BRIMNES too basic? Here’s how to add a headboard, lights and side tables

I wanted a new look for my IKEA Brimnes bed.

I bought a Perfekt Sofielund cover panel (217cm 86″) for 2 euros! You can do this with all kind of cover.

I also bought a LED strip.

I have also two Billy shelves from a Billy bookcases.

And you need some wood/screw to fix all together.

First step : Fix the panel to the bed

Step 4 : Fix them onto the bed.

    In my opinion, the union between parts seems extremely weak. A weight in the side tables acts as a lever with a long arm against a short frame square.
    The same applies to the headboard. Two wooden strips and a board screwed to both parts do not seem enough.

    Appearance is very good, but durability is highly compromised. Try to rethink the unions and look for stronger hardware to reinforce the setting.
