4.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous bed, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Julian Bowen Versailles Daybed (Kitchen & Home)
I really love this bed. I spent the evening putting it together and (although I have to say, the instructions are awful - I wish manufacturers would use words, not just dreadful drawings with numbers and letters all over them) even though two people are supposed to do it, I found I could do it myself - I used a little stool to be the other "pair of hands" and that worked just fine.
Only two small gripes (and the reason for four rather than five stars) - one of the screw holes wasn't quite round - it has a little bump of metal on the thread that makes it impossible to get one of the screws in very far. I tried a few different screws and took it out and re-aligned it a few times, in case it was more to do with my competence. However, I've managed to get all the other screws in fine, and there really is an extra little bump of metal which presumably stuck on when the part was cast (if that's how it's made). Fortunately the screw/hole is not in a place that compromises the structure, and the fact that the screw is only half in is barely visible. The other minor gripe is to do with instructions - and this often goes for a lot of self-assembly stuff. Please, whoever prints these things - we can read. Put words as well as pictures for those of us that like precise instructions rather than de-coding awful artwork!!
The bed looks beautiful, is very comfortable with the memory foam mattress that Julian Bowen supply, and I'm very glad I bought it.
