After looking for several years for a headboard/footboard she liked my wife finally gave in and asked me to take on the challenge. She wanted something rustic looking but not necessarily something that belonged in a log cabin. This is the project we collaborated on. We decided on the look together and then I got to building. It took about two weeks altogether working on it an hour here and an hour there. She loves it and because of that I can take on even more projects around the house with her trust in me.
