Sorry, I just reread your e-mail and you did say full size. After watching countless home improvement shows--anything can be made out anything. It just takes someone who know carpentry. If you can at least get a headboard made--do so. I found it's much easier to make a bed without a footboard.
Thanks for the feedback. I guess I should have mentioned that yes, I do plan on buy a full size mattress for this bed. I would like to have the post made into a head board and foot board but I just didn't know if it would be possible. Thanks.
Truthfully, I feel that if it is a crib size mattress--you really shouldn't go to all that trouble to make a bed out of it unless you are going to have a headboard made and possibly use the posts/rails for legs of the bed so you can put a full size twin mattress on it.
We took our son's crib apart and put the mattress on the floor next to a twin mattress on the floor.
It was done for safety reasons and we didn't want to spend the money on safety rails. Besides the fact, that they will soon outgrow the mattress.
