You know the dress that became an internet sensation when people couldn’t decide whether it was blue or black? Well today’s headboard could become the next big thing on the interweb – I asked a good handful of people what size bed they thought our rather lovely headboard belonged to, and everyone replied “three-quarter” – including myself! It was only when I was measuring it that I did a double take – the width of the headboard is exactly that of a queen sized bed! And I can confirm that it fits a queen because even after measuring it, checking the measurement on the internet, measuring my bed in case Google was having an off day, I eventually hauled the headboard to my bed to quadruple check – and yes, it fits! Which is great news because it’s such a charming piece, and I was worried that if it was for a three-quarter bed, which I was convinced it was, it wouldn’t be that useful – whereas a queen sized bed is much more popular!
Hopefully somebody will love the craftsmanship, and Scandi-style cottage charm of this headboard as much as I do – I was even prepared to buy it when I thought it was super dinky, and pretty much unusable!
P.S. The headboard needs to be drilled into the wall behind your bed, so that it sits at an appropriate height. Also please note that while we’ve given the headboard a light sand and varnish, we didn’t go to town because we wanted to retain some of the history of the piece. As a result there are still minor imperfections in the wood
