I’ve built this a couple times over the years. This headboard was discontinued with Pottery Barn and the customers had other pieces like the platform and wanted to add the headboard later. Since it was discontinued they had a problem.

It actually worked out better for them. They got to adjust the design to make it more personal, by adding what they like.

We matched the color using a dye coat, then a normal stain coat, followed by the clear coat finish. We got the sample directly from Pottery Barn. Here is a picture of their sample on the headboard:

This bed was finished in February 2014 with some of the building being done in January 2014

Looks good. Nice job on matching the stain color. It was so close it took me a while to figure out what you where trying to show in the picture until I finally saw the sample piece on top of your headboard.
Well done.
