The Big Reveal: Headboard

I'm so excited to be posting about this today! We, yes WE, finished our headboard yesterday afternoon and it turned out exactly as I'd hoped. If you remember from this post, we started with a severely-lacking-a-headboard master bedroom. Here's a quick flashback:



Such a sad looking master! Our king bed is amazing and we love the bedding we have as well.. but it doesn't feel like a true master. Where's the impact? Not anywhere to be seen, that's for sure! So, off we went on a mission to build a frame for our existing upholstered headboard. And the results are fabulous! 

But first, here are a few progress shots. This is not going to be a tutorial because I already shared the plans I used (modified from tutorial here) but I wanted to show you how we got from the 'before' to the 'after'. 




I apologize for the terrible lighting in our garage. We did all of the work at night and it's seriously lacking light other than a couple of fluorescent fixtures. Also, you can see my hubby hard at work in the photo above. I'm sure he's going to love *feel the sarcasm* that I had any part of him in a picture.. but that's what he gets for being on his phone when we were supposed to be working! 

And without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to my new love: our headboard. Voila!



BAM! If that isn't a statement, I don't know what is! Love it, love it! Excuse me while I go pet it for a minute... 




Ok, I'm back. Isn't it luuuurvely?! I'm dying over here. The best part is that I get to cuddle with it all night long :o) So there you have it, a statement piece for our master bedroom. You'll see that the pictures are labeled as 'progress' not 'after'. This is only because we still need wall art and I want to re-finish the end tables to match. But we can really call it done-for-now!

Well, I'm off to go love on it one more time. While I do that, you can ogle the total package one more time...
