Reclaimed Wood-look Headboard

Submitted by mom of 4 on Mon, 10/14/2013 - 08:38

Pretty much followed the plans for the reclaimed wood-look headboard, but without legs. I built it of pine and topped it with a purchased piece of moulding. I hung it from screws into studs with D-rings on the back. Super easy to put together with the Kreg Jig!

Finish Used
I sanded the bejeebers out of the rough 2X4's on the sides, top and bottom. Everything else got sanded before and after assembly. I punched down the nails on the trim and then filled the holes. Primed everything and then put on two coats of a dove-white trim and cabinet paint.
