My husband and I were in total disagreement about the type of bed we wanted to get after moving to a new house. This headboard was a great compromise. Since we didn't have to spend a fortune on it my husband was willing to give it a try. We easily put it together and set it up. It looks fabulous with our dark brown furniture. It came quickly and was easy to assemble. Since it came in pieces UPS had no problem leaving it on our door step.
