There is no other form of flattery for a blogger then when a reader gets inspired from what I post! After all, that’s why I started this blog. Inspiration is all around us. The hardest part is the initial push to get started on these ideas. Finding the time, tools and materials can be enough to deter people.
My Aunt Patsy and Uncle Steve live in a beautiful house in Texas with their lovely horses. They recently moved there from Florida where they still own a home. Decorating so much space is challenging but it is also a great opportunity to get creative with what you already have!
These shutter doors were in their attic in Orlando for years.
Alone, these shutter doors are boring and space eaters. But with a little creativity, inspiration and labor, they can be re-purposed into a beautiful headboard for a guest bedroom!
What I love about this headboard is that it adds a focal point to the room anchoring the bed. The natural wood is appropriate for a Texas, ranch style home and adds height and texture to the walls. You did a fantastic job Patsy! My parents will enjoy the room in person when they visit in March!
If you’re looking to add a little spunk to a bed with a headboard, try thinking “out of the box”.
This is the headboard in our current guest bedroom. It was an old piece of wood used for a gate.
This is what it looked like when I found it in a friend’s garage.
You can see how far a little bit of vision and elbow grease can take a piece!
For our master bedroom, you might remember my frustration with this headboard.
I love it now but putting it together made me want to yank out my hair!
If those aren’t inspiring enough, here a few more unique ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
Have a fantastic Friday!
