These are hand-made headboards built using reclaimed pallet wood. This Kachemak Bay design came to be when a cherished, homesick customer requested it after moving to the continental USA from Homer, Alaska on the Kachemak Bay. Though they might have left the last frontier state, they managed to bring a bit of it's serene ruggedness into their home decor and I was honored to help!
The design's key feature is the random and sporadic areas of distressed white against a rich overall walnut wash, completed with optional black lamps. By default, the headboard will have flat/squared edges, but you can also have it done with the staggered-edges as seen in some of my other headboard designs - just mention it in the "notes" section while ordering. I design and build each one individually and the layout of each is completely different. No two are the same! I also sort through the lumber to look for boards that noticeably have a lot of character. Knots, holes, bark, rot, etc that make each piece special. I leave nail heads in the wood and any stamping/writing as well. Lots of character. With all of this being said, your headboard will not look exactly like any of the ones pictures, obviously. These are just examples of ones that I have created and yours would be SIMILAR. Headboards are sanded and triple coated with a polyacrylic. The back side of the headboards are sealed, but unstained. They are designed to have the legs be mounted to a standard metal bed frame. The headboards will be approximately 10 inches wider than your mattress (5 inches longer on each side). Please do message me if you need custom/specific dimensions for your space!

!!NOTICE!! Some assembly is required. The headboard will arrive in 4 or 5 large pieces and will require screws to be driven into the back of the piece. A screw gun or drill with philips bits are highly recommended. All instructions and hardware will be provided.

SIZE: **Choose At Checkout** Use the dropdown menu to choose your bed size.

LAMPS: **Choose At Checkout** Use the dropdown to choose with or without lamps. Lamps now have pull-chain switches, they DO NOT have wall switches as seen in the photos above


Again, I build these myself at home, so please excuse the production time. I've tried to build these headboards in an assembly line style of production, but they began to look very similar and cookie-cutter duplicates. That's not what I want to send out there. I've got back to making them one at a time, from start to finish, and completely unique to itself. If you have any other questions at all, please feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear from you! :)

This was an AMAZING custom piece! Our bedroom is designed around when we lived in Okinawa, Japan – so our color palette is very specific. I sent my ideas and inspiration photo to Adam. He was wonderful! He was willing to take on the challenge and really put some thought into how to translate the photo to a headboard. He checked in with me consistently, and allowed me a chance to view the piece as it was being made to ensure it was what I was looking for. The headboard came disassembled and VERY carefully wrapped. At first I was nervous about figuring out how to put this together, having bad experiences with "IKEA" type purchases. But his instructions were SO clear! Everything was pre-drilled, screwed, and marked so lining stuff up was easy. Took not even 15 minutes. I can't endorse Adam and Custom Nature enough. This is perfect!

We are so pleased with this custom headboard!! I was searching for something unique to be the focal point of our bedroom, and the designs with reclaimed wood really appealed. The headboard turned out gorgeous, and I'm so glad we went with the lamp additions. Adam (seller) was very helpful and responsive, and his work is beautiful. We were easily able to assemble and install it.

This headboard exceeded all expectations and I am so happy with the purchase! The light assembly was so easy to follow - I was able to put together by myself in under 30 minutes. Adam was extremely helpful and responsive to my questions - an absolute pleasure to work with. Cannot recommend this enough!

I just love the headboard Adam made for us. I asked if he could customize our headboard to create a lighter look, keeping the rustic feel while adding a splash of color for a beach house. He was very helpful and responsive, skillfully working our request into his design. A very professional and talented craftsman!
