Rustic Bed Made From Barn Siding

My wonderful niece Sara asked me to build her a queen bed made from Barn Siding. I purchased a batch of Barn Siding taken from a barn in Hamilton, Ohio. The wood was bought in very rough condition and needed to be tamed. The process was fun as I was able to use all my creative skills in the design and creation. Notice how the headboard shows the distress of the wood in a very manicured way. I finished the bed with a hard black and clear wax that makes the wood feel soft. I hope Sara has many nights of restful sleep on her new bed.
