    Very Nice!!!!!

    any chance you can make it a little clearer what you used where…adding a few detailed “steps” you
    utilized with the item list?

    how thick was the foam for the headboard…and frame?

    memory foam…or poly foam?

    Thanks for the idea. I see a lot of these for sale secondhand, but they are soooo… not very attractive to my eyes. This looks great!
