Farmhouse Queen Headboard

Submitted by danicarby on Mon, 11/09/2015 - 07:19

I built this for my mom's guest room.  She watched my kids and I worked in the garage.. couldn't have been a better vacation! :)

 

I used 6" (finished size 5") tongue and groove boards for the panel, shorter posts and screwed main structure pieces together using 5-1/2" lag bolts and plugging with 3/4" dowel pieces.  I added woodedn blocks at the bottom of posts for attaching metal bed frame.

 

My dad didn't have any pipe clamps so I ended up using a wratcheting strap!  HA!  Use what you can and save money! :)
