Wood Lego Headboard

5 Materials
Hello Lovelies!
Today, I am so excited to finally share a project that lil dude and I have been working on.
We have actually been slowly but surely giving his bedroom a makeover. We've repainted the walls, built an entertainment/gaming station, built a Lego table and several other decor items for the walls. But the biggest and most time consuming project thus far has been the headboard.
Before....a boring bed!
Since our DIY business uses a ton of pallets, I decided this would be perfect for the rustic Lego look I was going for.
We cut each pallet plank into sizes that would resemble a Lego brick. Next, I picked up 2- 2" wood dowels from the Lowes and cut them into 1/2" slices.
Lil dude was responsible for sanding all the little round disks. About halfway through, he had had enough of me!!! He lost interest rather quickly, but I stayed on the little creature and made him sand every single one!! LOL! Isn't it great being a mom?!?!?!?! I think he sanded close to 200 of them.
Once the glue had dried, we sanded again then applied Daddy Van's Brown Wax. Each brick took on a different shade of brown, which was exactly the look I was going for.
We think it turned out pretty awesome, and lil dude loves it!

A piece of plywood, 2" dowel rods, pallets, 2x6's, 2x3 and a little worker bee and you have a wood Lego headboard!
