Really poor customer service and the product wasn't right when it arrived. First, the shipping took 5 weeks instead of the promised 3 and I wasn't provided with any updates unless I explicitly asked and tried to figure out what was going on with my order. Then, when the headboard finally arrived, the pre-drilled holes were in the wrong places and the directions very poorly done. I'm not incompetent when it comes to simple directions and assembling furniture so I'm certain this wasn't just customer error. Finally, the pre-drilled holes to attach this to the bed frame are in the entirely wrong location so they had to be drilled again leaving extra holes in the wood. On top of all this, the wood for the legs was actually bowed and not straight when it arrived. I asked to have, at the very least, my $100 shipping fee refunded since it arrived 2 weeks late and I wasn't even afforded that courtesy. I'd recommend you skip this product.

While the headboard itself is beautiful I was not very pleased with the amount of time it took to be made (I ordered March 26th and it arrived April 23rd). Also, when I received the headboard it wasn't the right size. It appeared to be the correct width of my king sized bed, but the boards to attach the headboard to my bed frame were not located in the correct spot. So then I had to wait yet another 4 weeks (arrived May 18th) before I received a kit so that I could attach the headboard to my bed frame. I believe that Nate Truax has a very good concept with the headboards, but he still has kinks that need to be ironed out.
The demand for different
After building a headboard, a desk and a coffee table for his home Nate was asked by guests to build them something custom for their home. Humbled but motivated by the desire to design and create the MadeTru store was born.
