We purchased and installed this Queen size headboard 6 months ago and it's been great. It still looks as good as new. It doesn't squeak, shift or wiggle and the paint hasn't chipped or faded. It still looks brand new and complements our other bedroom furniture. When installing you will have to find something solid to place under the 2 supporting legs of the headboard because they are not long enough to reach the floor when attached to a bed frame. The headboard is so heavy that we placed blocks of wood under the headboard legs just to give them something solid to rest on. The headboard is actually held in place by the bolts attached to the bed frame, but we felt better knowing the headboard legs were placed on something solid and not just hanging in mid-air. I recommend this item to anyone looking to get a solid, stylish headboard that will last for years and years.
I have a California king mattress, 72 " wide x 84" long. The frame connects to horizontally attached pieces of wood to the legs, but if you have an Eastern king, (76" wide x 80" long), it attaches to the legs themselves and will look a little better when attached. The two packages in which it arrives are quite heavy and require some muscle to move them around, especially up any stairs. The packaging is excellent protection, but be prepared to spend 30 minutes getting the parts out of the packaging. You can't get in a hurry cutting the interior's many pieces of packaging tape, or you risk scarring the item. There is a lot of packing material -- a lot, lot. The styrofoam alone filled the trunk of my car. The cardboard took about 15 minutes to cut up to fit in my recycle container, which is also now full. Be careful on your first step in the instructions: inserting 8 lock screws into the top piece; you must hold the screws exactly perpendicular while screwing them in, otherwise they can easily go in slightly crooked, and in the last step the top piece will then not fit properly. It took me at least one hour to do the assembly; it is definitely not a quick and easy install. The quality is good, and the appearance is good; but if you look closely, you will see a few paint runs and some of the corners require a little black marker touch up. To attach the bed frame to the headboard requires the purchase of four 1/4" x 2" bolts, nuts, and washers - which cost under $2.00 at your local hardware store. After attachment, I was unhappily surprised to see that there was a five inch horizontal gap between the headboard and the mattress, which I am debating on whether to close, (by either adding an additional horizontal board, or cutting off the legs and then moving up the bolted-on parts to which a California king frame attaches). I'm moderately pleased with the purchase.
I read the previous reviews, and noted all of the places it said there are two sets of holes in the legs for attaching -- one for an Eastern King, and one for a California King. I have a Califoria King. Maybe it's a difference in the frame size which makes neither of the holes in the legs match to the frame of my California King. BUT the holes in the metal stretcher piece at the bottom DID correspond with the holes in my bed frame. I put one inch pieces of wood under the legs, screwed the stretcher frame holes to the bed frame (nuts, washers and bolts for doing this step are not provided -- only screws for putting the headboard together are in the package, along with a hex wrench), and the entire thing took only about an hour, with the help of my terrific boyfriend and including a walk to the local hardware store for nuts, bolts and lock washers. It looks GREAT, and was VERY EASY to assemble.
I searched for 2 months online for a king headboard. This one is great. Easy to install. I was able to do it myself in under and hour. Pretty sturdy. I was able to attach it to my basic metal king frame. I use it to keep a barrier between the window that is behind the bed, so it's pretty sturdy to lean against, attached to the frame, and a few inches pulled away from the wall. I ordered the light beige and it's on point. Fabric good quality, especially given the price. It is adjustable as well.
