I needed a good excuse to post because it's been awhile, and Donna's Saturday Nite Special party fit the bill. Her blog, Funky Junk Interiors, hosts a great party every weekend. There are always lots of great participants with great projects. It's become so popular that she now divides it into 3 categories -- Home Decor, Sewing Crafts Cooking, and a Special Theme. This week's special theme is Headboards. So this is an old project of mine, but I've never posted it before -- now I will just so I can join the party, and have a reason to post. Thanks Donna!
Nothing ground-breaking here, but I always liked the way this headboard-turned-shelf turned out -- especially since I got it from the curb. I thought the headboard was cute, but one of the legs was broken (probably why some unvisionary person threw it out). I removed the legs, added a 1x6 (with little support pieces underneath), attached some trim I had removed from it, gave it a pale yellow paint job, and distressed it. I was pretty pleased with the outcome!
On a side note (non-headboard related), I have been MIA lately and that's why I was happy to have a reason to post. I haven't created anything that I could photograph yet. I've mostly been busy working on my shop. Space is always an issue, and I had some extra space over the wintertime, but that was just for temporary and I had to move everything back into my one unit (ARGH!). And I really need to host another sale. So I've been working a lot and making progress on that, but nothing I could report -- yet. Next week I hope to be able to share a lot more about all of that. Stay tuned!
