After months of looking for the perfect headboard, I stumbled across one, literally, at a yard sale. On my way to check out a small lamp I had spotted, I tripped over a headboard in my haste. Guess you could say I was head over heels in love with it at first sight!
The faux shutter-look headboard had good bones. It was a sturdy oak that had been painted blue. I saw potential! For the low price of $10.00 that headboard came home with me.
Usually my hubby rolls his eyes in my direction when I bring stuff home from yard sales and then promptly asks me where I am going to put it, but this time was different! He knew with a little bit of TLC, it would be perfect for our coastal themed bedroom!
The shutters were a booger to paint but I persevered. After a couple of coats of Décor White by Behr, I shabbied it up a bit.
My wonderfully talented and always willing to help hubby built some legs for it and now it graces the head of our bed and I couldn’t be happier!
By the way, Paula Deen has a shuttered headboard in her home furnishings collection and it doesn’t cost $10.00!!!
