With no reviews, I took a chance and ordered this set for my 10 year old son's new room. I didn't want to crowd his room with too much furniture. These are exactly the pieces I wanted, and you really do not find a set with just these pieces (believe me, I looked). Delivery was two weeks from time of order. They did take the pieces upstairs to my son's room. The headboard box was clearly damaged, but others were fine. When I called Overstock, they were courteous and efficient in handling replacement request of headboard (still waiting for delivery on it). Here are my impressions of furniture: Headboard is beautiful - very solid and the color is deep espresso brown black. Great modern styling with low profile. Love the footboard too. Super easy to put together. Didn't like the boxspring with it -- too high for my taste and wanted it to look like the picture shown on the website. So I ordered a queen bunkie board for $59 from the local Mattress Firm to set under it. Works like a charm! You could also probably get a low profile box spring 5" or so in order to achieve the same platform look as the picture. I would NOT recommend just putting your mattress on this because there's only three cross pieces, and not super sturdy. You could also probably order a queen slat system to lay on it. Moving on....the TV stand is great, a little larger and taller than I envisioned but just perfect. Actually probably needed the size to balance the bed. The drawers pulls are modern and clean, but I had to replace one of the screws because it didn't work. The drawers do not extend out all the way, but fine for DVDs, etc. and small toys. Top 2 drawers are felt-lined. Nightstand, again certainly not heirloom quality or super rugged, but I put a piece of glass from my local glass company on it to protect the top surface. I also purchased the 4 year protection plan for $48 in the event that we have any accidental damage to have them professionally repaired. NICE BONUS: The TV stand and Nightstand come fully assembled. Overall for the price, no tax, free delivery, I am happy with this set and can see it getting him through his teenage years for sure. Truly, once the cute bedding and room was finished, it looks like alot of the stuff I've seen in Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen catalog at a fraction of the price! We were able to use the money we saved to splurge on nice bedding, cool decor and a TV. I have alot more faith that the bed will last longer and look better than the other two pieces in years to come, but would still buy it again for the value. One last thing....if you are a Costco member, they have Bayside 8 cubby room divider (warehouse only) for $109 that matched perfectly with that dark espresso color. It can stand vertical or horizontal. We used it horizontal and put all of his toys and books in the labeled canvas bins that come with it and topped it with a lamp and his pictures/trophies. His grandparents thought all of the pieces came together it matched so well.
