This is a custom headboard and couple nightstands that were built for the same customer as the Wardrobe/Entertainment Center. It was designed to match in style and color.
The headboard was built with raised panels to match the style of the Wardrobe/Entertainment Center doors. I added some custom dental molding under the top lip. This is the same dental molding that I built to insert into the crown molding in the rest of the room.
On this nightstand, we deviated from the normal wood top, to a top that was made from Formica Solid Surface material. It gave the top had a granite look. We also used Formica laminate on a pull out drink tray above the drawers. Each of the drawers used full extension rails with birch drawer boxes. The base molding was a two piece molding, a solid square stock with a base cap on top. This matched the molding that I applied to the Wardrobe/Entertainment Center, with the exception that it was a little smaller.
The Wardrobe, nightstands, and headboard was one of the larger projects that I’ve completed for just one order. I did separate it into two phases, which was separated by a week for delivery. This was to allow for carpet installation and I gave me a little breathing room.
This is a picture of the Murphy bed built the year befor for the same customer. This is the only picutre I had of it. This is before it was assembled.
