What could be better than wood furniture to create a cozy feeling in the bedroom? This bedroom set includes a bed platform and a headboard, 72" wide by 87 3/4" long. The platform is 11 7/16" high whereas the headboard measures 86" high. Additionally, the headboard features a shelf that can be set at any desired height.
Two bedside tables, 22" wide by 15" deep and 23 3/8" high, complete the set. This bedroom furniture is simple to assemble and does not require any particular knowledge. The structure is made of plywood covered with stained pine boards either glued or screwed from the back resulting in a finish that has no visible screws. A slightly amber stain gives all the wood elements an exotic look.
