The Crowning Glory...

I have been slaving away for the past 2 weeks (yes literally two weeks) to create a headboard for our master bedroom. (It didn't actually take that long, but I was waiting on supplies, being lazy, and well just tired after work)

We recently re decorated our bedroom. Not sure if you can actually call it re-decorating if its previous decor consisted of John Deere signs and mix-matched bedding, more like overhauling. You can read about our bedroom redo here. Oh how I love the combination of colors, and the funky and eclectic feel to the room, but something was definitely missing. Can you see what it is...

Okay, take an even closer look....

Oh yes, definitely missing a crucial part of our bedroom...a Headboard. You can see just how big of a problem our lack of a head board posed with the new bed in front of the window configuration. Smooshed up curtains and lots of pillow propping to be able to watch t.v. and I was officially fed-up. I perused many of my favorite home sites only to be amazed at just how expensive a king sized upholstered head board really is. After a brief moment of discouragement I decided that I (well really my hubs) could create our own. So we did!

I couldn't be happier with the results...

Sorry...not a great picture by any means. I was a teeny bit tired by this point (read: don't care about blog pics at the moment)

It's a gray velvety fabric with nail head trim. I'll post a full how-to tomorrow, as this was not the easiest project I have tackled and hopefully I can spare you some of my pain frustration if you want to attempt your own. 

One last photo opt of my brand spankin new head board! Clearly I am in love...
