Old Fence Turned Into a Headboard

Last summer I found a free listing on Craigslist for a torn down fence. I snagged it and have used it for a TON of projects. I had the upholstered headboard piece, but it just needed a little something. It took me only one evening to chop up the old boards and install them to frame out the upholstered piece.
Rustic, but still cozy.
Love the different colors and amount of weathering.
The lights are super useful

    Beautifully done! I really love this! My niece has some old sections of fence that she and her husband recently had to replace, and now it looks like she's going to loose a few to my 'cause'!! Thanks for sharing!

    This is just amazing! It would be better to make a headboard instead of purchasing. Great Inspiration.
