Anthropology Inspired Headboard

You guys, Pinterest is my jam! I got the idea for this headboard from a DIY pin. I made this using wood shims that I carefully cut, placed, stained and glued down. The tricky part was that all the shims were different sizes and thicknesses but that’s what gives this piece such great texture. I achieved the organic earthy tones by staining with weathered grey ,which gives it those soft blue tones, and lightly sanding. I’m so happy with the final product and love the character in this piece.

Excited to share more of my creations and plan to show more of the step by step process.
