Last night I sucked it up and finished Jude's headboard. My back hurt so bad by the time I was done (since I did it all on the floor), but it was worth the pain because I LOVE how it turned out!!
Hooray for progress! I'm really surprised how much I've gotten done in his room in 6 months, especially when I see the before picture.
I'm going to wait a few days to start on the other headboard, you know give my back some time to straighten out again.
