This is from my Sports bed line. It is a baseball bed built with the Giants colors. I now have all the color cards for each of the teams so colors can be mixed in a durable lacquer and match perfectly.

As with my other baseball beds, the headboard is customized by the customers info. They fill out a form and we design the graphic around it. We also use authinic Louisville Slugger bats on the headboard post. All four post are topped with real baseballs.

Very cool! Well, other than it being an SF Giants bed, of course. How do you attach the baseballs? A dowel?

I attach the baseballs with a lag screw.

YES!!!! (I’m a Giants fan). I’d suggest considering making the footboard with a brick look and the posts could be the archways to mimic the right field wall. Just a thought ;-)

I like the idea on the brick look.

I know your going to say “it’s what your customer requested” but bring it to their attention when they request it. You don’t play out the bottom of the ninth inning when the home team is already leading therefore scoring 1 run in the bottom of the ninth is not only impossible, it is unsportsman like. In most game standings you will see an “x” placed in that spot. That would look cool as well. Other than that i really like this bed. The strip with 400’ is a nice addition that I don’t remember seeing on other beds.
