This is my first real woodworking project. I have very few tools but have always found woodworking interesting. My wife and I have only had a metal bed frame since we were married 15 years ago and she has always said she wanted an upholstered head board. I figured it would be a good first project and since I was covering most of it with fabric I could hide any imperfections. It’s not perfect but turned out better then I expected. And more importantly, my wife was extremely happy with it! And I learned a lot in the process and had a blast doing it. Can’t wait to do the next project!

Also, after finishing the bed the wife had me build the shelves on each side of the bed.
