My friend asked me to build a "forever bed" for her son.  So I pulled up some plans, and she LOVED this headboard.  But wanted a footboard to hold the comforter on.  So, I built the headboard, realized how easy it was, and invited her over to help build the footboard.  She was so excited that she helped build her son's bed!
