After much debate on what direction to go with decorating a guest room I finally chose to go with a crisp, clean, airy, sparse look. I wanted efficient use of limited space so thought the bookcase headboards would be multi-functional. Ordered 2 headboards for two beds in the room. Delivery was quick. The boxes were HEAVY so be prepared for that. I was able to scoot them into the front door but it was not easy. If you can lift 75 pounds (I think) or have someone around who can you want have a problem. I couldn?t carry or drag the boxes up to the bedroom so I took it up piece by piece. All holes were pre-drilled to perfection. Not a scratch or dent on anything. Packaging was great. Downside: I put together and took apart the first headboard 3 different times. YES, 3 TIMES..... grrrr. The instruction sheet should have been produced by a more thoughtful, detailed oriented person (a first grade teacher comes to mind). My advice is to lay out all parts and put it together in your mind before you actually do the attachments. It was easy for me to put sides on backwards, put the center stabilizer on backwards, put a piece or two on upside down etc.... The problem was somehow it fit while I was doing it wrong and it looked ok until it was close to completion.
Here?s the good part. After making all possible mistakes on the first headboard the second headboard took me a TOTAL of 15 minutes to fully assemble. It was a SNAP! By then I wished I had several more to put together. Number two was FUN! They are better looking than I had imagined. Sturdy, crisp, neat. Being they are used in a guest room they will last forever. I suspect they would hold up well even with kid use. Oh, another thing I liked was the lack of smell. No strong wood or chemical odors. A very faint clean smelling wood. Nothing strong. Overall I am VERY HAPPY with both headboards and my guest room looks great. Just be aware of those inconsiderate assembly instructions.
I bought this product for two of my sons. I was looking for something that was not a lot of money and would act as storage, in addition to being attractive. I found this product to be the perfect solution. They are made from laminate/mixed woods and hold a lot of CD's and other items.
They arrive unassembled in flat boxes. My two boys, 13 and 17, assembled them on their own, respectively, using a drill with screwdriver bit, and hex tool. The headboards were completed and up within no more than 45 minutes. (Yes, I have "handy" kids.)
They are attractive and fairly sturdy. The picture on the site appears to show a black interior. However, it is inaccurate as the interior of the shelving is Cherry -- just slightly darker in color. Other than that, the low cost is a great value.
As for further assembly...we have these against a wall and did not attach them to the metal frames. If you have younger children, who tend to jump around a bit, I would suggest attaching them to make the entire assembly safer.
the head board is way to small for the rest f the bed. and the bed is already pretty small so i think that they need to go with a bigger head board. You wouldn't be able to fit mny things in the shelf anyway. i was very disapointed when i saw it. I love almost ALL of the items that come through here but i absalutly hated this one. it'scheap but it is like you are spending money on nothing. i guess if you didn't have much stuff it would work. But otherwise, forget about it.
This product is very flimsy pressed board. It was easy to put together but when I got to where I put the top on the holes were to large. I had to improvise to get it together (not worth trying to return it). When it comes time to move it, it will fall apart.
We bought 2 of these headboards for the boys' room b/c they looked like what we needed. The size, the color, and the shelves are definite pros. They were easy to assemble and set up.
The only con that we could see is that there wasn't anyplace to attach the bed frames to the headboard! To us, this was a ver important issue as it creates a more sturdy bed for the boy's to sleep on.
I ordered two of these headboards for my teenage daughters who were coming out of bunk beds. As stated in previous ratings, they are a good value for your money and they look beautiful in my girls bedrooms. Additionally, everyone who sees them compliments them as well. If you want reasonable headboards for teens and/or young adults, this headboard is perfect.
I bought two of these for my childrens' room, they are very nice, better than I thought they would be. I was a little worried at first trying to put it together but the finished product was very nice. Love the color of the Cherry wood. Great if you are not looking to spend a lot of money but want something that looks nice. Do have to put it together, which takes time but again, finished product looks nice.
