You know the feeling when you have something big coming up and you’re against the clock trying to get everything done? We’re having Friendsgiving at our house this weekend, so I’m in a big push to get a lot of the half done projects complete. This feeling to complete everything is less because my friends care what my house looks like and more because all of the half done projects are living in the dining room, in the exact spot where people are going to need to eat!
One of the smaller projects was this bench that I’ve been working on since August. Yes, over three months ago.
If you’ll remember, I was near complete with this bench, when I hit an unfortunate snag. The snag being that the entire thing fell apart. I had used pine wood not thinking about how soft the wood was and how easily it splinters. As soon as I put the weight of the top on the bench, the entire thing collapsed.

The final layer of my master bedroom project is complete! I finished my headboard this weekend, and I am so excited about how it turned out. After the initial planning, measuring, and cutting of the base wood, the upholstery went really fast. And if you’re curious about using nailhead trim, use it. I’ve done traditional nailheads on a project before, and it was painfully tedious. Nailhead trim, however, was actually really fun to apply.
Whenever I have a vision like the layering of shelf, headboard, side table in my mind, I’m always just a little worried that I’ll work really hard on one of the pieces of the puzzle and then not like the way it fits in. The entire time I’m covering and hammering there was about 5% of me that was worried it just wouldn’t look right in the room.
I’m happy to say that not only do I love the finished product itself, but I love it in the room as well. To see more of the actual headboard creation process, keep reading!
