The Andres headboard came on the market a few months ago and I've been stalking it ever since. Don't get me wrong. The original price of $220 wasn't bad by any means. But I know how Target works. I'm no fool. So I sat with bated breath. Until... boom.
First, Target decreased the original amount from $220 to $199 [currently, it's back up to 220]. Not a sale. A
A few things about that. I got an email and a voice message warning me that they would call in order to schedule a drop off time. Not sure what happened with that since it was dropped off while Oscar was at home [with no warning] but I was glad not to have to coordinate anything. The packaging was very impressive as well. Normally, there's either not enough or wayyy too much. This was the perfect amount. Enough to keep it safe but nothing excessive. It's still a lot though, I mean... it's a headboard. It came without a scratch on it.
Here's what we were working with before... a bed on the floor. Original.
And here she be in all her gloriousness:
The contrast with the walls is great and it adds sooo much texture to the room! If this is too dark for your taste, Target offers a lighter option. Be forewarned, it doesn't come with hardware. I wasn't surprised since a review had mentioned that [but all of the reviews were sparkling]. Not only will you need your own hardware but you will most likely need a drill. There were predrilled holes but they were too large for the screws we had on hand. We drilled new pilot holes and it was still really hard to add the screws even with the drill.
We picked up a frame from a mattress store for $50. It was really easy to set up. I hope you stay tuned because I've added lighting and a lot more. The room is looking like a real room for the first time... ever! I just need some adult bedding...
