Nexera Pocono Full Bookcase Headboard in Espresso
- Shopper in
I bought this headboard because I needed a place to put things, but don't really have space in my bedroom for nightstands. This
headboard not only fits the bill, but it looks great. I can store my books, magazines, glasses, creams, lotions, etc. in what amounts to four good sized cubby holes and two bed-long shelves. The best part about it is the shelves are reversible. You can put them either to the left or the right, depending on how you want to set up your bedroom.
Now, while the directions "require" you to have 2 people to put this together, it's not exactly necessary. Just lay it on the floor and manuever everything into place as if it were standing. I put it together alone, and didn't have any real problems.
Note: this unit is NOT for people who use their furniture hard. You do get what you pay for, as in it's made of MDF with an espresso veneer. But if you don't abuse your furniture and you read up on how to keep MDF clean (Don't soak it with water or cleaning fluids!!! Use furniture polish wipes.) it should last for years.
Also, if you're going to put together furniture, invest in a rubber mallet to tap the "wood" into place without damaging it, a small, lightweight hammer for nailing in cardboard backings, and a palm sized cordless screwdriver - great for tight spaces and getting in the many, many screws that come with these sorts of DIY projects. It's the best way to make sure the furniture goes together securely and doesn't wobble.
