Our DIY Barnwood Headboard

So before we began the "headboard project" I googled some of course.
And here are some of the popular ones I found.

None of these designs were quite what I had in mind.
Lucky for me my husband can see right into my brain.
When I say it, he gets it!

I chose the pieces I wanted to use.
Derek cut, sanded, cleaned, and sprayed them with a clear protectant.
We actually had to build it upstairs in our bedroom
 b/c of our narrow stairs.

I really love the lipped edges on each end and the piece on top that makes 
shelf. All the wood is slightly different in color, shape, and width.
