Twin Platform Beds & Hexagon Tile Headboards

My daughters have been begging me for beds for a long time and I finally took the time to deliver!  I knew I wanted to do platform beds for them, as we are moving toward the modern look as well as easy to move since we will be moving homes again soon.  I had this idea rolling around in my head and I was able to design a platform bed that is sturdy but not bulky.  I also wanted something different, and the hexagon tile headboard is just that.  The tiles are also modular and you can adjust them or change colors as you see fit!
