Hi Oscar,

Our bed and box spring combined height is 19 ½” as we have thin box springs. I am tall and my feet do hang over the end of the bed at times so the mattress will have to sit a bit higher than the footboard after it is installed. I did not see a price for a matching tall dresser 54” high 36” wide and 18” deep with 5 drawers. Just to confirm we will be ordering the following items on this order; 

Finish. Dark stain (see previous Nixon order of armoire), varathane coats (satin finish, not shiny), distressed finish

 1 Bed King size     $1,640.00  Pine or  $2,624.00 Alder wood

2 night tables      Bur9  w/ Cancun carving $360.00 Pine ea., $680.00 Fine woods, $544.00 Alder wood

1 wide dresser  $890.00 Pine, $1,780.00 Fine woods, $1,424.00 Alder wood.  Both Dressers tall and wide  with dental detail below molding.

1 high dresser     $740.00 Pine  $ 1,184.00 Alder wood 

 The other cabinets and mantel have been previously built so they can be deleted from the page. I will discuss  with Caroline tonight and simplify things and decide on wood. 

Thank you very much,

Douglas and Caroline

Hi Oscar,


Sounds good. We checked the bed again with blankets and the inside length of the bed frame should be no more than 81.5 “ . The 76” width is more than ample.  Please send some pictures of carving designs for Caroline to look at so she can pick something out.
