camelback sofa headboard

SOFA AS A HEADBOARD INSTRUCTIONS: many have asked how this bed in the show house was done with a camelback sofa - so when i did one for my self - i took pics. to basically show you how i did it! enjoy!
go to your local home store and purchase a 4x8 board (or larger depending on size of bed - i had the 4x8 board from the showhouse, so i just added another 1x8 board for the adjusted size from double to queen). cut to bed size and cover with batting and fabric using a staple gun. (if you can find the right sofa for a king, you will probably have to work with 2 boards for your base)
go to your local home store and purchase five 4x4's for the legs. one leg goes in the middle and four on the outside. cover in batting and fabric and attach to board with 3-4" screws.
slide board with legs attached onto sofa seat.
place your bed skirt on the board and adjust as necessary. staple in place. turn bedskirt under when you reach the sofa arm.
enjoy your new bed!
