How To Make A Cable Spool Headboard

cable spool headboard

Industrial artifacts can add umph to whatever style you've chosen to go with. How about we stick some Louis XIV side tables like these in the room?

What you need:
cable spool - you can usually get these free from telephone companies or other companies that regularly use large quantities of electrical wire and cables
hammer
sandpaper or mouse sander
tung oil or varnish
black marker pen

What to do:
1. Remove the top from the spool - the guys at the yard will probably do this for you. While you're there get them to saw the spool across the bottom to give it better stability.
2. Pound down nails that may be sticking out with a hammer
3. Sand the spool thoroughly and darken the lettering with your marker pen
4. Finish it off with a coat of tung oil or varnish
