New DIY Weathered Wood & Molding Headboard

My oldest daughter is fifteen and recently decided her bedroom was too "babyish". She wanted to update it with an older more sophisticated look and who am I to argue when I have the opportunity to do a new project! 

We started by making her a new headboard - 

I purchased a large sheet of plywood and cut it to fit a queen size bed.  I layered different molding to create the look I wanted on the top and the sides, then filled in the middle with 1x4 's from Home Depot -

Next I followed a tutorial from Ashley at Cherished Bliss, on how to weather wood.  It's a great tutorial and a super easy process, I was really excited with how it turned out!

We are well on our way to adulthood!
