Not only did this not come with bed rails it didn't even have holes for bed rails. Very hard to assemble (took several hours). Very cheap product and poor value. Don't let the picture deceive you, the backing of the shelf was heavy cardboard that took over 20 nails to tack on. The wood joins with cam screw and plastic bits. Not very durable. My wife loves how it looks but I hate how cheap it is. Shipping weight is 75lbs in a 4 inch tall and 9 inch wide and six foot long box. Compressed wood chips with wood color tape
I purchased this headboard for a Christmas gift. While it arrived on time, the box had been opened and there was a big gouge out of the box. Upon opening it, there was one piece that had a gouge out of it and the one corner of the shelf was split. I don't know if this was done during shipping or it left the factory that way. Weighing 78 pounds and the hassle of returning it wasn't worth the trouble, so we kept it. The instructions are not very clear but we managed to put it together, which was not an easy task. It takes 2 people with a lot of patience. I looks ok and I guess for the price it was a good piece of "furniture", but I don't think I would purchase another one. I hope it holds up. Give serious consideration before making this purchase.
the headboard looks fine now that it is finally together but the instructions didn't really help a person who hasn't put together much furniture. I really didn't realize I had to assemble it! It is pressboard also so the "Maple" is misleading. Not too happy with this product
This is one of the first items we ever purchased from Overstock.com. We bought this headboard for my son's room which was getting a new full size bed. It took about 90 min for me to put together and the instructions were clear enough, not great. Size wise, it is definitely made for a queen size bed. With a full size bed, you will have a gap between the bed and wall if you center the bed on the headboard. Quality wise, I was impressed with the heft and sturdyness of it considering it's particle board, not solid wood. My son loves it - it has great storage space for his trophies, ipod docking station, books, etc. It definitely eliminates the need for nightstands. We are very happy with the purchase.
This was easy for me to put together we just had a little problem with the 2 small shelf brackets, there are no predrill holes and the angle took a little time. We put it together in about an hour. This is used in our sons room and is perfect for him. Not the highest quality but very worth the value and does look good in there. Easy to follow directions. I would recomend this headboard.
A good match for the platform bed bought in a previous purchase from this site, but was dismayed to find a shelf, the top shelf, damaged when opened. We had already unpacked everything for putting it together and was not going to go through a frustrating process of re-packing it all up for return so determined to just later apply a maple wood contact paper to cover defect which was not small by any means. Still for the price it is a very nice headboard and seems to be of a good study construction. I just thought it would at least have a maple wood veneer surface, not paper, which I doubt really to hold up for a long course of time.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good, but was not aware that maple finish was just a paper veneer
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good construction, but came with damaged paper veneer on top shelf
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I don't believe that the site described the maple veneer as being paper.
My son and I assembled the headboard in about an hour. For the price, I felt I got a good deal. You could probably assemble the headboard with one person but it is much easier with two. It is true there are no predrilled holes for the headboard but this is due to the fact that not all frames are the same. I was glad they didn't have the predrilled holes. You must be willing to assemble the furniture and remember you get what you pay for. If you are looking for something to last 30 years I would not suggest this purchase. However, it was prefect for my teenage son.
Bought this for my sons room...it arrived fast and packaged very well so there were no dings in the wood. It was easy to put together...did it myself (i am a female) with a drill in 25 minutes. Directions were clear and easy to follow. I didn't put the board on the back of the shelving unit...I prefer to see the wall through the shelves. It is sturdy and well made. It looks great and my son really likes it. It is a great addition!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. easy to put together, sturdy, functional
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
I bought this headboard for the spare room in our second home. I had it shipped to my home then hauled it to the second home without checking out the parts. When I started to put it together I realized I had two left sides. I did manage to get the bed to work even though the holes on the one side don't match up. I know Overstock would have taken care of the problem if I had called them, but by the time I realized the mistake I had the headboard halfway put together. Other than this problem, it is a good headboard for the money. Just make sure to check the parts before putting together and throwing away the box.
The quality of this headboard was disappointing - as was the complex nature of assembling the piece. The instructions were moderately helpful - and they did provide a phone number in case of an emergency - but, all in all, the work was daunting. Also, the "finish" on the top of the headboard, was damaged when a screw went through in the wrong place (it was where the manufacturer designated).
The head was harder to put together then we thought. We had to drill holes on the opposite site of two of the boards because it was made backwards. The headboard is great tho! It goes perfectly with the captain's bed we order from here also.
this headboard is wonderful, it is just what i wanted it has the compartments and shelves I needed for my litlle nik nak gifts that were given to me by former co workers. I thought the products would be cheap, but It is the right color and the wood is fantastic and it fits the mattress and boxspring perfectly and it is the same color as my nightstand and best of all the price was right Well I am quite happy and satisfied with my first purchase from Overstock, so much so I also purchased a sheet and comforter set which I am ecstatic with, I certainly will be purchasing again.
it looks nice, but it is ruin the top board when putting it together... I was using a small finishing hammer to get the pesky little locks in the holes and easily pushed them through the other side and have a bump I cover with a basket. I'm pretty hand and usually don't need instructions with these sorts of things, but with this one I needed the instructions. If there was a little more "wood-like" material in the top board then the push through wouldn't have happened. If you purchase this use the instructions and be careful getting the screw locks/dowels/etc in place
Solidly built (after you build it from parts and plans!) .. so it's well-designed. Assembly instructions are vague at times .. pieces are not identified and possible to orient them improperly. ... so be attentive! The device is not optimally designed for 'higher' than usual mattresses .. I admit my bed is unusually high so i had to finally mount the headboard on top of a cinder-block at each end. The consequence is that the wide 'baffle' that sorts presses against the head surface of the mattress becomes too high .. allowing pillows to slip off the top edge. So i bought two 6" diameter and 50" long 'bolsters' to take up the space ... The finish is very good, the result of assembly is excellent and structurally strong. I'm happy.
We bought this with the bedframe - storage bed - and it is just as cheap and nasty. My husband is a carpenter and even he had difficulty with the tightness of he pieces. He has reinforced all the parts with added glue. Color does not match other Overstock "maple" color - it is dark and more like a light oak.
