Describe Your Project: I wanted a decorative headboard to go with our platform bed base but everything I found was so crazy expensive! So I decided to build one myself. I used thin plywood as the back of my frame, laid out the tiles, and framed them in using pine cove strip trim boards, and 1 inch trim boards. I had a pile of wooden spindles i found at a garage sale, and used two on the ends to add a little more architectural flare to the piece. Then primed everything using a smooth surface primer, and painted, and antiqued everything with chalk paint and wax. I did use a pearlescent glaze over the paint to give the off white color a nice glow too! Hung it with some simple mounting brackets. I've got friends already asking me to build more to sell!
