Heads Up..

** Linking up with Transformation Thursday at the Shabby Chic Cottage.. Be sure and go have a look at all the great things others have posted..**

I've been wanting to try and make a simple version of a headboard for Tyler's bed.. I finally got around to it this weekend.. I still have one more thing I want to do to it in the next few weeks and then it'll be complete. I bought one 1x4 and used a piece of plyboard that I already had so this was a cheap DIY fix. The pictures are not great because I took them with my phone. I did most of it by myself but Jeff helped me some when I needed it. Thanks honey!

assembled and waiting to be sanded

  1. hmmm good places to have weddings...mellonwood (the stubb's place), McAlpin house in Magee, thats all I can come up with now.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. To answer your question about the heart, yes it is made out of springs. I didn't make but wish I knew how. I have a post about it under "Valentine's Dilemna". I have to say, I love the old tiller in your header picture. We have the same one in our front garden. One of my first posts was about that tiller. Now I'm off to check out your blog!

    It is so much fun to create something unique and different.
