Looks great, I like color, and I bet it looks good in the bedroom. If you don’t mind telling how tall is the head board form the floor to the top of the headboard.
Thank You

Bigrock – That’s a good question! I don’t remember. Daughter is out of town right now, so will have to post it next week. I measured the garage door elements you can see in the pictures, it looks like it is 52” to the top. She has actually asked me to add 6” to the legs. Says her stack of pillows hides the headboard too much!
