Pictures of the Mess
I found an amazing site- Knock Off Wood- who looks at big expensive pieces of furniture, and come up with drawings/designs that you can do to 'knock off' the look.
This was the inspiration
Photo found here
Like I said in my previous post, we started out with a bunch of wood (this is only a small bit of it)
I had gotten Pave a miter saw and his Dad got him a table saw for Christmas. He said that I would probably use it first, and sure enough- he was right! We at least took pictures of it getting unpacked!
There are several OSHA rules we were breaking... This was how our saw was set up...
Once we made all the cuts on Saturday, we called it a night.
Sunday can only be described as
and some wood
We started out by laying out the headboard
Amanda (my friend has a degree in design and construction which is the ONLY way this project got done) and I nailing the headboard together.
We figured since the only power tools we were using was the drill and sander, (we were done cutting) it was safe to break out the beer.
Me sanding the top piece of the headboard.
There was good music
