When my husband and I decided to replace and upgrade our bed, we shopped locally for a mattress and frame. We saw this great-looking bed for $550 on sale locally. I decided to check on here to see if we could find something similar, and we found this bed, which appears to be the exact same one as what we saw in the store. We ordered it, and it arrived in 3 boxes. When we opened them, we were both a little concerned because the frame looked thin. We are both heavy people, and neither one of us wanted to feel the bed collapsing while we slept. We decided to put it together and see how it worked out. The directions are much easier to follow than they first appear and it only took us about 15 minutes to put the whole bed together. Once we added the mattress and box springs, we discovered that it is solid (just like the other reviews stated). We are both comfortable sleeping on it - no worries it will collapse now! The bed looks great and we couldn't be more pleased with the purchase. Thanks Overstock for a great product at a great price!!
