BUT, all week long this silly $10 headboard kept popping in to my crafty brain. It kept saying, "I am not a headboard, I am a beautiful architectual wall hanging, buy me, bring me home, let me be beautiful." (I know, it can't talk but that is what I was hearing.)
I have seen many beautiful pieces of furniture out there in blogland that started out gaudy and dated given a new lease on life with a coate of paint. So, when I was back on the west side of town over the weekend I swung through the Habistore and it was still there (elation)...I picked it up and carried it up to the check out. When I got it home I loved it even more. I immediately got out the drill and pulled it apart. I grabbed the can of creamy white spray paint I had bought for a different project and went to work.
Here she is...isn't she amazing. They need another coat of paint but I am in love. My plan was to put these in our new guest room, but while sitting on the couch last night and looking at our beautiful new Behr Pure Earth paint on the walls, I had an idea...what would they look like in that great big opening above our fireplace. So I grabbed a couple of them and propped them up. Even my husband loves the look.
Only problem is, it would be awesome if we had 4 of these beauties - sadly there are only 3. One idea is to hang them vertical one on top of each other, 2 verticle with one horizontal and then add a wrought iron piece, or ....???? So until we come up with a plan, I guess we will just lean two in the giant opening. We both love, love, love the contrast of the creamy white against the earthy beige.
This love story is to be continued...
