Our master bedroom headboard has been quite a work in progress. It’s taken me nearly a month to complete the central furniture piece. Of course, I was only working on it every other weekend. All in all, I’d say that roughly 40 hours have been invested in this project.
I’ve posted pictures sporadically on Hodgepodge Pilot’s Wife’s Facebook page, but like I said, the progress has been incremental and spread out over a few weeks.
So, I thought it might be interesting to see how the project has evolved since mid-October when I started working on it.
Phase 1: Raw Wood
Phase 3: Second coat of Stain
Phase 4: Polyurethane Coat
Here’s a mashup photo of the entire transformation.
In my opinion, not too shabby considering this is a completely custom piece of furniture. The end result has far exceeded my expectations. I love the color and even though there are a few imperfections, I’ve grown to love each and every one of them.
Next weekend when I make the trek down south again to the house, the only item that remains on this blogger’s master bedroom headboard agenda is to drill four holes in the posts and attach the headboard to our bed frame. The end isn’t in sight! It’s here! Success is sweet 🙂
