We slightly modified this plan from Ana White (LOVE that site) to fit our preferences for our King sized bed. I had Jared play A LOT with the stain to get it to where I was happy.

Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures during the staining because it was a multi day process and Jared mostly did it on his own.

For the stain he used a combination of Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Sunbleached and Minwax Wood Finish in Ebony
