Hi Kim, You saved the “day” for me as I proceeded to make this headboard (that I had NOT done before). Am enclosing pictures for you to see. I DID love working on it. We delivered it yesterday to an awfully pleased couple. They couldn’t stop “oohing and “aahing” over it. My husband and I were kinda proud ourselves!!!! Many thanks again!!! Most gratefully yours…
