Bed with no slats

Posted 1 year ago

I have the headboard, footboard, and sides of a bed. I'm not entirely sure how the bed fits together either because the mechanism joining the head and footboards doesn't seem very secure (the nut is fixed so I don't know how its supposed to secure) so the way they fit together might need a new solution too (one that is reversible so the bed can be removed and reused easily in the future).
