This is a headboard I made out of a sheet of plywood for my
youngest son Max when he was little. He's almost 16 now (!)
and this headboard has moved on to one of my niece's sons :)
Max was obsessed with white tigers...only white ones...so
it was a natural choice to decorate his room.
I drew it out on a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood, cut out with
the jigsaw then painted and applied Minwax polycrylic for protection.
The 4'x8' sheet is perfect for a twin bed. I didn't even attach
it to his bed frame but just put it between the bed and the wall and
it was perfect.
I almost don't want to put these next two pics since the quality is
so poor...pre digital photos again! They are two more headboards
I also made from sheets of plywood, both in a palm tree design,
that I sold when I had a booth at an antiques shop.
This tall palm tree headboard was one of a set of
two made for a beach condo. I used every inch of
the 8' length of the plywood to make the tall trees
and painted sand dunes at the bottom...although that part
will really bed covered by the bed :)
Thanks for reading about my headboards!
