Wood Shop, Part Third
The headboard is finished!
Here it is in the hallway. The finish is supposed to be "espresso", but in order to achieve the look, I first coated all wood surfaces with flat black paint. Then I coated all surfaces with "Kona Brown", available from Home Depot. Both coats were sprayed on. The final coat was Minwax Polyshades Bombay Mahogany applied with a sponge.
The crown molding at the top is not exactly what I wanted, but it will do for now. If I find the right molding, I can easily replace it.
