Last Christmas Luke and I splurged and bought a new bedroom set for the master bedroom and moved our oversized log bed to the guest room. I love the log bed, but the guest room is only 10x11 and the log bed is huge.
Bolstered by some recent success with woodworking projects I decided to build my own headboard and attach it to a cheap metal bed frame we have stored in the basement. Using maple scraps leftover from previous projects I designed and built a simple headboard.
I wanted the look warm look of aged cherry wood. It took a base coat of red mahogany, followed by a coat of cherry and two coats of english chestnut to get the color I wanted.
With the guest room finished and the exterior work done for the time being it's time to start the next big project, finishing the basement.
