White Washed Queen Headboard

February 12, 2013 |

About This Project

This is my first piece of furniture I've ever made from a plan. I would recommend this for someone who is new to the craft. I also sanded each board before I put it together. I just find this easier to do than sanding it afterwards. Plus, it gives me the chance to look at the grain and see where I might want it.
Both the stain and clear coat I used can be washed out of your brush with soap and water.

Estimated Cost: 
$90.00
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Type of Wood: 
Spruce
Finish Used: 
Minwax white wash pickling stain - one application with a foam brush. A very forgiving stain and easy to use. Minxax Polycrylic clear satin - one coat with a paint brush.

Pretty

Really like the white wash look, great job! Also, love the bedding and the tray. Did you make that tray, too?

Thanks!

Hey, thanks so much for your comment, totally made my day (0: The tray was originally brown (no I didn't make it) but I did paint it white and put a paper mosaic on it. You can read about that here if you want to see how I did it: http://thegoodrebellion.blogspot.ca/2013/01/paper-mosaic-tray.html
