This item was what I expected. Nothing fancy but useful for a student roommate who needs the extra shelf space for books. Actually, it's more of a bookcase than a headboard. Unfortunately, it came with absolutely NO assembly instructions. If not for my engineering-minded daughter, I never would have figured out how to put it together! I'm still not sure where to use the L brackets. Otherwise, it looks good in the room.
Unlike most furniture that I have put together this came with no identifying marks or numbers on the pieces (A,B,C, etc...) so I had to figure out which piece by the picture. Not difficult, but inconvenient. Also, there are no screw holes to attach a bed frame so we had to create our own - had to make a Lowe's run for the right length screws. We opted to not nail the back piece on the shelves - works just fine. Finished product looks nice - perfect for child's room or guestroom.
This is a great piece of furniture for your first apartment. A spot nicer then college furniture, but certainly not something that you would want to be in a master bedroom. When my fiancee and I leave this apartment after getting married, this bed will be going in the guest bedroom, but it is just not good enough for our Master suite. It tilts a little, but that could be the old brownstone that we are in. It is also bowed a little and there are basically cardboard backers on the shelves. All in all, for the price it was fine, but when it comes down to it I would only reccomend with reservations.
I bought the entire set, headboard, 12 drawers and end tables for my daughter. The storage is perfect for her. The bed appears to be a little high but its worth it for the storage room. It took her and I almost an entire day to put all of the pieces together but the instructions were intuitive and the product is heavy so we needed help getting it to her room. However i was pleased with how sturdy everything is once put together. IT looks great and surprisingly her room is still clean!
Perfect for a teenager's bedroom. Gives her the space to store all of her "stuff" and still keep the room looking neat. Not fancy but sturdy and was what I expected. I was nervous about other reviews saying assembly was hard, but was happily surprised. The directions were great. My 15 yo daughter put it together herself!
I wanted some storage for books and my clock radio this provided the space I was looking for

This is exactly as described in the other reviews. It wasn't difficult to put together. All the parts were there and the pre-drilled holes were in the correct places. I put it together alone and it took about 2 hours from start to using it. It's what I needed for the bedroom it's in. I have no problems with it at all. When it's in back of the bed, it actually looks better than I expected. It isn't a great piece of furniture....but who cares? I sure don't. I didn't pay a huge amount for it and I feel it was worth the money.

This was by far the easiest piece of furniture I have ever put together. From the packaging to the last screw it was so simple. The box is well padded and the instructions are simple to follow, picture as step by step instructions. It's hard at first to tell if the diagram is showing you the front finished side of the piece or the back, but once you get the hang of it...you are minutes from completion. Looks great and should hold up for the next 5 - 6 years.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The head board is made of black laminate over particle board. Just right for a teen bed room.

This headboard is sturdy, looks good and DOES fit for a queen bed. When it says full/queen you may not be sure, but this one does fit nicely with a queen bed. Happy with our purchase and son loves having shelves and storage area, especially for reading at night. Customer Service at Overstock is the BEST! Great to work with. Thanks!

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this headboard. The MDF is pretty solid and the unit is holding up well. I do have some questions about the design choices. The legs are formed by two pieces of MDF coming together forming a right angle. However, only 1 piece touches the floor. I've look at it over and over and there's no way I could have made a mistake. The design is just weird. It's the same on both the left and right legs. Secondly, the middle shelf only goes half way deep. It's a curious design. Minor, but curious. Third, I recommend anyone purchasing this to get a furniture pen (I used a black sharpie and works fine) for touch ups. The veneer is quite thin, thinner than other flat-pack furniture I've bought. summary: For the money, this is a pretty good deal. Unlike others on this site that have really unreasonable expectations, this product is priced fairly for what you get.
