For those of you who have reading my blog for some time, you may recall our son and daughter-in-law got married a year and half ago. I shared the DIY wedding rehearsal dinner that we did for their wedding. As a wedding gift for our children, my husband has made a piece of furniture. The couple gets to select what they would like. They usually find a photo of the piece of furniture they like; and my husband builds it for them. While preparing for the rehearsal dinner, my sister and brother-in-law were talking to my husband asking if he would be interested in a walnut tree that went down in their grove. Of course, we jumped on that offer. There was, however, quite a delay when the tree went to the mill. While at the mill, the owner had a fire and had to rebuild his kiln....thus we had to wait for the wood to get milled for almost a year.
Once we had the wood, my husband went to work preparing the wood. He then built the wood part of the bed. Once he had that completed, we invited our son and daughter-in-law to help us assemble the tufted part of the bed.
We made the tufted headboard using the same technique we used when we made our tufted headboard back in 2010.
