Reclaimed Wood Headboard- First Ever Build!

Submitted by KaylaM82 on Wed, 08/24/2011 - 19:43

This was my first ever build and I did it on my own, so I'm super proud, but there are admittedly some things I'd like to learn from. The top trim piece is missing because the board was too crooked to attach and I was too impatient to wait to go to the hardware store again! It also stands crookedly. Not really sure why, but if you have any idea, I'd love to hear because I had a great time building it and look forward to my next build, but want to learn from that mistake first! Thanks Ana, I really didn't even know how to use a drill before hand, what an inspiration you are!
