Barn wood bed - heardboard

Here's a mock-up of the headboard. The slats are 5 1/2" - 6" wide with a thickness approximately 1". The top of the arch sits at 58 1/2" right now. It will get a 1/4" x 1 1/2" piece of steel to cap the exposed, sawn top. The next step is to attach some cleats to the side rails and throw down some hardwood mattress slats. The box spring will barely be above the side rails, so there's no need for skirting...It's finally coming together...
