Headboard Makeover

BEFORE....I know it's not a horrible before, but I get tired of looking at the same old thing every day!  Every thing is so dark in my bedroom.  I'm thinking, just thinking, of painting my furniture all over again....argh!  I know I'm crazy but I'm tired of black!  I want a bedroom that's light and airy, full of chic antiques and screams character...until then, I'll just paint my headboard.

AFTER.... I really do love how it turned out.  It actually looks better in person I think.  I just painted it with a $5 oops paint at, of all places, Wal-Mart.  I think this gallon is going to go a long way!  I added a $10 decorative piece found at Home Depot.  I find it much easier to nail the deco piece with very small finishing nails then messing with glue!

Some more after pictures...

Now I think I'm ready to change my wall....


  1. Love the blue and the white bedding. Looks like you've been busy.

  2. Thanks Alysa! Now I think I'm ready to change my wall.....just not sure exactly how to do it because it's sooo textured! I think it will be a lot of work :(

  3. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon! headboard noise
