    Stain….regular stain? Gel stain? I am getting a cool bed that I think might be part laminate and I am doing this! Love it!

    Did you finish it with poly or anything?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes, we did. I just added that info to the post a I forgot it. We added two coats of poly in a satin finish.

    Love the headboard. Perfect.

    You mention the girls… are they your children or friends? I recently started following you. Do the girls ever want stuff back after you work your magic?

    Absolutely gorgeous! Did you use some “white” paint or wax, I see white in some of the grooves throughout the headboard. Thanks for sharing.
