I'm always inspired by handy women...

Happy Halloween! I'm surprised my kids are still sleeping. My oldest is so excited to go trick or treating tonight. I'm excited to hang out with family and do our annual Halloween get together. The girls stay inside and eat lots of good food while the men take the kiddos out in the cold to get more unwanted candy. Hopefully you all have a fun-filled day! Onto the real post....

A while back I saw an image on Emily A. Clark's blog of a wall paneled headboard that she had seen on a home tour. Later, she had posted pictures of a reader that had repeated this same look in her daughters room. I'm a huge fan of wall paneling, I love the dimension and visual interest it adds to a room so naturally the images stuck in my head.

My friend was on the hunt for a headboard but nothing was quite clicking. I told her of a few local furniture stores that could potentially have the right fit. After no success, I had remembered the images of the headboards. I found the blog posts and forwarded them to her, she love what she saw and went to work. She had the necessary tools and paint for the project. Her out of pocket expenses for the mdf wood came to $30. Such an affordable project and I love the end result. I really like that she did the paneling a different color than the wall, I think it really pops! What an accomplishment that she built this herself. I would be too intimidated to tackle a project of this scope. I admire you ladies that aren't afraid to get out the hammer, saw, paint and create beautiful results!

I LOVE these headboards! Great idea, now if I can only convince my husband to move our bed between the two windows in our master. I found your blog thru 6th Street, it is lovely. You have great taste.
