Headboard Reveal

So, I told you all that we got a new mattress, like, in August, maybe the end of July even! Then, I told you that Forrest has been working on our head board. Well, today I am telling you that it is finished and it is magnificent!! Thank you husband!! It is exactly what I wanted!

On Pinterest, I saw a headboard made out of an old door and I knew I had to have one too. Forrest went on a hunt and found this in his grandfather's shop:

...an antique door that was in his grandfather's house years ago!

Clearly, it is old and dirty, but this is exactly what I was looking for. (Well, Forrest did the actual looking--I just gave specifics)

After weeks and weeks of toil and labor--here is the finished product!
It is blue but he "antiqued" it, so it has some rough white spots on it.The hardware is still on it as well.

Now all I need to do is to find some great big white pillows and other accent pillows and the room will be ready!
