Our first headboard arrived with defects (the board was put together misaligned therefore unpainted portions could be seen). We called up Overstock customer service and they sent us a replacement right away (A+)! We've been in the bed for a couple of weeks now and it's very stable (after putting one additional support for the slats under the headboard. Easy to put together and goes great with our decor. Also, I like that the headboard is flat against the wall as the width of our room is smaller therefore we maximize the space with a smaller bed footprint.
