Hand Made White Tiger and Palm Tree Twin Headboards From a Sheet of Plywood

white tiger headboard
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 :)

hand painted white tiger
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.

plywood palm tree headboard
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.

palm tree headboard from sheet of plywood for twin bed
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!
