Rearranging my bedroom – an Adventure

I love my bedroom. It didn’t do very well in a contest I entered it in on the Apartment Therapy website but I don’t care. It is my haven. I love being in bed cuddling with my two cats and the little dog. Lately I have even let the big dog up for some cuddle time but only on the day the sheets are getting changed. I had fun making the huge headboard. So much fun I have decided to toss it. old-headboardI got a notion to move things around and the new spot for my bed is in front of a window so this headboard won’t work. It will need to be something open and low. I love an excuse to go shopping in vintage/antiques stores. I went to lots and lots. I found nothing. Did you know there are almost no headboards in vintage stores? I don’t know why I didn’t check craigslist to begin with but boy, there are a ton of headboards on there. Just look!craigslist headboardcraigslist headboarda craigslistheadboard

The black one didn’t really do it for me. The other two were fabulous but came with large sets of bedroom furniture and no one would part with just one piece. Then I found this one:my-headboard

My bed is a queen but I don’t mind a little overhang….I hope. The woman I bought it from was so sweet. One never knows who is going to answer the door when on a craigslist adventure. My husband always worries about me and I have to leave him the address and phone number of the places I go.

The headboard has been on my dining room table getting a little make over. I haven’t decided how far I’ll take it but here is a little peek of some gold leaf craziness…gold leaf on a headboardgold leafing

Stay tuned for more makeover magic. I still have to pick new window treatments, curtain rods and bedskirt. Please try to talk me out of painting the room if that comes up…. it probably will. I hate painting. I think I am going to repaint. ahhhh

  1. How cool is that headboard. The gold leaf will be so cool when done I am sure.

    • Thanks! That’s the kind of thing that will encourage me NOT to paint….
