This looks beautiful! I can't wait to make it. Do you have the dimensions for a queen size bed?

Hello! I was just wondering if anyone had attempted a foot board for this Mason headboard? Or if there were any plans for such? My husband is particular to the horizontal lines as opposed to the vertical lines of the Farmhouse...he's a strange one.

Thanks for the help!

I was looking over the cut list and the plans for this headboard, and I was looking for the spot in the plans where it calls for the use of the Kreg Jig. It is in the tools list, but I don't see where the actual plans call for it. Just trying to figure everything out before I actually start building. Thanks for you help.

I love the finish in this picture! Can you post the steps you used for it? Thanks :)

Edit: Nevermind! The comments on Nicole's page give an excellent description of her finish. Thanks anyways! :)

I have just made this bed and love the finish she used. You can no longer get on her blog, so wondered if you could share what stain she used. Thanks!

The pictures are great but I have not been able to find any detail about how the pannel trim boards and the pannel boards are assembled. I have the tools I need but would like to know some of the assembly details before I actually begin.
