Very solid and beautiful daybed!
on August 19, 2016
This bed was packaged securely and arrived with no damage in two large, heavy, but flat boxes. It was fairly easy to put together...the key is to have two people and a box or other heavy item to prop up the end of the back piece while first attaching it to one of the bed sides. Also, be sure to look at the diagram and be sure to use the correct screws/bolts, which are labeled. The wood is a beautiful cherry and it is very solid. The slats are held together with a "ladder of fabric", so it makes it convenient to stretch them out across the bed frame and snap into place with the first slats held back by the wood forms. This bed requires only a mattress (no box spring or links). We plan to use the sliding trundle area for storage instead of for a 2nd mattress. We will place a thick cardboard piece over the slats of the trundle to create a large drawer space. So happy with this purchase for an elderly mother's small apartment! It gives her a "couch" and a bed space and creates more storage and room in her place.
