An update in the Master Bedroom..A new headboard!

Hello Blogger Friends...Hope everyone had a wonderful summer! This summer was a busy time for me ...Between the kids and work, I did not have much time to update you on my projects around the house.
Not to mention, we got a new one of THESE!
I had forgot how much WORK a new puppy is!

Last time we talked, I was working on my son's room...I had a bit of a "set back" with his dresser...I'll update you later on how that all turned out.

 Since I had some time...(kids back in school) YEA!.....I thought I would update you on my latest Master Bedroom project.
TA DA, a new headboard......I am very happy with the cleaner look it gives my room.
  
Whoa!...It seems forever ago, that I was working on the makeover in my Master Bedroom, you can read about it here.
You may remember last spring, I had put up the stencil and MDF and was trying to decide if I should have a headboard or not.

Headboard?...no Headboard?

...My old headboard was a cheap "brass bed", $5 at a garage sale and then spray painted with Krylon Oil Bronze.....No love lost on that! HAHA!...I figured it was time to move it out and try something new.

More like this....

Here is how I made it......

Cut a plywood board 76x31, double wrapped it in quilt batting. Used a 6x9 painters drop cloth for the cover. Since we already had the plywood, left over from another project, this headboard project was a "cheapy"...about $40 for materials.

To give the headboard some personality, I added some salvaged upholstery nail heads......I got them from these chairs, I am finishing for a client.
 

Since we wanted to hang the headboard on the wall, hubby added to the back, anchored in with screws, 2 heavy duty hanging hooks to the back...
Here's one more look.

There are a few more changes/updates in the Master Bedroom.....Stay tuned!
Thanks for coming by!

  13. Really pretty! I love it ... and I'm a HUGE fan of drop cloth as material. In fact, I have a whole Etsy shop devoted to drop cloth pillows ...

  14. Lisa, it's fabulous! Love it. Well done - the nail head is my favorite part. Still love the trim work behind the bed! The bedroom looks fabulous. Thanks for the comment on my post at Primitive and Proper - what color of what did you end up deciding on for your home? I love that you did so much white.

  17. Lisa,
    Happy to see ya at my party:) Your thrifty headboard looks outstanding (not thrifty at all). I have wanted to make a headboard for my master for about 5 years now, showing this one to the hubs, so maybe I will get one soon.

    Blessings,
    Linda
