Here was our inspiration image...
|West Elm Window Headboard|
Clicking "CHECKOUT" on the West Elm site would have been MUCH easier but our version was MUCH cheaper and more rewarding.
West Elm wanted $299.00 plus $60.00 shipping.
Our cost: $57.06 Here's the break down:
- Lumber: $18.40
- One 2x4x8'
- Four 2x3x8'
- Five 1x2x8' (we purchased 1 extra)
- Paint: $10.97 (Olympic Zero VOC in white, semi-gloss)
- Pocket hole screws: $3.98 (#100 1 1/4")
- Pocket hole jig: $19.98
- We already had/borrowed: the primer, miter saw, clamps, rollers, 90 degree angle, screw driver
How long did it take? Long enough. :P
Cutting wood/laying out pattern: 1 hour
Drilling pocket holes: 1 hour
Screwing together: 1 hour
Sanding: 1/2 hour
Priming: 1 1/2 hours
2 coats of paint: 1 hour for each coat (I'm a slow painter and there were A LOT of corners.)
Plans and how-to to follow!!
