Briarsmoke Whitewashed Headboard

Submitted to Community Café

I decided to make an inexpensive headboard for my spare bedroom. There are two twin beds that are identical and can be used together or separate. My daughter visits often and complains that there's no headboard to lean against. Problem solved!
I simply used 2x4's for the sides, 1x4 horizontal frame with 1x6 vertical boards.
I love (I've said it on this site multiple times) the Varathane Briarsmoke stain, but thought I'd change the look with a white wash. What do you think?  Now I need to make an identical one for the other bed, I may put a top across the top to finish the look.
