Our Custom Homemade Head Board

We also got our bedroom changed around and finally made a custom headboard.  Lance is so super good at being handy in all aspects of things around the house.  I feel so fortunate to have him in my life.  He used up some old ply board we had left over from our Bathroom Remodeling last summer.  He cut 2-6 1/2" by 6 foot slats for the bottom and scalloped the edge of another 18" wide by 6 foot slat for the top.We made a trip to Jo Ann Fabrics to pick up some fabric and were able to finish the headboard in one day.  The fabric we found was a Chenille upholstery that was on clearance...WOO HOOO  I love a bargain.  We really love how it turned out.  It allowed us to place our bed in a corner of the room, finally bring out our new duvet cover and pillows, and put the television on a wall that didn't blur the screen with incoming sunlight.  Now all that is left is to paint the walls and move the red/orange painting to another room....another day for that project though. 

I will be featuring this project on Monday, August 8th at Creative Scrapbooking Divas . . . be sure to visit the Mansion for more details on the project!!! 

I am also linking this project up to You Had Me At Craft:  Made It Myself Mondays
