One of the basic facts which happen to all is the question: who needs a costly rustic headboard like target offers for example (not less than 200?$) when it is RUSTIC by the definition and you can construct a less expensive one that is similarly as exquisite from a real rustic wood? Let's go to a lumber yard and ask for the cheapest piece of wood they have. Prices can vary from 40$ to 400$ for a big wooden piece. Buy your wood from a lumber yard rather than in a big store.
Paint your wood and leave to dry well. Use citistrip and strip a few layers of paint off the newly painted headboard. Don’t take all the paint off to reach cool #distressedlook. Brew 8 bags of tea and wiped it onto the headboard with a washcloth and let it dry overnight. Make vinegar/steel wool mixture: put a few steel wool pads in a mason jar and then covering the pads with vinegar. Then leave the jar in the garage for a few days so the steel wool can dissolve a little into the vinegar. Apply on beadboard and let dry
Finish with wood wax
