My teenage daughter at first thought she wanted a bed without the headboard so we purchased the platform bed with the 3 drawers underneath. (An OK value for the price.) Then, she realized that she really enjoys a headboard, mainly to keep the pillow from falling off during the night. This one is cute with a little bookshelf/cubbie for stuff like cellphone, earrings, books, clock,... I only wish it could attach to the bed somehow, to keep bed from inching away. But it serves its purpose.
