Farmhouse headboard with picture ledge

We had always intended to build ourselves a farmhouse style bed, but life and work happened and we never got to it. Then we retired 500 miles from MA to VA. We rented a house while we looked for one to buy and there was no space for working except out in the yard or on the porch, that happened to have many outside outlets! This was a weekend project, done outside on the porch. The neighbors all thought we were crazy. We did leave one side unfinished in case our tasted for color change. To install we just used long bolts to attach it to our existing metal bed frame. Someday we will build the rest of the bed.
