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!
