New Headboard

For Christmas my hubby and I decided we definitely needed a new bed. (Our backs were aching when we woke up and the plyboards between the mattress weren't helping!) We have been married for 10 years and the bed was one of our first purchases as a married couple. Out with the queen and in with a king size mattress. With the bigger beautiful queen headboard was too small. For weeks I looked on Craigslist searching for a cheap and perfect headboard...and I finally found something that could work. BUT, it needed a little tweaking. The wood needed a little furniture polish (thanks Hubby!) and the wicker backing needed to be covered with a quilted batting and a little fabric. Then we added a few upholstery pins to jazz it up, a monogrammed "D" and the finished product is something I LOVE! It's a favorite thing...all for just $40.
