Recent project completed and delivered. We spoiled our oldest daughter with an upholstered headboard and platform bed.

The headboard profile is thickest at the smocked pattern point and tapers towards the 3 outer corded edges. Hidden from view is a bottom row of six spaced buttons on the headboard. One unplanned happening relates to the fabric repeat being similar to the smocking pattern . . . another are the leg contours (Mr. H's improvisation) as a tapered leg cut was requested.

AND the biggest issue overall was when it came time to load the platform frame . . . found out the staircase angle in our quad-level home was too short (by about 1/2")!!! Good thing they used 5/8" drywall at the ceiling corner point . . . bit of a repair will be required though :) Decision made: any future builds done in the garage!


Good job Lo. Nice details.
There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.
