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.
