Reclaimed Wood Headboard

A custom headboard made in a sort of quilted style, using a mix of cool salvaged wood pieces with a variety of colors and textures in a solid field with staggered seams.  It's made primarily from oak and yellow pine. Some of the pine was treated with steel wool and vinegar stain. The oak is barn salvaged from the Albright Farm in Cedar Grove, NC. The pine is from a variety of lots from Durham, NC, bungalows built in the 1920s and 1930s. These boards were baseboards, door casings, flooring, and sheathing in their previous lives. There are a few pieces of pallet wood mixed in as well. This piece has lots of cool distress- worm trails and beetle holes, saw marks and nail holes. The back braces are made of yellow pine framing lumber from the 1920s, and I notched them out to fit the baseboard so that it fits snugly against the wall in it's new home.
