A couple of months ago I spotted a DIY project for a salvaged barnwood headboard over on Design Sponge—immediately forwarding the link to my boyfriend. At the time, we were living in different cities (him in Chico, me in Sac), and one weekend when I was visiting him we (and by we, I mean he) decided to tackle the project.
A friend of his had some old fence boards in need of a good home, so we took them off his hands, hit up Home Depot for a few supplies and then got started on making our headboard. While the headboard has actually been done for months now, it just recently made it’s way to our new home that we share together in Sacramento. I’m so happy with how the headboard came out. I’m also really proud that my guy made it for us.
Rather than recount the exact steps we/he took, I’d just suggest you just take a look at the original post that inspired us. Besides, I really took on more of a supervisory role on this project so I’m not sure I could even tell you what Jeff did or in what order he did it.
At any rate, here are some pictures we took during the project and some shots of our headboard in its final resting place.
