This bed is very nice once put together, with two exceptions. The headboard is NOT that much taller than the footboard in the pictures. Also the picture of this is very misleading. This is obviously taken with a matress only, if that. With my box springs and matress the footboard is only 2 inches above the matress and the headboard is maybe 8. It changes the look of the bed frame and I really don't like it all. Also, the bedframe is a full 6 inches BIGGER than my standard king size matress! This is the first time we've owned a king size bed and so first time we've purchased a king size frame. It appears to me that most king size bed frames are made for both standard and california king size matresses. This is unacceptable. Our pillows keep falling inbetween the deep gaps. I am truly unhappy with this product. Not because of how it is made, it really is nicely put together, the finish is pretty and it seems like a very sturdy well made product. I am displeased with the picture that was presented of it cause it looks NOTHING like it. I am also displeased that it is so much bigger. If there had been a more realistic picture I would never have purchased it. I will be posting it on ***t very soon.
