It's not going to be the most beautiful bed but it will work. At a later date I will make myself a really nice iron bed. This is more for spacing to see how the room will lay out with the bed in there and for sizing.

im making a quick mattress, also for sizing. I'm not so much about the mattress. I'm all about the bedding.

for the quick mattress, I measure for size and cut three layers of foam board and glued them together. I took a tip from a tutorial posted on these forums too. I used three layers of very thin batting (I actually cut it out of a old tree skirt). I measured of the batting and cut them to size. The top third layer was long enough to wrap over sides. 

I then grabbed a new light weight thermal (old Yogawear stock) and cut that to size for covering. Did a few pi tuck stitches too. 

Believe me, this is quick and not really exact. 

I had finished the headboard grill last night and finished gluing this morning.

I like your mattress.  Like you said, it is not so much about the mattress, it is all about the bedding. That makes sense to me. :)
