About This Project

Several months ago I built the queen sized storage bed for my son and daughter-in-law. They are so happy with it. But, recently, my son's sweet wife asked me if I would make a headboard for their bed. She'd seen a picture on Pinterest of just what she wanted - and guess what? It was Ana's plan.
The headboard went together beautifully. I made a couple of minor changes (no side pieces on the legs, an extra top piece and a tiny trim piece added). I also made it a bit smaller in width. Each leg sits about an inch and a half behind the sides of the bed, which enabled my son to attach it by screwing through the bed into the legs.
I also made floating night stands (so they can open the drawers in the bed!). No pictures of those, but they're stained to match and my kids love how everything turned out! It's so nice when things turn out well.

Estimated Cost: 
About $85 in materials. I had screws, glue, stain, finish.
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Poplar
Finish Used: 
Minwax Espresso, 3 coats, sanded lightly between coats and wiped off with damp cloth. Minwax rub on polyurethane (I think it was satin). 3 coats, sanded lightly between 1st and 2nd coat.
