~ This weekend’s theme ~
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.
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! ~
Ladders aren’t just for climbing anymore. Go ahead and play with a ladder and see you next weekend!
~ SNS blah blah linkup rules ~
