Instead of throwing out my old bed frame that incudes a box spring with my mattress and buying a more modern bed, I choose the more economical option of just adding this stylish headboard to make a more "adult" bed. The headboard is an attractive board in a stylish mocha finnish with clean lines that easily fit a standard Queen bed. You assemble it with the enclosed hardware. Having a power drill or screwdriver will help.

The only problem I had with the piece was, if you lean on it or shake the bed, the headboard wabbles a lot. Being made out of press-board doesn't offer a great deal of stability. It was slapping against by back wall each time I got in and out of the bed. And I feared it would break if I sat up in bed and leaned against it to watch TV.

My solution, since I couldn't physically get the bed any closer to the wall for support, was to attach two 2X4 pieces of wood to the back of the headboard. With those in-place the headboard fit snugly against the wall and became rigid and firm. With the minor and easy to fix solution in-place I've now got a great headboard that doesn't move. And you can't see the 2X4's at all.

The headboard itself looks great. The only flaw I could say is that after I attached it to my "metal" bedframe it still is not tight and solid. It moves too freely for me. Also there were no screws to use, I had to purchase those on my own. Now if you have a wooden bed frame maybe the headboard might fit tighter so it won't move as much. But overall I'm very happy with how the headboard looks and will solve the movement problem down the line.

This headboard is gorgeous. The finish is beautiful, the style is elegant, and it's just tall enough to be commanding without dominating the room. It isn't particularly sturdy, though. BUT that was easy to fix.
Be wary of the screws included. There are two sets of 4 screws that are almost identical, and silly me got them swapped. I put the longer ones on the bottom of the headboard itself, leaving the too-short ones to attach it to the bed frame. Also, if you do what I did, you risk the screws poking through. So follow the instructions carefully.
Anyway, I realized that even with the right screws, it wouldn't be very well attached to the frame. So, I purchased a couple small L-brackets and attached those to the posts and the bed frame. Et voila, it is perfect!
Be careful to use the right screws in the right places, and consider using L-brackets for added stability, but it's a beautiful headboard!

Attractive, easy to assemble Headboard that feels more sturdy and looks considerably better than its $80 price. Does not come with bolts to attach to Bed frame.

Purchased this in Feb 2012, and it was very easy to put together. I did read a review that said this didn't come with screws, but mine came with everything.

My only issue with the head board is that it moves too freely. I have the South Shore Platform Bed, and when I attached the headboard, it didn't feel very secure.

If you're buying both, or even just the headboard, expect to reinforce the headboard for a more secure fitting.

I was not disappointed with this product. Easy to assemble if you have the right tools. Beautiful, beautiful! Redecorating my son's room I needed something inexpensive but yet pleasing to my style and appealing to the eye. This product did just that!

Let me first start out by saying that I thought this was going to go lovely with the matching platform bed that I ordered. It had a nice finish, though it was a bit darker than I originally thought it was. Everything was going well until I had to assemble to bottom board. It was two inches too short! We measured just to be sure. It's one thing to be short on one board but two!? Yes, the top board that went across the top was also too short. We double checked the instructions to make sure we were matching all the correct parts and we were. I was unable to assemble the headboard correctly due to errors made by the manufacturer. I will not be able to get a refund because according the refund policy, the item must be unopened and unassembled! How do we know if we need to return the item if we don't assemble it? Though I am happy with the bed that I ordered, I am extremely upset about the headboard and the inability to recieve my money back.

Looked great on the website and the price was good, but I had several disappointments with this item. The headboard did not have all of the necessary bolts, several of the outside facing pieces did not have vanier so I had to manualy paint them, many of the outward facing bolts did not come with caps to cover the bolts. Poor quality, poor workmanship, do not buy this item.

The sides of the headboard were not finished so we had to paint it black. Needed to drill holes in the legs to bolt to bed frame. It's a little wobbly.

I recently purchased this for my son, I was able to put it together within an hour by myself. There were no scratches or problems with assembly, Instructions were very clear to me(a female). The bed looks beautiful in his room. For the price this adds a nice touch to any room.
