Details about BASEBALL BAT BED HEADBOARD FURNITURE PLANS
baseball bat headboard- It's 150$ just in Bats (if you find them cheap) but it looks so awesome! Maybe I could figure it out with 5 bats and regular wood posts between. I could just add the baseballs to the top of the bed he has now and incorporate a bat too.
