Rather than attaching it to the bed, simply hang a headboard on the wall behind the bed for the same effect as one attached to the bed. Creating king and other large rustic king headboard of wood, you can cover with a myriad of opportunities.
Use the many ready-made items like headboards; hang an antique wooden door or hit a bookcase sideways to create a king size headboard, or design your own rustic king headboard from the hardwood or plywood. Standard king size mattresses are 76 inches wide; do your rustic king headboard at least this wide. Measure the height based on personal preference, but start measuring a few inches below the top edge of the mattress-you do not waste materials by extending it to the floor. Once you have your king headboard dimensions of a sheet of plywood cut at your local lumberyard. For a headboard that you want to stain or paint, cover the raw edges wooden board.
