My parent's helped us re-roof our home this summer and we wanted to build them something as a thank you gift. They went out of town this weekend so we busted out this little headboard, finished it and snuck it into their bedroom. They get home tomorrow and they're going to be so surprised! I really hope they love it!
We built this from our experience with Ana's site but it isn't one of her plans. It is a piece of purebond plywood we had leftover measuring 25" by 48" so we framed it out in 2x4s and topped it with a 2x6" and 4x4 legs. It was super simple and cheap to make. I finished it with Watco Danish oil in Dark walnut and did 2 coats.
I love it and it really looks good with the rest of their furniture and their beautiful bedding!
