This headboard base moves the bed out flush with bookshelves.

I had a conversation with myself this morning.

How can I work without internet?

Now why, Ana, would you ever want to do that?

Because there's no internet at the cabin.

I wanna go to the cabin too (that's Grace talking).

So how are you going to work not just wirelessly, but satellitelessly?

Not to mention electricitylessly?

And plumbinglessly?

And roadlessly?

So all these things mean alot of less-lys.  Like refrigeratorlessly, phonelessly, even cellphonelessly, microwavelessly, pretty much convieniencelessly.

Well, I could not work, and just cram everything in when I come to town.

But you LIKE to work.

Yes, I do.

So I talked myself into something that might be better for you (you as in YOU, not me talking to me)

Because one thing I don't have to do is go batterieslessly.

How about if I developed plans into PDFs and then when I get back to town, all I have to do is blog the PDF?

Like this?

So what do you think? Can I still live a life where it’s common (but still amazing) to see 17 moose and 1 black bear in one night (that was last night) and still do what I love, design and build furniture? Love the PDF or back to blogger?

Special thanks to <a href="">Amy and Steve</a> for their photo.

I really like this! I would love to see that headboard with the hinged footboard from birdsandsoup's farmhouse bed.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever tried to build something like that where the headboard sits against the wall and is tufted/padded and is high enough that someone could sit up and lean against it and the shelf would be above that with lights (sort of like under-cabinet lighting). Maybe some trim on the front to hide the light. I'm thinking something similar to some of the furniture tradition beds where they have built in power outlets and dimmer switches (although that is very fancy).
I wish I had a picture of exactly what I'm envisioning. My drawing skills leave much to be desired and I don't have a tablet.

Have you by chance posted the plans for the shelves under the bed as well as the book shelves on the sides? I would love to build this entire thing for my daughter
