Here is yet another steal of a deal that I picked up at my friends $1 thrift store. (Yes you heard my right--I got this beauty for 1 dollar!!!!)
I LOVE THAT STORE!! I am a little bit addicted to it!!!
ANYWAYS, I found what I thought was a beautiful, yet very scratched up headboard and thought it had potential so I bought it. When I got it home my hubby informed me that it was actually a FOOT BOARD not a HEAD BOARD. But being the clever little guy that he is--said he would do some magic and make it into a headboard.
So--this is the bare bones of what he came up with--just using stuff we already had (OK--so I fibbed just a little--we had some plywood at home but it had been outside so it was a little gross looking--so instead of using our plywood he did buy some new stuff--but it wouldn't have cost us anymore if we would have used the stuff on hand).
Since we were planning on painting it white to match our room, he wanted to keep a nice white edge all the way down to the floor on the sides--so if any of it was peaking out behind the bed you wouldn't see the plywood. So he used some pieces of white MDF that we had on hand and screwed them and the headboard all into the plywood at the back.
My hubby sanded and primed it--and I painted it and POOF--we have a NEW HEADBOARD!
I feel SO grown up in a big girls bed!!!
