Saturday morning Tallman and I decided to put the headboard on the bed. How to attach it had been the subject of some discussion for a few days, and while Tallman took the reigns Saturday morning in assembling.
Here let me show you what I mean:
Then he put one across the headboard, nailed into the vertical boards, which then attach into the posts onto the bed. This allows the horizontal board to get around the foam density on the sides and nail to the posts without tipping.
Then moving left to right he nailed the horizontal board to the post, then the boards to the bottom of the bed frame, and then to the post. Then put in more nails to make it super sturdy.
What was I doing during all this? Other than taking pictures? I was holding the headboard in place. And moaning about my sinus headache. Tallman is the best. :)
Hope you enjoyed the process with me!
