Emma's Headboard

I decided a couple of months ago that we should get a queen sized bed for Emma's room. This will make it so that we have a place for guests to stay when they visit (since almost our whole family is moving to Texas).

I was on the hunt for a headboard that I could refinish (in my price range!). I was at my BIL and SIL's house, helping them pack, and found that this was on it's way to Goodwill.


I snatched it up! It was exactly what I had been looking for AND it was free!
This is what it looks like now.




I loved the process of refinishing and rebeautifying (I know, I made that up) this piece. It was really fun!
I have a few more things I've been working on...I'll be sure to let you know when they're show worthy!

I'm linking to these fun places:
