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:

  2. Oh, my goodness! Love, love, LOVE the way it turned out! That color is perfect, and you did a great job with distressing it. Thanks for showing us pics! =^)

  3. you did a great job. it looks so much better painted white. the detail & corners that you sanded off looks great & sets it apart.

  4. LOVE it! It looks fantastic.

  5. What a difference some paint makes. What is the brand & color that you used?

    Talk to you soon ;)

  6. Lucky! That's beautiful--you did a great job. Maybe I need to be on the lookout for somebody who needs help packing!

  7. Great job the detail really shines through with the new paint!!

  8. Thanks, ladies! Bunny Jean, the color is Sherwin Williams Iviore. It was left over from repainting my master bath!
