Project Information

This is a large panel headboard that we just completed in April 2017. It is a king size and measures about 96" tall, 76" wide. It is separate from the bed and mounts to the wall. It mounts similar to way hotel headboards mount, with french cleats.

We put a light bar at the top which is controlled by a touch dimmer, so you have low, medium, high and then off again. the touch plates are on either side of the headboard.

The headboard is a customer supplied vinyl. Each rectangle is cut and stitched and buttons covered with the same material.

We put a platform with this one. It's an overhang platform, with a ledge around the parameter. We could have used a slat system to hold a standard boxsprings and mattress, but built this one for an adjustable mechanism and left the inside open.
