I'm excited to share with you today my latest finished project (notice how I said "finished". That's cause my garage is full of half finished, or not even started projects!)
I pre-ordered Ana White's first book, "The Handbuilt Home" and because I did so, I got some extra plans as a bonus to the book. One of those plans was for a headboard that I immeidately fell in love with. I've been eye balling her Farmhouse Bed for a long time and just didn't want to commit to a project that large, taking up much needed and valuable realestate in my garage... so I put it off. Until I saw this...

This is NOT the headboard from the bonus plans, but it is the closet fascimile to what IS there. When I laid eyes on it, I knew it had to be mine... you see, I haven't ever had a headboard my whole adult life. I know, sad really, but I could never afford a gorgeous bedroom set and at that time of my life, I didn't know that I could build one so... I went without. Until now!
Here's how mine turned out. What do you think?
