Shanty Full Size Headboard

  • September 6, 2018


I used a mixture of the Shanty-2-Chic DIY Farmhouse Crib and the DIY Modern Farmhouse Platform Bed and created a full sized headboard to replace my sons old headboard. I used Varathane in Briarsmoke and love how it turned out. I actually ripped down my 2x4s for the first time per their "How to give a 2 x 4 a straight edge" video and it looks amazing!

  • Absolutely awesome craftsmanship! Did you run into any trouble spots when putting this together?

    • Thank you! Everything went fairly smooth except when ripping the "crumb catchers" (the round edges) off of the 2x4s. My table saw is not the best and I think it made me nervous to rip the edges off. I did use a featherboard and a push stick...safety first! ☺ After I was done though...I was so excited that I actually did it somewhat successfully! Thanks for the motivation and inspiration to build!
