I needed a headboard for my daughters bed, she has a full size IKEA bed that had no headboard. She was coming home from from college for Winter break and I wanted her room to look nice. I knew I would have to retrofit this headboard to make it fit, but the look was right, the quality is great, and the size was very close. I was able to cut the legs shorter, and used a couple 'L' brackets and had to drill a hole in the bed but in the end she now has a beautiful bed with a wonderful headboard. This headboard gives her bed & room a whole new look. I cleaned up the old IKEA bed and gave it a quick refresh white paint job, I cleaned the mattress of any stains from spilled Coffee and foods-with (Vinegar, Baking Soda, Dawn & water mix), then retrofitted & mounted the headboard, and made the bed with clean sheets and blankets. She was so pleased to have such a great, comfortable headboard. She used to have to pile up dozens of pillows to have something to lean against, not anymore!
The headboard is fine but after purchasing several of these I have discovered all of them are wobbly and hit the wall which creates dents and chips paint. This headboard is fine but the design idea of this style of headboard attaching to the metal bed frame is ridiculous.
My mom ordered this light grey headboard. So excited when it got here! Took it out of the box and it wasn't light grey. Seems that it looks more brown than grey. So it doesn't match her newly painted room and new curtains. She will be returning it.
