Easy Build Wood Headboard

Submitted by Anneke on Fri, 07/08/2011 - 01:01

This was actually my first build. I had just about had it, went with all three kids, got the wood, and built it while my hubby was at work (24 hr. shifts at the fire station). And yes, that was after I finally Googled, "How to unlock a Dewalt Compound Miter Saw" after 30 minutes of unsuccessful prodding! :-) I'm super happy with how it came out (despite the poor flashy picture)! And it was great "practice" for doing my girl's farmhouse beds.

I think it is beautiful! I love the stain! This was my first build also, I used old red barnwood, but a friend wants me to build her one, so I'm thinking about going with the same finish you used, absolutely gorgeous!
