Pottery Barn inspired headboard for under $100
Lately, I've been so inspired to build things. I used to refurbish a lot of furniture and that was fun but building something, I mean like actually making it from scratch, is a whole new level of fun. Which brings me to my next project, this headboard. I originally made a reclaimed pallet headboard for my basement guest bedroom and I really liked it at first...and then I didn't anymore. I don't know what changed my mind but for some reason I just wasn't feeling it anymore. Of course my husband, Richard, tried to convince me otherwise (but that never works).
I love all things Ana White and this headboard was no exception. A very similar version of this headboard sells for almost $900 and I made this one for less than $100!
The tutorial for this headboard can be found here.
This project only took me about 1 hour to build. I had Home Depot cut all of the wood for me and came home and assembled everything. I sanded it, stained it, and applied a coat of polyurethane and that was pretty much it. This was, by far, the easiest thing I've ever built and the results are professional grade (and I'm no professional)!
I used Minwax Dark Walnut Stain and sealed it with Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane (this stuff is awesome)!
So happy I decided to replace the previous headboard with this one! It turned out awesome! This is a great project for a beginner and an impressive one at that. So go out and build something!!
