Remember this? The bed I made for my kids, the Docs?
Well, my sweet Doc DIL, recently asked me if I could make a headboard for them. And, she knew just what she wanted. She'd seen it on my favorite DIY blog, Ana-White.com. The plan drawing looked like this (below), but she was hoping it could be stained to match their bed. She wasn't in a hurry, she said she'd be happy to have it whenever I had time.
Here're some of the in-progress pictures and the final, in-place picture my son sent to me today (They picked it up, and it actually got installed today!)
|All cut and ready to put together.|
|Joining the planks.|
|Adding some filler and prepping for stain.|
|First coat of Minwax |
|Third coat going on!|
|Seeing the variations in the grain.|
|Here you may see the slight change I made to the plan.|
I added another top piece and added a small decorative trim piece.
And, here it is! I think I might make one for myself!
