REVIEW
I bought this frame because I was never allowed to have a race-car bed when I was a kid, and now that I’m old, I want to build a fort. I plan to drape it in completely with curtains, and suspend a TV from the top of the foot of the bed using chain that would hang a porch swing. The back of the headboard is a perfect place to clip a reading lamp as well. I noticed that user “ironysidea” has a chip on their shoulder about this product but provides no constructive feedback about why it’s poor.

ASSEMBLY:
This took about 2 hours to put together, working by myself steadily but not hard. If you have a drill with hexagon attachments, you will save a lot of time; most of my assembly time was in tightening screws. The engineering for assembly is good. Each different screw length is also a different width, so you can never use the wrong screw. The Amazon photos don’t show the 8 triangular braces at the 4 corners. The clips at the end I planned to clip and then slide to the middle of the slats; this didn’t work — follow instructions. A straightforward, if time-consuming build.

AESTHETICS:
The grey color is not almost black like the pictures, but still very dark. There are no runs in the paint or scratches. The slats around the top are 2″ x 1″, so 6″ total around. Dividing by Pi gives us 1.9″, which tells us that any curtain that can take a 2″ diameter rod will fit around the slats.I put a heavy 12″ memory foam mattress on the frame and it feels exceptionally sturdy. The 12″ mattress goes flush with the first rung of the headboard.

LONGEVITY:
I’ve only just put this frame together but feel it will last a lifetime. I’m moving in a month and will have to disassemble and transport it. Much of it will be able to stay intact though. I’ll update the review when I see how it travels, and how long it lasts…
