New Headboard And Footboard

Hey friends! I'm here, and aching to get back to blogging!

 I was going through some personal stuff the whole month of September, but I think I'm getting back on track and ready to do this thing! So let's do this!

Remember me mentioning a while back that I picked up a headboard and footboard on craigslist for $65? It was originally listed for $100, but I got it for $65...score!

Here's what it looked like before, these were the pictures on craigslist-It was a light pine color:

After some serious sanding and a few coats of a custom creamy white I got mixed to match Rustoleum's Heirloom White, it's finished!

Removed the pillows so you guys could see the details of the headboard


Our bed looks super low because I decided to use my old metal bedframe...it's a really good frame, and I didn't want to use the wood slots and support of the side rails. It took me over a month to finish this project....oops! Like I said, personal stuff. But the point is, it got finished! WOOHOO!

Missed you all, so excited that it's October....I think this is my favorite month of the year! YEAH! 


  1. I think it looks absolutely fabulous. I would have never thought about doing that to the mission style bed. Great job!!!!

  2. Great deal! And it turned out beautiful! I’m a sucker for white furniture.
