Description: The mattress is really thick so light from regular table lamps does not work. I broke the desk and standing lamps down to their bare components and rebuilt them in this configuration.
I had to extend the low voltage wires through the poles and mounted the switches on the headboard. I also bent the poles a little using a home made jig. Overall, a relatively easy afternoon project that functions effectively.
