We have been haggling over a head board for years now, and finally we both hit on the same page! Manuel came up with the idea and can you believe that I actually liked it??!! Our son, who is handy with tools, (unlike his father or mother) was making a trip to Lincoln to spend a few days. Anyway, I decided he could build this headboard for me. Manuel gathered up all the wood, I stripped a couple of the pieces, and had everything sanded, stained, and varnished for Jeremy to work his magic. Below is the beautiful finished project using balusters from the Packard / Jochim house and crown molding from another project. Jeremy then nailed it to the wall. I am thrilled with the look. Thanks Jeremy!!
