My New Headboard

  I am very happy with it.

My bed is so huge I might still need to lift the headboard a tad bit taller
Here is the headboard I had on my bed before It was so pretty but just way to small for my huge king size bed. But don't worry I did not get rid of this beauty it has a new place now I will show on my blog soon.

I found this headboard on craigslist for 50 bucks.
It was nice enough this weekend, that I could finally get back to painting outside! I did spray paint this, even though usually something so large I wouldn't. But since it has the kane backing I did ( I am not sure you can see if much in the photo but it is the lighter part) because I did not want the paint to the clump up in the kane area. It actually only took 1 & 1/2 cans of kilz spray primer and 2 cans of Krylon bright white satin spray paint.

Here is a close of the kane part.

 I ordered this applique from
You can't tell in the photo, but this applique is really big. I and going to but it on the top center of the headboard, I am super excited for it to come. But I was too excited about my new headboard to wait to do a post on it, so I'll do another after I add the applique

I took night time pictures and

day light pictures.

  11. Hi Janae!

    Your old headboard was very pretty but this one is better proportioned for the bed. The large applique will really give it some character and be very pretty.

    Thanks for sharing this at my party this week!
