~ This weekend’s theme ~
Refurbished headboards

I have a confession. I chose the headboard category so I’d be forced to get going on this cute foot board I’m creating to sell. Unfortunately, this is how far I got… nice tools! :)

Ah well… it’ll be adorable when it’s done up the way I envision it. I’ll reveal it one day! :)

But I have done a headboard project in the past that I am still completely and utterly in love with.

I LOVE refurbished headboards. And I fell in love with this one when I found it at the thrift. The vintage non fussy lines were just beautiful in my eyes.

After painting it white and glazing it with a medium mocha tone, I mounted it alongside some hooks from Ikea. I also painted and glazed the original hook base to match the headboard.

These thrift numbers had been a recent thrift store haul, so I put them to work.

Before.

After.

This once rather boring bathroom wall is now a fun and productive focal point. And I am in LOVE with all those hooks! (Sorry, this old photo totally needed a new photo shoot. Lookit those shadows! :) )

And using authentic house numbers added abit of 3D fun!

Paint tip: I used a quality brush for painting to create brush strokes for a more vintage feel. The glaze captured the brush strokes perfectly and really does simulate someone repainting an old piece. It would not be the same result if the strokes weren’t there.

Below is the themed refurbished headboard link. I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with. :)

Next week’s themed linkup is …

Ladders aren’t just for climbing anymore. Go ahead and play with a ladder and see you next weekend!

    ~Liz

  2. How fun! I’ve been wanting to make something with numbers, I just love them lately. I’ve also been needing/wanting to spruce up our bedroom! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I can see that you love taking the mundane and making it marvelous as much as I do! Terrific headboard transformation.

    I’m hosting a great giveaway at the cottage. Be sure to click the button in my sidebar for the details. There are eight more days to enter.

  4. Hello Miss Donna,

    Thanks ever so much for your feedback the other day. In case you ever need to reach me in the future, my email is simple:
    decortoadore@hotmail.com

    I had never thought about commenting in the comment section. Perhaps that is because I read a post once and move on. I know you take polls, I would love to find out how many people actually read the comments or even come back to read more comments. :)

    Now for SNS. LOVE the headboard transformation. I see great things in your future lady.

    As for me I did read your rules about selecting ONE area but none fit. Because technically my entry this week would probably be considered self improvement. But it is a great DIY that I would like to share with anyone who might need it.
    So please don’t delete me and better yet, come over and read the post.

    Be blessed dear one.

  5. Hi Donna, What an awesome idea for your bathroom wall! I love the numbered headboard turned into a towel holder. Thank you for hosting such a fun party each week. I’m really enjoying seeing what you and your participants come up with each week.
    Hugz,
    Kim

  6. Just wanted to let you know I have an award waiting for you at C.R.A.F.T.! Also, tomorrow is making Monday’s marvelous, and I would love for you to join the party!

  7. Fantastic! I love it! Just absolutely love it!!!!! Maybe you can help – what can I do w/a beautiful old mantel? There is no room to put in a faux fireplace. . . . but the mantle is gorgeous & I dearly want to use it somewhere in the cabin.

    Anyway – great job w/the headboard!

  8. I would like to appreciate the work of blog author that the person provided us with an extremely excellent information regarding the topic. Ireally learned something from this blog and started to contribute my ideas via commenting on this blog. Keep it up

  9. You’ll be able to update your profile regularly and share photos with friends easily! The B3310 is also equipped with an FM tuner with RDS and an MP3 player feature, which make it a true pocket-sized computer as well as a mobile phone.

  10. As you put your computer through its paces installing and uninstalling software your System folder gathers a ton of DELL files. Over time, you’ll accumulate DELL files you no longer need hogging disk space and causing your system to run sluggishly. Clean System Directory scans your system looking for all references to DELL files in your System directory. When it finds DELL files that have no programs calling them,
