The only thing I don't like about them is that they don't have a pronounced headboard. I want a headboard. I know I could make my own fairly cheaply compared to buying one, or even make a fake one on the wall. Its silly of me to hang onto the idea of getting a true headboard, and I can't explain it. And I know that I could just get a normal bed, and buy a bunch of storage boxes to go underneath, but I've always wanted a platform bed. If it came down to it, I'd pick the platform bed over the true headboard. But for now, I'll keep looking, and see if I can't find some way to have my cake and eat it too.

I found this beauty that I was in LOVE with (gorgeous headboard AND drawers!) until I realized that the whole queen bed set (base, rails, head and footboard, drawers) costs $949. (They have it set up as buying piece by piece, so it showed up as being just over $100. I hate it when things are labeled misleadingly.) Juuust a little out of my price range. So I will keep looking. Or back to Ikea I'll go. Suggestions anyone? Recommendations?
