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.
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.
