Truck Headboard

It was time to turn boring wood furniture into something more fun and masculine for my tween. Everything in the room got a makeover.
Including this twin headboard for his queen sized bed. (I know; it's not right.) With a small 9'x 11' bedroom and a much needed window in the way, the twin sized headboard fits best.
While reversing some bead-board paneling, and cut to fit inside the frame, I screwed it on.
Painting with primer and paint in one, in an off white, gave me a blank canvas.
That "hard-to-draw-on-canvas" showed my "rough" sketch of an old 50's truck grill well enough to paint.

(Don't pay much attention to the sloppiness. It was just a sketching to place where I had to paint and what.)
I attempted some color. Kind of poster looking, but it serves the purpose.
Then, I painted the frame and added push on/off lights and a motorcycle license plate before mounting on the wall.
