Love this headboard! Had a question regarding dimensions, and the helpful customer service staff was very friendly and accommodating and got back to me quickly with the answer. My question, in case you have the same, was what is the height of the headboard from floor to bottom shelf? I needed to know to see if my mattress & frame were too deep to fit under the shelf area. It is 29 inches. This was a great product and I assembled it myself in no time.
This was my first time trying furniture from Overstock. The product not only came with easy to read instructions, but it also included a timeline for how long it would take to assemble the product. Although I didn't attach the headboard to my bed frame in the end, it stands behind and fits my bed and room, perfectly. I will definitely order more furniture from them in the future.
Easier to put together than we thought, although the boards weren't marked. Worked well with 2 people putting it together and the electric screwdriver made the job go a lot faster. One of the images in the book isn't quite right it shows the 2 pieces of wood that you tap the "feet" into as equal in length when they truly aren't. If you look at the next page, the picture is correct, again if the boards were marked this wouldn't be a problem. I'm glad I read other reviews because it was made clear to make sure you have all of the pieces facing the proper way. We only had to fix 2 boards that were backwards but that was our fault. Be careful when tacking on the thin backboard, make sure your nails are lined up correctly, I did crack a piece of the particle board so be very careful. I did not tack around each cubby hole because there are no markings. Overall we love the look of our new headboard and didn't have to fasten it to the frame it stands alone and it didn't take us all day to put together, about 1 hour.

We bought this headboard after looking in stores for a while. While it is not real wood, it gives that appearance. Strongly recommend two people to do assembly. While not difficult, it goes more smoothly with two. Had to buy hardware to connect to bed frame, but no big deal. Overall, a very good value.
We bought this headboard to go with existing pieces. It did. It was a little difficult to put together, but this was expected. Works well for our needs and price was right.

It nice looking once u put it together which took me 3 hr.. had to follow pictures no directions in writing that helped very much. the boards weren't marked or labeled for where they went. had to figure everything out myself. if u don`t mine a wood project for 3 hr, i would say its ok. but i don`t have time to do this kind of a thing. Does look Nice. But Made Cheap.
This headboard is functional. It feels rather solid. It's not hard to assemble, if you read instructions carefully (e.g. pay attention to instructions specifying which way the finished surface of each board goes). Ideally you want to your spouse's help once in a while when putting it together. At the same time the headboard is not that heavy, so that a couple can carry it around. The problem with this headboard is that it has the look and feel of inexpensive office furniture. Of course that kind of a feel is expected given the price, but the look might have been better. I'm no designer, but I would imagine that making corners more rounded, adding some some bedroom attributes (e.g. a light), or turning some of the shelf space into a cushion that one can lean against would make the design more bedroom-friendly.
My son and husband put it together. It took a couple of hours. They said the directions weren't very good. It looks nice and is great for particle board furniture. It is a good deal for the price. It does what we want it to do. It is a little short for our bed, but not so short that it looks funny. We don't have it hooked to the bed and it is still pretty sturdy.
We decided to upgrade from Q to a King bed, I was searching for a regular headboard when I came across this one. LOVE IT! It is sturdy and I (a girl ;) ) was able to easily put it together in about 30 minutes. Great quality and I am sure it will be with us for many years!!
You get what you pay for. It was a pain to put together and I put a hole through the top pounding in one of the pegs with a little too much enthusiasm. I put a coaster over it. Kind of cheesy overall. This would be fine for a younger person on a budget.
This headboard is pretty sturdy. Put it together myself with 3 tools (screwdriver, hammer and power screwdriver) in about an hour (I am only a month removed from hip replacement surgery, so I move slowly). *The parts were not labelled, but they are fairly easy to identify from the diagrams, so don't freak (like I did) when you realize the parts aren't labelled...just look at the diagrams for each step. Lay the parts out carefully and go into the room you will put the headboard in with the directions, then just go get the pieces you need as per the stepwise diagrams. You will be fine. I like it so far, and fairly easy to put together, as I said.
We are very happy with the headboard that we purchased. Looks really nice and was not at all difficult to put together. Arrived in perfect condition. My one complaint is that the parts should have been labeled (a, b, c, etc) to make it easier to figure out which part went where.
