Great Deal for the Price
Woody the Geek from Arlington, Virginia
This is a fine looking headboard, giving an appearance far richer than its actual construction, which is fairly flimsy, although VERY heavy, particle-board. We are using it in our master bedroom.
Just what we wanted
PandaMom from Suburban Chicago
We are very happy with this headboard, especially for the price. It took us about 3 hrs to assemble. It's beautiful in our room and has so much space. We have assembled a fair amount of RTA furniture in our time. We had no trouble with the instructions on this item. [...]It's not completely out of the question that one person could assemble alone; but you should have two people working together. One person can work ahead on certain steps to prep the panels for the other person.The "complaints" I have would be:1. There's one step where you attach two L-brackets. We did not find pre-drilled pilot holes to tell us EXACTLY where to put those brackets. We originally spaced them too far apart and then noticed they didnt pull the front panel flush as they should have. So we had to take them out and put them on again. It was not easy and took a lot of time to deal with these brackets. It was one step in the instructions that said it would take 2 minutes but it took more like 45. Maybe we missed the pilot holes but I dont think so because we looked closely.2. There are no holes cut in the back panel that you can put electrical cords through. This seems to be common on almost all RTA headboards recently (this king size one is the fourth one we have purchased since 2007) and I dont know why. Where is the cord for your alarm clock supposed to go? On other units we purchased, we used a keyhole drill bit to cut our own holes. On this unit, we had an innovative brainstorm and decided to LEAVE OFF THE BACK PANEL COMPLETELY. It looks GREAT this way because we just painted our walls and you see the nice color of the wall in the squares of the headboard and there is no trouble with cords.3. When we put the top panel on, we could not get the black pegs to push down flat into the center upright panels. You cant tell because of the trim piece on the front, but it was annoying that even when my husband sat on it, the panels wouldnt snap together as they should. I dont know what causes this - some error we made or the holes not drilled right, etc.Other notes:1. You should take the time to sort and count all the pieces before beginning. It really helps - not just for this item - you should always do that when assembling anything.2. From our experience with the three other RTA headboards we have (another Prepac and two SouthShore) you definitely CANNOT let water stand on the surface. If you're in the habit as we are of having a cup of water by your bedside, you need to keep the cup on a plastic tray or coaster or something like that. Continuous contact with water/moisture will bubble and degrade the surface.3. Do heed the warning in the instructions to not pound the black pegs in too deep or they will crack the top surface of the headboard. We made that mistake on the white Prepac headboard we own, so we were very careful with this new Cherry one when we did the pegs.In closing, we would recommend this headboard. It's stable and not wobbly and looks great.
This is nicer than expected!

This headboard is the best I found in our price range and I am very happy with it. I think it's one of those things that you can spend [$] or choose the alternative which is very expensive, no mid range. It is very heavy when delivered and the king size we got is a long box of course. It was somewhat difficult to assemble and even though we followed directions we still had one of the pegs go through the top shelf of the headboard. We sent an email to the company to explain and we were very pleased to be responded to immedietly with the notification of a new top being sent to us[...]I am very pleased with this company and would absolutely purchase again. The headboard looks very nice and classy assembled. Lots of storage space and seems sturdy enough for our use. Overall, very satisfied. One thing we chose to do is to not put the backboard in place but just let our wall be the backboard. This makes cord and cleaning issues much easier and still looks great.
Nice head board

A little challenging to build, but it turned out well. Heavy duty construction. A board was broken in shipping and promptly replaced in 3 days..
Love it! Love it! Love!

We ordered this headboard in cherry, and it has brought so much class to our bedroom I wouldn't have believed it. And my husband, who didn't want to replace the old one, was completely blown away by how wonderful this one looks in our bedroom, and what a great statement it makes. Thank you.

This headboard was easy to assemble and looks great. I would have liked it even better if there were openings for electrical cords
