Nice headboard, but if you don't know someone with experience putting this type of thing together..forget it!! The instructions are not very clear, Not all pieces are marked. I have purchased many build-it-yourself items from Sauder over the years but this is by far the hardest one I have put together. I suspect it has been marked down because of this. Having said that this is a nice piece of quality furniture but had to rate it average because of the difficult assembly.
It is heavy and nice looking, I like that. The assembly instructions could be made clearer. All parts need to be labeled as that would help during assembly. I am pleased with the headboard and would recommend it to a friend.
I ORDERED THIS ONLINE AND IT WAS READY FOR PICK UP AT MY LOCAL SEARS STORE 2 HOURS LATER. PICK UP WAS EASY AND WE HAD IT LOADED IN 10 MINUTES. MY HUBBY PUT IT TOGETHER IN ABOUT AN HOUR. IT WAS MADE A LOT STURDIER THAN I HAD EXPECTED IT TO BE AND IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL BEHIND MY QUEEN BED. IT HAS SIMPLE BUT ELEGANT LINES AND I AM TRULY ENJOYING IT.
Heavy, difficult to put together and DAMAGED on arrival. Gouge marks front and center of the headboard. NOT worth the money, effort, and frustration.
I finally opened te package and was appalled by the contents. It was scratched, some corners were swollen as if they had been wet.I liked the design but the produt is worthless. It splits and pieces come off.
it is pretty heavy, when we connected it to the bed frame it is very wobbly, it wobbles when there is any movement on the bed. I really dislike that.
Im In LOVE with this headboard. Its beautiful, affordable and amazingly attractive, for any style. its, fashionable while giving a sense of comfort and gives the room a relaxing but elegant feeling. Anyone who purchases this item will be supremely Happy!
There were so many pieces it took me all afternoon to put it together.
While on sale for half price, this is a good value for the money. The headboard is sturdy, solid and durable. It has elegence in rounded edges and the side columns. It is quiet heavy, but it is worth it in my opinion. It was a bit difficult to assemble, we made one mistake and used the wrong screws from behind and they protruded through the front; this is easily fixed with some wood glue and a coloring stick or (like us) find four round screw covers extra in the package of parts and glue them into the holes, it looks like it was made that way. It took us an hour and ten minutes from out of box to mounting to the frame. Take your time, know your parts well, and don't be frustrated when a part that is supposed to slide inbetween two others seems to be too large, just work it from the side and it will fit nicely to be screwed to the legs in the end process.
Purchased item November 26,2011, husband had to help me assemble the headboard. The finish of the headboard is a beautiful cherry finish, however be careful that you don't take off the finish as you assemble it.
Some parts are not letter coded so we had difficulty figuring it out, the manual was of some help but it was confusing. Took 1.5 hours trial and error. It helps to have a power drill (optional not necessary). Look at the picture on the box. I recommend that you label the parts that had no letter(s) on them in case you have to disassemble in the future. Label and seperate all your screws it makes it easier.
The price for the product was great, rather than buying a used one I got a new one for the same price. Have not set up the queen bed rails on it hope it withstands the weight.
