My First big project a king size bed frame for my wife. The head and foot boards are made from poplar.The inserts are roofing tin I chemically rusted. Wifey was very happy. The caps for the columns are attached with rare earth magnets. I put a brace in the columns at 12 inches I am going to put hidden storage boxes in the columns.

Very nice. I like the corrugated tin you used to achieve the rustic look. I just finished treating 15 sheets of corrugated tin with muriatic acid, salt and vinegar to get a weathered look.
What method did you use for treating the tin you used?
