Good 'quality', but color's off
I ordered this for my 4 yr old son. The overall quality (sturdiness, durability) is pretty good, especially for the price. My son LOVES it... BUT the colors are WAY off!! I viewed the bed & color options from 2 phones & 3 different computers (was trying to match to other existing furniture. And aware that stuff can 'appear different' on different devices). Well the color I wanted (pine) was pretty similar on all the devices. So I was confident in that choice. After arriving (assembled by the hubby while we were gone= Christmas present). I was VERY disappointed in the color!!! The ACTUAL color is the one they show for walnut. I double checked box packaging, numbers & words all= pine. Not sure if wrong wood got in wrong box, or what?!?! But no stores around me carry these or different wood colors. So I have no way of comparing or disputing (besides me saying looked at it on 5 devices prior). Now my son has & loves it, but it matches NOTHING!! And now his room looks like a hodge podge of wood colors. :(XansMommy
Ok for the price/ not heavy duty
I like the simple design and the finish color (light cherry), BUT the wood it's made of is that kind of white wood that gets dented easily by finger nail. The finish is just one layer and not smooth allover the bed. Also the way each foot (post) is to be joined to the head/footboard cross is weak due to that the screw goes into the wood and there is no metal barrel nut to make the connection sturdy. I already massed up one hole that became too wide for the screw by tightening it too much. Don't do same mistake! The package is not what it's supposed to be for a heavy piece of furniture. It came in carton box that is glued and nothing holding it together on the outside in case the glue cracks, mine came cracked open (photos)Bahhaziz
Great Bunk Bed
Summary of our experience:
The delivery men only brought the box in the door (understandable... the box was HEAVY), they did not carry it to the room; so if you cannot lift/drag 200+ pounds you'll need some help. My husband and I were okay, I actually dragged the box to our boys' room myself. There are a LOT of parts so gather your tools, take a deep breath, try to overcome the feeling of immediate intimidation, take another a deep breath, and get 'er done... it'll all pay off in the end. Our instructions for both the mattresses and bed were in Spanish only; that was no major setback, we were able to get the bed up and running in no time and are extremely pleased with our purchase! If you are looking for a reasonably priced, very nice and sturdy bunk bed look no further... Hurry up and Buy!MrsJBo
Beautiful bed, excellent price!
We love this bed. My 2 and 7 year old boys share a room and they really needed a bunk bed for space. We researched a million beds, finishes, styles and more before deciding on this one. The cherry was masculine and I knew it would be easy to match other bedroom furniture to it (dresser, nightstand,etc) It arrived site to store just 4 days after I ordered it which was really nice. The assembly was very easy. My husband and I laid all the parts out and none were cracked or missing. The finish is beautiful and true to the picture. Everything feels very heavy and solid. The instructions were easy (although we are pretty used to assembling furniture and this is the second set of bunk beds we've put together so we knew what to expect) and we had the beds assembled in an hour. I'm 6 months pregnant too and I did most of the assembly, he did the lifting.
The bottom bunk has enough space with a standard twin mattress that I can comfortably sit on the bed without bumping my head (I'm 5 foot 1 inch) so I know that my younger son will be able to sleep there for many years. The whole bed when stacked feels very strong, there is almost no movement. Nobody ever believes me when I tell them what we paid for them. They look like they cost four times as much from a furniture store. Very happy with them and my boys love them.HomeschoolMom02
Good beds with one possible hurdle to get through.
This seems to be a very well made bunk bed set except for one thing.....in the set we got, they didn't drill the holes for the barrel nuts deep enough so the bolts and the nuts did not line up on three of the eight places that took the barrel nuts. I had to call my son who is a handy man to bring his power tools and fix the issue. All he did was find out the problem and then took a drill bit the right size and with his hand turned it a couple times and then it was properly lined up. It wasn't off by much but just enough for the Allen wrench could not get the job done. Before that we were trying to get those bolts in for over an hour. Very frustrating. But once in, the rest of the beds went together fine. However, do plan on spending 3 to 4 hours putting these together with the allen wrench supplied. And you will need a phillips screw driver. Power tools helped get these beds together SO much faster. Once together they seem like very sturdy nice beds. I love the fact the slats that support the mattresses are screwed into the frame. I have had many beds before where the slats would fall out of the bed frame. This feature makes the beds sturdier. I have seen where some say these beds get wobbly after some use. I would think it might depend on how the beds are used and how rowdy kids are on them. After all it is a put it together yourself set. And for that type of kids furniture it is a very good deal. Instructions were fairly clear as well. The one side panel was dented, but not enough damage to require a return. All in all I am very satisfied with these beds.CLW51
