We recently bought a new mattress and box spring, and my wife said she’d really like to have a new headboard, preferably bookcase style, for additional storage. Here’s what I came up with. The entire headboard was built completely out of pine. The top features four sliding doors and a shelf above them. On each side at the bottom, a door opens to reveal a large area that is the width of the headboard, with enough room she can even store extra bed pillows. This has added a lot of extra storage space, and she’s very happy with it.

Very nicely done! You did an exceptional job choosing and matching your grain. The finishing gives it a very rich appearance. I love practical furniture that has extra storage space.
