Custom Headboard

My Brother and Sister in law recently re-did their master bedroom.

They painted the walls a beautiful bird's egg blue and added a feature wall behind the bed in a chocolate brown.

They originally planned to use an old door as a headboard, but my brother is a little obsessed with symmetry and they couldn't find one with equal panels.    So ... Bruce made one.   He is an amazing finish carpenter and can build anything.

Using MDF, he added panels.
Routed out the inside edges
added crown
and the top
then multiple coats of paint and sanding ... and VOILA
 My sister in law, Donna, made all the pillows, and the pictures are from a recent trip to London and Paris that they had printed on canvas.  Beautiful and truly personalized.
