Meet Casey. He's Cool.
We are working on redecorating his room and we found a
headboard on Pinterest that he liked. So, after three hockey games
and a hockey party...we headed to Lowe's to pick up some wood.
Before we left for the day, I spent a little time measuring so I could have Aaron at Lowe's cut the wood and save my husband a little time (so he can prep the taxes). He thought I was a little nutty, but appreciated how prepared I was.
Here it is laid out...oops, back to Lowe's for another brace
and shorter nails for the nail gun.
I softened the edges with my palm sander and removed the rough spots.
Now we wait. For Mike. Taxes.
He helped me get it level, square and nailed together.
I filled the holes and sanded it down. Then I gave it a couple thin coats of ASCP in Old White, distressed and waxed it with both clear and dark wax.
Here it is! In the garage.
Tomorrow I will buff it and attach it to the wall. I like it so far...I wish I would have stained the wood, then painted it. I couldn't tell what was sanded between the white wood and the light paint. Oh well, I added some dark wax to age it.
I'll share the final product once the room is all pulled together.
