The Trondheim queen bed in our guest bedroom needed an upgrade. The panels on the headboard are as thin as paper so you couldn’t sit up and lean against them.
I had a sheet of 3/4″ walnut plywood laying around so I thought this would be a good way to make use of it. I prefer minimal modern design and have always loved the Case Study bed with its simple headboard, so that was my inspiration. I cut the walnut plywood to size but notched out the bottom of it to fit inside the side panels that run the length of the bed.
