Rustic Headboard

Submitted by bjd on Sun, 11/02/2014 - 19:59

We finally bought a wonderful King size bed but couldn't afford a headboard.  After seeing this one on Ana's site I knew I could do it.  Purchasing a compound miter saw helped.  For some reason the thought of using a circular saw sets my teeth on edge.  I've found that using the much sturdier miter saw on a workbench has been a piece of cake for me!  I adjusted the plans for the width of our mattress/box springs and didn't go quite as high.  But I'm VERY pleased with the results!  And I swear we slept MUCH BETTER last night with the headboard installed...LOL.
