I'm back. I enjoyed my time of lameness, but now I'm hoping to get back on track with this blogging thing. We'll see how it goes :0)
For the longest time I have wanted a new headboard. The one we had didn't fit the bed frame so it was just kind of leaned up against the wall and even the slightest movement would result in a loud bang (not very restful) So I began my search for a new headboard. I wasn't sure if I wanted a wooden one, or a metal one, a fancy on or a plain one. I did know that I wanted a cheap one.
I finally realized that what I really wanted was a headboard made out of an old door. You see them everywhere and I love how simple they are. I made my way up to the Re-Store in Ballard and found EXACTLY what I was looking for. Seriously, how often does that happen? I wanted a five panel door that wasn't too wide. Boom, there it was (if I didn't know better I would have sworn it was back lit and I could hear angels singing) Best part, 20 bucks and she was mine.
Here is what she looked like in her "before" stage. I probably could have done more to her, but I'm lazy. I just hit it with a palm sander and slapped a couple coats of paint.
Once she was all painted Joj and Jim attached a french cleat to the back (I am now an official fan of french cleats, those babies are great) and hung it on my wall.It has that clean line cottage feel to it and it is very "me"
I LOVE it.
I LOVE it.
It was definitely 20 bucks well spent.
