This is a fairly simple project with a good, eye catching result. Not all headboards/foot boards are created equal though…you have to pick a good style that doesn’t require a lot of changes. I did raise this one about 3 inches. Kept it simple…hardest part was painting. These seem to be a popular item right now. Paid $5 for the bed part and had the rest on hand.
