Headboard Heaven

**UPDATE**

Today, my brother and I hung the headboard in my bedroom.  A stud finder, level and screwdriver (plus some serious calculation) all came together to create a beautiful bed!!

 

After coming across Remodelaholic‘s post Head of the Board! Headboard tutorial, I knew I had…or at least my dad…had to build one 🙂 .  We are on a pretty tight budget with the hubby in Law School, so when I realized that my Home-builder pops would be able to help me construct this beauty, I was off!

After a few emails encouraging my wonderful Dad to take part in my endeavour, I headed to my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for the cabinets.  Last weekend, the first weekend of my Spring Break (yay teachers!) I headed home to SA for the big build.

We followed the tutorial pretty closely, with the only big changes being the measurements simply because I have a queen (not a king like Remodelaholic).

It only took us about 5 hours to build the headboard and one to sand.  Now, I am working on making sure the paint is perfect before we get it all set up.  We are going to have to hang it on the wall like the tutorial because our bed is on risers.  As soon as it is up, I will post pics again!
