Mary Bet\ wrote:
custom headboard - My king sized bed has a foot extension on it to accommodate my 6'6" husband and my Labrador retriever. I would like an upholstered headboard for my bed. I have the fabric. Could you make it for me? My extension is a wooden box that is as tall as the box spring, 12 inches deep and as wide as the bed. Then I have a covered piece of foam that is as deep as my mattress that sits on top of that. I still use traditional fitted sheets on the mattress but have extensed the top sheets. I am open to other ideas....

I just design beds, I don't build them. :-) I would recommend that you see a local upholstery shop, most make upholstered headboards and can most likely get you what you want. Good luck with your project!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The bed frame's measurements take a fluffy comforter into account, leaving just enough room for a duvet to fit inside the frame. Each headboard has a notch in the corner, so it fits perfectly in the frame. Thick screws hold the headboards in place through the back side of the bed, with a bracket for support. For a switched orientation, the headboards can be removed by taking out the screws.
