When I saw this online I fell in love with the look and ordered it right away. Then I started second guessing myself – how could anything so inexpensive possibly look this good. By the time it arrived I was convinced in would be a pile of junk. WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE – IT’S EVEN NICER IN PERSON!
I purchased this as a gift for my 11 year old grandson and he and I put it together. I’m 77 years old and it was easy as pie. We chose to use a Dremel tool instead of the Allen wrench, but that’s the only outside help we got.
We started with the inventory and laid everything out in order of assembly and it was a snap – the illustrated instructions were clear and concise and took us a little under an hour to get to the point where we could put the mattress on.
There’s only one thing I’d like to point out: the photo is a bit deceptive as to how the mattress fits into the frame. The photo makes it look as though the mattress sits well down into the frame, however there is no more than 1” – 2” of drop. The mattress in the photo could be no more than 5” in depth. My grandson’s mattress is 12” so we don’t get as much of the headboard showing as I would have liked, but make no mistake, I would still purchase this again.
After putting the frame together and having a bolt missing and one of the holes not lining up on one of the legs everything was fine for a bit until the rail in the right side broke and snapped one of the screws and the others just came undone it’s not worth the hassle of buying this and putting it together since it seems like a lot of them are missing parts or parts don’t fit right or it breaks within the first couple of months
