Queen bed with Upholstered headboard and shelf

I saw a bed online that I liked, then I saw the price, not happening! So I thought, "I will just build it, how hard could it be"? I need to learn to ignore the crazy inner voice in my head, sure I can do this even though the only other thing I have built was a bench and shelf. It was my first project I did all by myself from picking up the wood to screwing in the last screw. There was lots of cursing and bruises and I wanted to give up about a dozen time but I saw it through to the end and am thrilled with the results and I have been sleeping on it for a couple months and it hasn't fallen apart, even with my 3 crazy dogs using it as their wresting ring.
