check the measurementsTo start with, the actual width of the headboard is bigger than my (full) bed. Serves me right for not checking the measurements before I bought it. Not to mention the weight-- this thing is HEAVY!
It was kind of a nightmare to put together, especially in my small bedroom. It requires feats of strength and balance to assemble this thing on your own. Or, y'know, another person. Didn't stop me, though.
It looks nice and makes my bed look a little less sterile. The holes in the backing for electrical cords are helpful, though they could stand to be a little bigger. Getting a grounded plug through them is a squeeze. I wish the shelves were just a little taller, as I can only fit certain books in there.
The plastic cam locks are super flimsy, and I'm not sure how long they'll hold it together. Better to use metal ones that won't crack or warp.
