This bed frame showed up in two very large and intimidating boxes, but my husband and I were able to carry them up the stairs. The only problem with shipping was that part of the top of one of the boxes had ripped off en route and the carrier had taped over the hole. Nothing appeared to be damaged, but unfortunately we think that some of the hardware to assemble the frame must have fallen out of the hole at some point. Rather than wait to request that Overstock send another bag of hardware, we took a trip to Lowe's and were able to find all the screws and nuts and things that we needed. Kind of a pain but again, I think this was the fault of the shipper and we were just too impatient to wait. The actual assembly of the bed was a piece of cake. I LOVE a sturdy metal piece of furniture that can be assembled entirely with an Allen wrench! And let me tell you, this frame isn't going ANYWHERE. This is no Ikea bed frame (sorry Ikea). There are a LOT of metal support bars and the thing doesn't wobble at all. We put it on the lower setting and are using box springs and a mattress. It's the perfect height. I have a feeling this frame is gonna last forever. Lastly, it looks great. Very modern with nice clean lines. My friend says it looks just like a Crate and Barrel frame she wants that costs upward of $1000 more. We are so pleased with this purchase--we finally have an 'adult bed'!!
