Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiawah1 Attractive & Simplistic---My Cup of Tea
We recently moved and I wanted the master bedroom to have a finished look....I had already owned a black chest on either side of my king size bed and this Black headboard completes the set. We have a Sleep # bed and rather than order a headboard bracket kit, my Husband simply attached the headboard to the wall and it looks terrific. We knew that we would not want to change the position of the bed in the future in this room---so attaching the headboard to the wall made sense to us. The product is sturdy and I really like it's simply lines..not difficult to put together. We are very pleased with the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by htbrown07 Disappointing
As a few other reviewers of this collection have stated, this was a huge disappointment. The description said that assembly was required and that a Phillips head screwdriver would be needed. There was no indication given that it would come in a million pieces. My husband, bless his heart, put the entire thing together, only to find that the drawers did not sit properly, and there was a gap in one of them. It is also a very small piece, which surprised me. The drawers do not hold much. We actually bought two of these chests - the other one includes the media hutch. Neither piece is worth the very high price. I purchased my son's bedroom furniture from JCPenney five years ago, and it was excellent quality, made of real wood, and all we had to do was screw on the feet and put together the bed. Apparently, JCPenney furniture has changed in the last five years. Don't waste your money.

I ordered this bed sight unseen and without any reviews while in the store because I liked the style and it fit my price range with coupons and discounts. It arrived quickly (amazing for free shipping) in three big boxes. Not difficult to put together with basic tools like a screw driver and socket set. Looks just like the picture - Always a good thing!
However, it did arrive with some damage despite all the styrofoam and wrappings. I decided returning is not worth the hassle since the splintered piece is on the inside of the foot board and out of sight. Construction wise, seems pretty sturdy for how tall the headboard is with little wobble and no creaking. Posters are a little loose and could have used another dowel. Some gaps where the headboard frame joins but minimal. This seems to be only with the left handed pieces which makes me think there is a machining problem.
Overall, pretty good buy. We will see how it holds up. I would be very careful moving this between houses/apartments due to the soft veneer. If you purchase this I would recommend having a torx set of bits for a screwdriver (tx8 I think) and probably excluding semicircle "washers" during construction because they make assembly ridiculously difficult for no value. You will also need a box spring.

If you are looking to throw away your hard earned money you should purchase any item from the Rockbridge collection! I ordered the nightstand and the chest and not only did they come in a million pieces, but the quality was horrible.I expected to have a few pieces and screw them together, not to have to build the entire thing myself. It took eight hours to put together with a general contractor and a professor with a PhD for a result of very poor quality furniture at a very high quality price. I could have paid someone to build some from scratch for the same price! At least then I would have a decent result. I will definitely not be ordering anything from JC Penney ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PennysShopper2 This bedroom set is great looking
I wanted a bedroom set that wasn't too expensive for my 2nd guest room. This bedroom set is attractive and meets my needs. My husband did have to put it together but he's not extremely handy and he had no trouble putting it together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Strongback Disappointed and frustrated
I had purchased this particular nightstand, because there was nothing in the advertisement or item review that stated that this item came in MANY pieces, and had to be assembled. I figured with the cost of this item, I would just be able to remove it from the box, and ready to go...... Upon opening the box, I saw the many pieces, along with the instructions.....I resealed the box, and I'm returning it this week. It's very heavy, and I ordered two of them. In order for this item to be returned, to avoid the shipping fees, I must return it to the store. Disappointed and frustrated.
