Estate Sale headboard & it keeps on rolling

Sometimes I do silly things.

For instance, my daughter has a perfectly good bed. But I went to an estate sale & chanced upon this headboard.


Anyway, I really loved this headboard. So for $25.00, I bought it. Of course, I cleaned it up & gave it some Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White since I had it left over from painting her desk.

I then purchased some really pretty appliques from Etsy (seller, pjsw) to cover the peeling rose decal.

Now, I have this adorable headboard. Kinda cute, no?

First the subway art, then the desk, now the can only imagine what I've been up to. If it turns out good, I'll share the whole room soon.

And....just in case you were wondering...I DID NOT wax this. I preferred to live dangerously rather than go through that again!
