Headboard Made From A Shade!

29 July 2010

I got an email of a reader who used our headboard tutorial for one of her own.  I really love the way it looks.  So I asked Mallory of Classy Clutter if I could show off here fabulous handy work.  (And I have to say, thanks Mallory for your sweet compliments!)  Here is what she had to say:

Well, I was browsing one of my FAVORITE DIY blogs Remodelaholic and found that I was having the same issue with wanting a new/cute headboard! I couldn't find anything I lovedthat wouldn't blow my budget! Remodelaholic to the rescue! I used her headboard tutorial for the most part. She used cabinet doors and I used an old window shutter so I, meaning my sweet hubby, had to make a few adjustments. I was excited to test my limits with the power tools and I had so much fun with this! I love it in my bedroom! It just adds the pop of color I needed (I used Krylon Cherry Red), since we are renting and I can't really paint my walls :(

We started with this shutter that I bought from ReStore for $5!

My sweet hubby, Craig, helping me make some cuts!
Everything all put together
I used Krylon Cherry Red (I love Krylon spray paint!)

The final product!

I love the red on the white wall since the landlords don't want us to paint...
I also have a gorgeous mirror that I will be hanging above the bed soon.

(My pillows look a little sad and droopy! Time for new fluffier pillows!)

What do you think?

My opinion?  I LOVE it!  
I think she did a beautiful job,... and I love the red!  Stunning!
Doesn't this just inspire you!

It looks fantastic! I love it. And brilliant color choice since she can't paint the walls. Nice!

Very striking - especially the red posts on the white with the black and white comforter. Very stylish and a good alternative to painting.

I love the shiny red! I think your hubby Craig did a nice job and you had a brilliant idea. The headboard looks great. I agree with you that the bedding looks a little sad but just put some bright cheery linens on it and it will look just perfect.

Thanks for sharing all these wonderful ideas.
Happy Day
