To Build or Not to Build?
Every time I walk into our master bedroom I get frustrated that we don't have a headboard. The frustration comes from a number of places, the wall looks bare without one and I can't justify spending $900 on a salvaged looking headboard. That's where the question comes from...to build or not to build?
I have personally never build anything expect for a canvas and that was a challenge in itself. However, when I makeup my mind about something, you can't change it. I tend to try and take on things without any experience, I figure that's the only way to get experience is to venture into the unknown.
Yesterday I decided "what the hell" let's look up a headboard plan, trust that it's right and roll with it. After an hour trip to Home Depot and some measuring and sawing I had begun my adventure. No blood, sweat, or tears only one thumb smashing and the headboard was built. Yes, of course I had to crowbar a couple of pieces out but all in all it was a smooth process. I spent under $100 and around 6 hours on the headboard. Below are some pictures of the process. I will be staining tonight and will post additional pictures this week.
Lesson Learned: You can do anything you put your mind to.....It's true.
