Reclaimed-Wood Look Headboard, King Size

Submitted by mariefs on Tue, 02/21/2012 - 13:19

Cost about $100 and took about 6 hours total (one person). I ended up using a polyshade color I had in the garage -- but I wish I would have just used regular stain or paint. I'll likely repaint it in a bit, the polyshades just doesn't cover well (but that's what I get for trying to use leftovers!) One of my top pieces ended up being a little short (I accidentally cut it with the original cut pieces). It looks REALLY great though, and I'm likely the only one who would notice. My husband is super impressed! Thanks, Ana!
