This is my first piece made 100% from scratch. I am pretty proud of it. Actually, I am pretty DAMN proud of it. Brandi and I brainstormed for months, and even after we decided on the design, logistics were an issue because she is seven hours away in Pittsburgh, PA (if you recall, I’m in Michigan.)
I have a little car so I first had to design, cut and assemble the frame of the headboard in Michigan. Then I disassembled, packed my car and drove to Pittsburgh. Once I was here (I’m still in PA) I assembled it again, padded, upholstered and finally installed it. The details to me at this point are fuzzy because I was chasing my 3-year-old around the apartment as I drilled and busted out the staple gun.
As usual with larger, detailed projects, this is best told by photos.
NOTE: All of the posted photos were taken in Pittsburgh after all of the cutting and drawing were finished.
