All's well except when you pound in the wood joiners, don't do it like the incredible hulk. I warned my husband that other reviewers said pounding the joiners too hard (forgot the real name of the part) can put holes in the TOP of the headboard. Lo and behold--we have TWO holes. (argh) The parts should've been numbered and anyone with a clue should put the pieces on a solid surface to avoid HOLES in the TOP of the headboard. Can you tell how gleeful I am? HAHAHA.

This item was first delivered broken. Requested a return and received the second headboard, which was delivered intact. The quality is very poor as with anything made with composite wood (think ***** quality). But the price and the look make up for the lack of quality. The matching storage bed is also poor quality and very difficult to assemble. This headboard assembles much easier. The pair does not go together so well. I assumed they were made for each other, but the bed frame does not fit perfectly against this headboard. You get what you pay for.

The color and quality are very good for the price. It was easy to assemble the illustrations were slightly misleading, so it helps if you have a clue on putting things together. My only complaint is three brackets should have been included my husband purchased a third one because the center piece was slighly sagging. It was easy to fix. Great product and great price.

We love this new headboard. We purchased it to go with our existing bedroom group purchased at **** It arrived in exceptional packaging and had no damage or scratches, and was easy to put together. It's sturdy, and super functional! We would highly recommend to anyone.
While I love the design of this item, there are a few things that are very dissappointing about it. First, the color I ordered was "Espresso", which is described as a "brown-black". Since the other furniture that I have is called "brown-black", I ordered the Espresso. It is much "browner" than any other "Espresso" I have ever seen. I thought that perhaps they had sent the wrong color, but the box says "Espresso". I'm thinking it is not "true" to any other "espresso" I've seen, and I should have ordered the black. Also I read all of the reviews, taking special note to be careful attaching the top because it damages easily. As careful as we could be, it too got damaged inserting the pegs, and now I had to order a new top. I deffinately think this is a design issue, because no matter how careful, damage still occurs.... All said, for the price, I love the design of this piece.
We bought this headboard for our king sized bed in April of last year for **** bucks. It came flat packed and we assembled it. The materials that its made out of are crappy and low-quality. The whole thing is a huge piece of particle board. Looks cheap set up and collects dust like a nightmare. If you set anything on it, it will scratch the sticker paper that looks like wood. And if you move at all in your bed...forget about not making any noise or feeling like your bed is going to fall apart. I would never buy this product again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. I ended up giving it away on ***** less than a year later and bought a used cherry wood sleigh bed for **** bucks. Should have done that to begin with. I want my **** dollars back!
I bought this to use as a temporary headboard until I could find one I wanted, but this has been up for a year now and I like it A LOT. It's very heavy and has been a sturdy piece of furniture considering the price! I didn't put the backing on because I wanted an open case look, and that didn't change how it holds up. The finish has held up well, there are only a few blemishes after a year. Well worth the price if you aren't looking for heirloom quality furniture!
Not too difficult to put together though would have been more helpful if the parts were label and the instruction came with the box- customer service was quick in getting the instruction emailed the next day. Headboard is nice looking for particle wood and functional for the price.
I gave it 3 stars because it serves the desired function and assembly was easy. I am a 56 years old women. It took about 1.5 hours put it together without help. It looks great, however, it is NOT well made. Be very careful when hammering in wood dowels. I did put 2 dimples into the top. I am concerned that it will scratch easily. With that said, I am so pleased with the functionality of it that I am thinking of buying another for my vacation home.
Although it looks great on the picture, when we tried to put it together it broke and the surface of the top part of the shelf is now crooked. It is made of a very weak "wood" which is almost like cardboard. I guess if it hadn´t broke then I would recommend it, bad luck for me now I don´t know what to do with it...
My husband and I just assembled the headboard two nights ago, and I must say it's a very nice compliment to the bed we recently purchased through overstock. It looks expensive..but it wasn't....beautiful and cheap....what a bargain. Thanks overstock!
I wouldn't recommend this product to a friend. It's made of particle board with a thin veneer glued on top. I expected it to be at least made of mdf. I was really disappointed with the quality of this piece of furniture. The pros are: it looks nice and it provides a lot of extra storage. The cons: Manufactured from cheap particle board, expensive when you consider the materials it is made of.
The only advice I would have to buyers is not to hammer the little plastic pegs into the back of the top too hard as it will cause unsightly bumps to appear on the top. Otherwise this unit is good value, fairly easy to assemble and quite attractive.
It works for what we need it for but it isreally annoying that the bed doesn't fit all the way next to it. So there is a small crack between the headboard and the bed! I have already lost my watch and my checkbook to that crack, and it is not easy to get out- you have to move the whole headboard to get anything out! Really annoying!! But besides that it works and looks nice.
