I really liked this even though it wasn't all hardwood. It was very convenient and looked nice. However, there was no option to attach it to the bed or bed frame so it kept moving. If you keep it against the wall, it may work but I had to leave some space in between since it was by the window and we had to leave room for curtains.
MY HUSBAND AND I PUT THIS HEADBOARD TOGETHER - TOOK ABOUT 4 HOURS! WE ARE BOTH FAIRLY INTELIGENT PEOPLE, BUT EVEN THOUGH THE DIRECTIONS ARE VERY SPECIFIC REGARDING C2,C3, C4, ETC., NONE OF THE PIECES ARE SO DESIGNATED - IT TOOK THE MOST TIME ARRANGING THE PIECES WITH DIRECTIONS, ACCORDING TO SIZE - PIECES SHOULD HAVE BEEN NUMBERED. HOWEVER, IT DOES LOOK GOOD, BUT WE WOULDN'T DO IT AGAIN - JUST GLAD IT'S DONE.
This is a really great piece of furniture. It works great with our new king size bed. It was relatively easy to put together with two of us. Some of the pieces are pretty big and it gets heavy when it is all together. Highly recommend.
The product was just as described, although made of pressboard with a veneer, once assembled, this stand alone headboard looked excellent. My only complaint is with the onlline help person, who I had called to see if the product came with brackets to attach the healdboard to the king size bed frame. One person said I needed to order the brackets separately, while the second person I called indicated that the brackets came with the headboard. THE BRACKETS DO NOT COME WITH THE HEADBOARD! Otherwise, the headboard was easy to assemble and looks good.
Admittedly, once my husband and I put this headboard together, we were very wary that it was going to work. On it's own, it doesn't stand well. But, then, it was designed to have a bed pressed up against it. We thought we would have a problem with items falling off the shelves with any movement of the bed, but this headboard is amazingly sturdy and very well stabilized once the bed is pressed up against it. Obviously, the only downside is that it's made of pressboard, but it will last us just enough years before we're ready to splurge on solid-wood furniture.
Nice. Looks good, love the function. Solid. Instructions were a little confusing, parts weren't labeled with stickers or anything, but we eventually got it together correctly. Some concern with movement and items falling off -- could attach to bed-frame, but considering this would be a better attached to the wall. First book-shelf-header. Like it.
I like this headboard. It was easy to put together although the instructions could have been more clear or the pieces labeled. The only complaint I have is the headboard does not attach to the bed frame. I would have really loved this headboard more if it had a way to connect it to the bed frame like most headboards do.
