A comfy Noresund bed head

Materials: Noresund Bed and Bomull Curtains

Description: I have a Noresund Bed an I was tired always of having lots of pillows and quilts for my back, so I can read in bed without hurting my head on the metal frame.

The wood is fixed on the metal frame by cable connectors.

Then I measured the size for the eight pieces and cut the foam rubber in their size.

I cut the Bomull curtains to fit around the foam rubber and had another piece of square wood each.

Then I took one of the square wood piece, do the square foam rubber on it and covered it all with the fitting piece of the curtain. It’s only fixed on the bed with a feltglide each.


Reading in bed is much more comfortable now.
