I liked how low profile this headboard was. The color of the gray is definitely cool. Something about the color reminds me of how white fabrics looks under a blacklight. I did have to drill extra holes for it, as it did not fit my bed/frame. I have the DuraBed Platform Steel Bed and used the Durabed Platform Bed Steel Headboard Brackets Kit. It doesn't feel super sturdy, but it gets the job done. My bed is pushed up against the wall so I think it is good enough. Not real quiet though.
When upgrading to the California King I lost my beloved headboard & footboard to my queen mattress. With a husband an first child on the way, we chose to go with a larger mattress. After 3 years on no headboard, I saw this one, it was hugely on sale, and I bought it. My husband put it together in less that 30 minutes and it looks great in our bedroom!!
