Modified Tall Panel Headboard

Submitted by RenoRustic on Thu, 04/09/2015 - 21:31

I built this headboard as a birthday gift for my grandmother. She had a rickety, old makeshift headboard composed of a couple of 2x4's and some lattice that was spray painted. I modified the plans to fit her Full size bed and lowered the height down to 62".

I sanded the entire headboard with 80 & 120 grit. I matched some Behr semi-gloss paint to the color of her door and baseboard trim. Painted it with my FinishMax paint sprayer, sanding between coats with 400 grit. 3 coats of paint overall.
