Before I purchased this platform bed I did a live chat with one of your representatives and asked whether or not the headboard was included and I was told yes. But when I opened the box and began to put the bed together I realized there was no headboard. I was very upset because had I known I would have never ordered this particular bed. I wish I knew the name of the person I chatted with because I would like to file a complaint because I was given inaccurate information.
Waste of Money
Adam from Chester, VA– Verified Buyer
This product is terrible! We bought it because we wanted to move to a platform bed and also add some storage to our space. It was a little difficult to put together, but after it was all in place it looked great; however, after about 2 months, the main support beam in the middle of the bed snapped in half and both support beams over the drawers snapped! It is a horrible product that is poorly made!!! I will NEVER purchase something from this company again!!! What a waste of money!!!
So far, so good
Nicole from Houston, TX– Verified Buyer
Ordered 2 of these. So far they seem to be pretty good and they do look very nice in my kids rooms. Assembly looked daunting, but as I got going it wasn't so bad. It took me about 3 hours to do one myself(with interruptions from my kids). The drawers are what take a long time. If you have 1 person start the drawers while someone else does the main part, it probably wouldn't take long. I was a little concerned that they won't hold up because the tracks for the drawers are plastic, but so far seem to work just fine. The drawers don't hold quite as much as they look like they should. The sides and backs of them are not as deep as the drawer fronts make them look, they work fine for my kids stuff, but adults may not be able to fit as much. Definitely anchor them to the wall! My son already tipped one on himself. Luckily they're not super heavy and he's ok. Overall, they are good for the price, and I hope for them to last a few years.

I'm really not great at building things, so I was very nervous about putting an entire bed together (and trusting it to hold me in my sleep). It took a few hours, but my boyfriend and I managed to follow the directions and get it together in one piece! The drawers are a little difficult, but definitely worth it. The pictures on the directions were great, but there were times we both wanted a little more instruction. I think the build would have gone faster. That being said... it's incredibly sturdy, and it looks AMAZING. Even knowing how intense the building process is, I'd still buy it again.
Get what you pay for

I bought this bed after reading the reveiws thinking it would suit my needs... I have had it for around 6 months now. Below are my thoughts:
It looks good if you put it together properly
Extra storage (drawers)
Somewhat timely/painful to assemble (they make you screw through non-pre-drilled wood at some point)
Fragile - middle support and drawer supports snapped after 4 months (I do tend to fall on my bed/have more than one person in it at a time which could of put extra stress on the bed but I am average weight...)
Platform has bowed inward - could be due to the snapped supports
Conclusion: If you are looking for a cheap bed that will look good/function for around a year this is the product for you. If you want something more long term, do yourself a favor and shell out a little extra for a upgrade.
Great deal for the dollar!

Arrived with no damage and even sooner than I expected. Easily assembled - in fact, I assembled and installed it by myself even though directions recommend two people. Looks very nice and seems to be holding up well to my fat cat who likes to jump back and forth between headboard and bed!
(optional) Example: Great value, easy assembly, durable finish
(optional) Example: Not enough color options
South shore dresser
Dianna from Huddleston, VA– Verified Buyer
I purchased 3 of these while they were on sale. Have only put together 2 so far and the second one was MUCH EASIER. The directions are very long and detailed. At the beginning of each step it tells you what parts you need. Sort out the parts per the parts list before you start and make sure you have every part handy when you start a new step. There are no spare parts provided. ( although after the first one I had 3 leftover connectorsscrews and only one after the 2nd, haha). These look nice for what I paid. Would be better if the drawer glides were metal instead of plastic, but so far so good. A few small chips that I filled in with the provided marker, not worth sending back over. This was much larger than I thought it would be, I would say the drawers are a medium size. They are wide but not as deep as I would like. Overall a good purchase if you have a day to put it together.
Nice Chest Dresser
Tyler from Clinton, NY– Verified Buyer
I'm fairly happy with the dresser. It looks very nice once it's completed and didn't take as long to assemble as I originally thought it would. The instructions do suggest not to use a drill which makes putting the drawers a little difficult to put together. Also, the sliders are plastic guide sliders that you have to hammer into the drawers and sides. This was a little difficult to do. I would have preferred metal ones with wheels. Finally, one note, the instructions suggest not putting a TV or anything on the top of the dresser due to tipping risk. It's not the best quality but it is fairly inexpensive and looks very nice once it's completed. I would suggest buying it assuming you don't have any plans to put things on top or put anything too heavy in the drawers.
Like it but it was a pain to put together.
Patty from Vandalia, IL– Verified Buyer
It is a nice frame but it came in about a million pieces and the instructions were only pictures, no words. Also there were about 5 different types of screws that weren't labeled. You would look at the instructions that showed a picture of a screw with a number by it, but none of the bags of screws were actually labeled. Took hours to put together. We started at 6:30 and by 10:30 finally had it together. Also the drawers seem hard to open once the bed is together with the mattress on but it may be because we have thick carpet.
good for the price
Lindsay from utah– Verified Buyer
My only disappointment with this is that my king mattress comes right to the edge on both sides. I thought the bed would be a little wider than the mattress. I should've taken measurements, I just assumed that from the pictures. It's a good bed for the price though. It's nothing fancy or something that I'm so in love with, but I do think I got what I paid for. I like the storage drawers and it is sturdy enough and it does look good. I chose this bed because I custom designed a headboard so this is an excellent choice for that as it does not include the headboard.
