I just built this headboard for my daughter's new full bed and she wanted the headboard with the metal frame. I was wondering if you could share how you attached your headboard to the frame? The holes in our metal frame on the the flanges for the headboard are rather large. I used kiln dried 2x4's for her legs because we don't get 4x4's here that aren't pressure treated.
