I want an actual bed!

I want a bed with a headboard. I don't so much care about the foot board, but I want a bed that doesn't come free when you buy a mattress.

So far, I'm looking at stuff like this......

I really like the big wooden plank as headboard idea. Seems to me I should be able to figure out how to do that though- without having to buy a new bed frame doesn't it? Like maybe actually hanging the wood on the wall off a cleat or something like that.

I'd actually love a platform type bed like in pic 2, but I do need the space underneath for off season clothing storage, so that might not be the best option for me after all.....

well, back to the drawing board!

Like the plank idea a lot!

For how to hang, try Googling instructions for the popular notion of using an old door as a headboard. The same hanging technique should work... I read a few but can't really visualize what they're saying or I'd suggest something.
