Forming a shallow recess, which creates a cozy feel conducive to a good night’s sleep, the headboard is made to look as if it is part of the wall. This effect is amplified by painting the back of the storage nooks the same color as the wall and by adding small halogen lamps to the inside of the frame. Perfect for those who like to read in bed!
This headboard, built from 5/8" MDF, measures 89" high by 13 3/8" deep and 120 1/2" wide. The pieces used to make the widest sections of the headboard therefore need to be extended. All the parts should be glued before being nailed or screwed together, as the case may be.
