I used the plans from Ana excepted converted the measurements to fit a King. Our mattress comes in on July 3 so I’m praying that it fits! Making sure the middle didn’t sag was an engineering feat. I designed my plans based on similar bed frames found on sites like Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn. The first time, I made this on my own and it took me two afternoons to complete, including the upholstery.
I really liked the look of the Raleigh Upholstered bed from Pottery Barn, but, as I do with most items, I looked at it and thought I can make that. I spent 44 making my queen sized diamond tufted headboard. I used my old bed frame which I upholstered and made a few headboard from scratch. You also want to make sure the headboard extends below your bed, so measure from the spot on the wall where the headboard hits and measure down behind your bed a few inches. Continue to tightly pull and wrap the batting around the entire frame until you have it all stapled down.
