Reclaimed Wood Headboard, Double Size (Cedar Siding)

Made with leftover lapped cedar siding from our woodshed, plus a few pieces of reclaimed 1x4 and some new 1x3.  Wanted it to be navy, and it is.

Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Cedar and random fir
Finish Used
Navy blue satin paint. Don't - I repeat - don't prime with white primer, if painting a final dark color! It took 4 coats of navy to completely cover the primer. Either skip primer or have it tinted closer to the final color. Should have known better.
