That looks awesome!

What site did you use to build the headboard?

Where did you get the wood bats? I'm struggling to find a cheap option for those.

There wasn't a plan for the headboard. I found a picture a few years back and knew I wanted to make it for my son. I can take measurements of everything and let you know but I got the bats then just did what looked best.

I searched high and low for bats in local stores and online. I ended up finding the best and cheapest online. I did my best to find old, used bats but couldn't find all the right sizes for what I wanted so I just got new bats.
