Modern Farmhouse Full Bed

We built this bed according to the plans. Amazing plans btw. It’s very heavy so the next one we are going to go with 1x4, 1x6 instead of 2x4 & 2x6...think. The slats & the backboard is what we gonna change. Instead of tongue & groove we used dog ear boards which painted nicely once sanded.
I think we are gonna drop the 4x4s by 5 or 6 inches also in hopes of closing the gap between headboard & mattress so we don’t have to use a boxspring next time.
