Hooray for Headboards
Hello All, I hope everyone had a splendid weekend. I feel accomplished in that I finished off a couple of projects that are being posted on my other blog.
But this post is to share this headboard I scored for FREE. Yep, that's right FREE. A week ago I was checking behind a local shopping center for "finds" when low and behold the first dumpster I came across had this twin size headboard leaning up against the railing. No, it wasn't inside the dumpster; so technically it wasn't dumpster diving. It took a bit of tugging and pulling to get inside my mini SUV; but I managed. I've already wiped it down and started to sanded. But I thought I'd better get a before picture because I tend to get excited about projects and forget to take one. I don't think the makeover will take very long; but since I only work on my projects on weekends; it may be a couple of weeks. I haven't decided on a color for this; so if you have suggestions - I would welcome them. Paint colors in stock are: babbling brook by Valspar; Dallas Cowboy Gray by Behr (old); a dark green exterior paint from Walmart (old); Creamy Linen by Farmhouse Paint; and Almond oil based pay by Rustoleum. I don't really want to buy more paint; so those are the choices to pick from. I also have some cover stain; but have learned that priming and painting tends to be a long process between coats because of my schedule and weather.
