Since I have elevated the head of my bed (several years ago), I haven't had a head board. I think I would like to have one now. With the bed elevated like that, is it possible?

I do have a headboard and when I elevate mine the legs of it just dangle, but it seems to work OK!! I wonder if you can put the headboard feet on the blocks instead??

Hi Sweet!!

Thanks for your reply. :) I don't think putting just the headboard feet on the blocks would be very sturdy. Right now all I have is a frame. I'm not sure if I could connect a headboard to it or not. Better check that out huh? :unsure:

What we did is separate the frame of the bed from the headboard. Then my husband made a frame that fits inside of the frame that elevates the head of the bed up. It seems to work fine. Sometimes its funny as my husband has "slipped" down to the middle of the bed and I wake him up and tell him to come "back up".................. Only a good husband would be so supportive of all this sclero stuff that he has to deal with................

Warm hugs,

Peggy
