Tall Farmhouse Queen

This bed is our first build. We added 4 inches to the height of posts on headboard and footboard. We also used brackets rather than screwing directly into footboard to make the bed easier to move if we ever need to.

I just finished building this same bed and I'm looking for
an easy way to mount it together invade I new to move it. Where did you find brackets for the head and foot board? Could you post a picture of them?

Thanks,

Brandon

How tall is the bed from the ground to the bottom of the side rail? I'm wanting 14" so I don't need a box spring {we're both tall so I don't want to feel like I'm on the ground}
