The price fits the budget which is why I chose it and there aren't that many bookshelf headboard out in the market so I did not have that many choices... it took a while for it to get delivered to me because it came all the way from CALIFORNIA... so be advised that it could come with some damages and in my case it did (very minor; on a spot that would not be seen once installed)... instructions were easy enough to follow but you will definitely need a second person to help.(Note: this headboard was not my "dream" headboard so I was not expecting much)
My son wanted a bookcase headboard. One piece was damaged in shipping, but they replaced it no problem. You really have to be careful putting it together, I damaged 2 other pieces which I need to repair just trying to set it up. But it doesn't look bad, just not that durable.
I bought this and had it sent to my daughter and her husband. They did spend several hours putting it together but are very pleased with the look and quality. Would recommend it to anyone. There is plenty of storage. There were a few scratches but she was able to use the enclosed marker and concealed them easily, she said.
I did have to get the backer board replaced (was cracked) and had two right sides and no left so had to wait for the backer board and left side to be shipped. My friend helped me assemble the last part but I was able to put most of it together by myself. I really like the way it looks and very pleased.
Product arrived promptly. It was packaged well so that damage was unlikely to occur. The pieces and parts were all included and the directions were clear. When complete, the product looked exactly as it was pictured on the web site. I will continue to make purchases through Overstock.com because of the reasons mentioned.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this headboard considering the low price. I put it together by myself in a reasonable amount of time without any difficulty whatsoever. The color is very rich and the headboard looks much more expensive than it is. I would recommend this headboard to anyone who is in the market for a storage-type of headboard. Due to the configuration of my room, I needed an alternative to a bed with a night stand. This headboard is perfect for it's purpose. Thank you Overstock.com for being such a great company with fabulous deals!
Received headboard quickly. I expected it to be a little more sturdy, but its a good deal for the price. Asembly wasn't too bad, although the included instructions can be a little confusing at times; differentiating pieces from one another, I mean. Overall, good value for the price. Thanks Overstock
The package arrived with one board broken. A week later the replacement arrived. The instructions are not quite right in one area but was fixed. The unit looks ok, had hoped for better quality particle board. The representatives from overstock where wonderful in keeping up to date as to the progress of the broken piece.
Nice headboard to go with the platform bed, by the same company. I understand others had problems putting it together, we encountered none, it was together in 15mins! All the hardware was included, it looks nice and is well made. I would certainly recommend it and I see no reason it won't last for quite some time.
The bed was pretty easy to put together- directions were clear. The bed looks OK- the drawers are very shallow and will not hold much. The veneer is delicate, so the slightest misstep will leave a mark. The bed frame itself seems relatively sturdy- but the drawers are not. I don't think this bed will last very long- and the companion headboard DOES NOT fit at the top of the bed- it just sits at the top and can't be attached to the bed- the headboard was a complete waste of money.
