When we brought a king size bed I did not want to get rid of the queen size headboard because it matched the other bedroom furniture, so I cut the legs off. added the two oak boards and molding, reattached the legs to add 10” to each side. When I show our friends the result they say “It looks like it was made that way”.

Now that’s using your head. Looks like it was always a King size head board.

That’s fantastic! When I clicked to your link and saw your title and pic, I thought immediately to incorporate what I saw into a hutch or the like utilizing the two side openings with some shaped doors, running the sides right into the legs,which wood become decorative corners, and the mid section between the two arches that wood have had shaped doors added, wood be cut out to make a flip-down cubby with a light up in behind the finial arch to shed light through the crackly-seedy glassed flip-down door.The bottom wood’ve been a couple doors and some drawers… But, on the other hand, after coming in and seeing what was really up, I must say that my first reaction was that i was looking at a “made” headboard. If, indeed, you did do what you say, it looks marvelous. I really like that finial top…if it was mine, Id butcher it or something and put it in my living room on something.

I agree with the numerous others, great work, it looks like it was intended.
