Amazon is really underrated when it comes to mens and ladies accessories, ladies handbags and perfumes, calognes and other scents. You can find great deals and the top luxury brands on Amazon

The bed took about 2 hours to put together with 2 people. It came damaged (one of the boards that you lay the mattress on itself had a corner w/ particle board broken off), and there isn’t really anything you can do about it. The molding around the bed didn’t come with holes drilled into it, but it is soft so you have to force the screws into the molding itself, all the while from the bottom up (hardest part of putting it together). Some screws don’t screw in tightly to the base boards. The molding is only held on by about 6 screws on the very edge of a board, and putting any force on it at all bends it/break it.
Overall, you get what you pay for. It is made from cheap particle board for the most part, with visible unpainted/uncovered bits at certain places. However it does its job and looks decent. Spend a few extra dollars and buy a platform bed from a local furniture store instead so you don’t risk not being able to return damaged goods and can have a real look at it.

I like this Platform bed a lot. It took a while for me to put together, only because the instructions say 2 people are needed for assembly, but knowing how I am, I proceeded to do it by myself. So for those of you who are concerned about putting it together by yourself (women especially, since I’m a woman), it can be done. It’s not necessarily hard, just time consuming (for one person) so make sure you have the time to put it together. I’ve been sleeping on it for about a month now. It really compliments the comfort of my mattress. I sleep great every night. It seems to be pretty sturdy too, so I’m not afraid that it might fall apart on me. There’s a 5 year warranty on it–not long–but I’m in a transition right now, so 5 years is about right for me. I recommend to buy this bed if you’re considering a nice, sleek, modern bed for a short period of time.
