Today was a good day. I got the head board and the foot board completed and I was able to start the sanding process. The picture above shows you my progress thus far!
I have never used a sander before, but it was fairly simple to figure out! I was going to try and sand by hand! Oh man, am I glad I didn’t!!! Not only would I be completely crippled right now unable to type, I would have not gotten as far as I did today! Well worth the $50.00 bucks!!
I was hoping to stain for the finish, but I think I have too many mistakes to get away with that! So I now need to decide on a color. My son’s theme in his room is dinosaurs and his bedding has two main colors, red and navy blue. I am leaning towards red. Boys are often associated with blue, so I think red would be a fun and bold color! Got any suggestions for me???
