I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was wonderful and was spent with my son and my parents here at my home. I'm sorry to have the season come to an end, but I also enjoy clearing out the decorations and beginning the new year with a fresh clean look
a headboard. Well Wednesday I finally hit pay dirt!!! I found a gentleman who had 12 doors that he used as wall partitions in his t-shirt shop. They were kept indoors and because so, were very clean. The original price was $60 each or $50.00 each if I bought 2 more. He kindly agreed to sell them to me for $40.00 each so for $120.00 I built this fabulous headboard!!
I screwed a tin ceiling tile on the diagonal to give it some more interest. (I'm hoping hubby will use the magnetic surface to leave me little love notes
) And then to add even more character, I scrounged the pediment above them from my studio. (It looks better here anyway.)
I'm thrilled with the way it turned out! I'd like to eventually replace the side lamps with some swing arm lamps mounted to the doors so reading in bed will be a little easier.
I hope you have a happy and safe New Year celebration!! It's gonna be a great year, I can feel it in my bones!!!!
