Anyway enough rambling on about the weather. I found this old headboard at a flea market last fall for a few bucks. I think everyone was wondering what I was going to do with an old headboard. I guess I was wondering too...but I just knew it could be re-purposed somehow. I started by having my husband cut the legs off of it...I knew that whatever I was going to create those didn't need to be on there. Did they get thrown away you ask? Of course not they are still in my little stash of treasures to be used in another project of mine somewhere in the near future. :) Any how, after the legs were cut off I painted it using my own homemade chalk paint for the first time! I loved how it turned out by the way...the paint was definitely a different consistency but I loved painting with it and probably will do more projects with it in the future.
After painting it one color I was so happy with how the color combination of aqua and red turned out on a different project that I did on this blog that I decided to go with the same theme. I antiqued and distressed it in red and then stenciled the word welcome. As a finishing touch to make this headboard useful in the home I added four hooks, that also came from the flea market, to the bottom. I would say that this most likely won't be used as a headboard anymore. Now I just have to clear some walls in my entry way to hang it. Have a great day!!! ~Jessica
