for a full size platform bed on another website a couple of years ago. When I saw this king size platform bed at an unbeatable price (under $300!) I nearly fell out of my chair and couldn't snap one up fast enough! I love that I didn't have to get box springs for my new mattress! (You can use box springs if you have them or want a higher bed.) If you've ever assembled anything you'll see immediately how it goes together, I did it by myself in a little over a half an hour. It looks great, goes together easily, I have nothing bad to say about this. The finish is nice, love the color, love the low profile of the bed. It shipped via UPS ground and the only trouble I had was that it wouldn't deliver to my work zip code or my home zip code, but it could be delivered to my friends' house ten miles away in another zip code? So I had to go pick it up in a borrowed mini van. Otherwise? Problem free!
