Remember that queen headboard from Craigslist?
I finally checked that project off the
"Fixing To Do" list.
I didn't distress the headboard yet, or
darken it with dark wax.
I'm not sure if I'll leave it white. It
depends on what color I paint the walls.
But, for now, it seems to brighten up
I'm looking for two smaller wood
bedside tables that I can paint.
The ones we have are too large and too
dark. We bought them for the king-size
bed frame, then we decided to go down
to a queen.
I found an old comforter and pillow
shams in a closet. I think they're from
around 1997 when I was in my
"I'm a little bit country" days.
Yes, I'm a hoarder, no doubt!
We're using these temporarily until we
decide what color we'll paint the walls
and then we'll find bedding to match.
I bought a bed skirt at Pottery Barn
last Sunday. I'm hoping the wrinkles
fall out by themselves.
I put our bench at the foot of the bed,
but it looks odd so I removed it.
I haven't told Wild Bill yet, but I'm
thinking he could build a foot-board
like the headboard.
Here's a photo of the back.
I think maybe a 4x4 with a fence
cap and a round thingy on top.
I actually have four similar round thingies,
left over from an old bed frame we had.
And four of the fence caps too!
I told you I was a hoarder, right?
Well, one down...
and about 98 other projects to go!
What are you planning to finish this year?
I'm joining parties here this week:
