Need zip tie!LaurenNo where in the description does this state free standing.
I had to zip tie it in a bunch of places to the bed frame. I couldn’t jam the bed to the wall to hold it up because the half of the bed is under a window and the headboard hits the window sill.
Don’t buy unless you have an empty wall!
Great headboardLisaI purchased two of these twin size headboards for my queen size bed. I have a platform bed so this works great as a headboard. I will probably get a 2x4 to place behind the bed , place the headboard on top to raise it 2 more inches. Unless ikea has longer legs i can purchase. I wish I could submit a picture cuz it looks cute.
Great buy.CindiThe headboards look great together as a king and separately as twins in my guest room. The price was certainly a factor is selecting these but they are sturdy and not rough to the touch.
pretty but flaw in designChelseaI purchased the headboard and frame it was shown with- the frame was in stock so we got it and ordered headboard online- I think the frame is sturdy and was really easy to put together which was nice. The headboard I read nothing about being free standing so when I put the frame together first I was confused how anything would attach to it and when I got the headboards I understood 😂 I think I like it. I may regret that in a few months but for now strange design but fine for the money I think. I just wish they were higher off the ground but it’s ok. I’m sure my kids will find some way to mess it up😂
Already chippingRachelWe’ve had this headboard less than a month in our daughters room in which she doesn’t even sleep (we’re working on it). The metal parts of the frame not covered in rattan and just painted tan are already chipping. We also had to zip tie it to the frame so it stopped sliding all around
“free-standing” = falseRafaellaI want to love this headboard however there is a serious flaw in the design. The description states “free-standing headboard” which is far from true. It would be such an easy fix for IKEA too. If you are okay with getting creative or leaning it on the wall, this product really is pretty and a great size for the price.
It's simple , best forNorbertIt's simple , best for a full or twin
I wish there was anAntonellaI wish there was an option for it not to be free standing. I had to fab it up to be high enough for my tall bed
