And- is anyone else reeling from the season finale of Revenge? OMG!!! Declan dead? What was he doing in that building anyway? Nolan framed? Padima alive!? Aiden maybe dead? Emily finally tells Jack the truth! (And does he feel dumb for not realizing it earlier or what) I'm dying for next season already.
Anyway- I also spent some time finishing up the upholstered headboard for our bedroom!
I started this project a few weeks ago and despite my promise to myself to finish it quickly it never the less took longer than expected. It started smoothly enough- bought fabric, nail heads, foam, and batting. Wrapped a giant piece of plywood, stapled it all together then proceeded to hammer down the nail heads.
Then screwed some wooded legs on and thought I was done.
But the shiny brass nail heads were bothering me. They were too shiny and fake looking. So I ordered some Rub N Buff online and fixed that problem in no time.
The change is subtle but I think overall it makes a huge difference. Now I was finished~
What do you think? I like it better than our old headboard. I used 2" foam so it's nice and soft to lean against as opposed to our old one which was metal. And I like how the headboard has a traditional feel which plays off the ultra modern wall covering panels. I think it balances it out nicely.
Oh ya, see that dresser in the background? It's a new much needed find! More on it later. :)
