I needed a full size bed to replace a beautiful, but old, pine 4 poster (tall) that broke where the rails hooked the post. Very expensive to repair. Not many full sized beds in stores, so I tried Overstock. Great variety. I love this bed! The posts are substantial and sturdy with a very colonial color stain which matches my other bedroom pieces well. The iron (powdercoated paint, I think) filigree head and foot boards are about an inch thick and very attractive. The frame is very sturdy. Assembly by me alone was easy and fast. My sons thought I was crazy ordering a bed online, but I am thrilled with my purchase. Everyone who has seen it loves it too.
