Thanks everyone for your very insightful suggestions. After several days of deliberation, SWMBO has OKed keeping the bed, for now, with padded bolsters or an oversize mattress as you have suggested. Since the bed really is too big for the room, we’ve agreed that whenever inspiration strikes again, I will design a new, regular-style bed that will take up less space in the room; but that can be much farther down the road. We have way bigger fish to fry in the meantime!

My mother has offered to make padded bolsters or get an oversize mattress (she knows foam people), so I believe the bed will be sellable whenever I replace it.
