Great overall value, stillin the cheap side. from Bloomfield Hills, MI on 02/24/2015 – Verified Buyer
So we all know how it is when you buy furniture online and it all comes in just boards and you have to sit there and scream at the instructions that they don't do them right or they're not clear enough or they're not in order. Buyer managed to put this together. Few quick issues that I have with it they have some really sharp corners if a kid dad is not perfect at staying in bed or could roll off you might want tot throw a pillow or two on the floor by them so they don't hurt themselves. The picture is s little deceiving in the it doesn't come with a headboard. Also the drawers have these really sharp pulls which could cut pretty bad if they happen to fall u them . There's a lot of sharp corners on the bed and edges so I'd Say this bed is better suited for older kids then younger ones.
Otherwise it looks great!

Exceeded expectations from Burke, VA on 08/04/2015 – Verified Buyer
This bed was purchased for my very tall 15 year old son. His room is small and he needed a desk and bookshelf. I had to get rid of the dresser and therefore had to look for a storage bed for him, at this age. He put it together in less than two hours. The drawers were smooth and the finish was very nice. The bed looks great. He put the box spring on, though unnecessary, and then the mattress. This allowed the cover to fit the bed well, without tucking it in, as pictured. He has easy access to the drawers and the bed looks neat and tidy. I tried out the bed. I think the bed gives the mattress even better support. He is thrilled and I am too.

Pros: Great value, finished nicely and accommodates my very tall, lean and strong son.
Cons: I wish I knew what headboard to buy to go with it. I hate to guess. I would like a recommendation.

Good bed so far from Pleasanton, CA on 05/12/2015 – Verified Buyer
Pleased with the bed so far , bought 2 for our boys .
Bit upset that the bookcase headboard didn't come with the bed as shown in the picture and didn't say not included at the time , also no drop down menu to purchase seperately either .

Pros: Good solid bed with draws for some storage . Bought matching products too so completes the room for the children
Cons: Not realising the bookcase headboard didn't come with it as shown in the picture .

Very pleased with this bed. from Amherst, VA on 08/12/2015 – Verified Buyer
The bed looks exactly like what was posted on website. Assembly was easily understood, but do not rush. We are very pleased with the quality, since we have purchased other pieces from another assembly required store, this item is far superior than the other.

Pros: Great value, ease of assembly, and quality.
Cons: Only one for us, we ordered a full size and bought a new mattress, the platform base is slightly larger than the mattress and could possibly cause bangs and scratches to a person's shins

Fantastic bed & headboard from Oakland, CA on 05/31/2015 – Verified Buyer
We purchased this for our daughter as her first "big girl bed" - best purchase ever. She is able to access her books and treasured belongings whenever she wants, her clothes easily fit in the drawers, it looks great, and it wasn't too difficult to assemble.

The only trouble we had with the back of the headboard was that it absorbed some of the water in the air from her humidifier when she had colds, so we had to keep an eye out for mold.

Pros: Easy assembly, looks great
Cons: Humidity absorption

Good bed for this price. from Brooklyn, NY on 12/17/2012 – Verified Buyer
I like this bed and i think the price was decent for this type of furniture. Note that It is NOT solid wood and every board is very heavy. With this said, the wood breaks easily! Assembling takes hours and unfortunately for me, 2 parts got cracked...only cosmetic damage though, but I was surprised how fragile they were (I didnt hammer them, one tipped over and fell and another, which was part of headboard, cracked while screwing it onto another board).
The drawer capacity is small. Also, drawer handles stick out, so one should be careful not getting hurt by them.
Headbord is supposed to attach to the bed, but the holes for it werent there, so I assume they should be DIY. This I didnt like, because its not as steady if it were attached.

Overall, I do like the bed and I would still purchase it. I believe its a good deal for the price for those of us on a budget. It seems pretty sturdy to me, which is what I was worried about most. One less star due to boards being easily cracked without much applied force.

Very happy with this purchase from Canada on 09/09/2012 – Verified Buyer
The product itself is exactly what I needed, and I am very happy with how it turned out. However, there were several issues with shipping, and I advise anyone looking to purchase this item to be wary of the "ship by" date. I purchased this nightstand for my new house in a different province, that I would be moving into on August 31. Wayfair said that the nightstand would be delivered around Sept. 5, so I thought I would already be in the new house by then. Unfortunately, the nightstand was delivered on August 24, resulting in many long calls with the postal service. This is great if you want it as soon as possible, but be wary if you may not be around to pick it up.
The assembly process was not too bad, although there is one part where you have to manually screw through plastic, so a drill would be useful. You will also need a hammer and a screwdriver. The bottom drawer sticks slightly, and the front got a little bit scratched up during assembly (maybe lay it down on fabric or something so that it doesn't get scratched), but other than that it is perfect.

Outstanding bed for the price from rutledge, TN on 08/12/2015 – Verified Buyer
This bed took some time to put together but is well engineered and the pieces fit exactly. Honestly i could not believe the quality for the price. My son and I put this bed together in one evening and it really exceeded my expectations. Even the pulls are weighty with a quality feel

Pros: great value,high quality for the price
Cons: none

Quality Material from Clarkson, KY on 08/07/2015 – Verified Buyer
The bed is really sturdy and it is made out of quality materials. It looks good and it was exactly what was expected.

My only complaint was that the assembly took a little longer than desired and it was sometimes confusing to find all the parts needed for each step.
