I'm in the beginning stages of building furniture for my sons toddler room. I found the perfect headboard for the room too! The only thing is there are not plans for it and I can't see what they did for a footer. Here are the plans I want to use for the bed http://ana-white.com/2012/08/simple-twin-bed BUT I want to modify the headboard to look like this http://www.google.com/imgres?q=baseball+bat+headboard+plans&um=1&hl=en&c....
I'm not sure if you can click on the links I listed above but you can definitely copy and paste them in the browser.
I'm VERY new to making furniture ( only 1 thing so far and I just made it yesterday) but I think I can make plans for the headboard, my main question is, can the header and footer not match and look ok??? I listed both links so you can see what the header and footer will look like. I know the obvious answer might be, just make a baseball bat footer. My only thing is the bats are VERY expensive and the cost will start to defeat the purpose of me making it to save money.
Note: I will also be building the Kenwood bookshelf, nightstands and a dresser (dresser is not a kenwood plan).
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Have you thought about ripping the bats in half down the middle and nailing them to a solid piece of wood? I would double the bats and have nearly the same look.
OR, making the footer solid and painting it to look like the scoreboard at your sons favorite teams ballpark!?!
Not sure what direction I'm going to take yet but I really like this idea.
