More furniture projects!!

The other day I was checking out a favorite blog/store site of's for a local thrift/junk shop.'s pretty neat and awesome deals! Anyway I was looking through it and in one of the pictures of a twin bed frame I noticed it was propped against something that had a neat architectural look. So I asked Miss Gina (the store owner) if it was what I was hoping it was....a king headboard! To my surprise it was a king headboard....and frame...for $65.00. Needless to say I rushed over there that morning to check it out. When I got there I didn't see it....but then she showed me where it was...outside. I really liked the detail of the reminded me of old cathedral windows....but the frame seemed small to me. So I wasn't sure what I should do. I went home to think it over.....called the shop and asked for the measurements of the frame...and it matched the one I have....sooooo I bought it!! I am super excited about re-doing this piece. I have been wanting to change out my bed for some time now....and I love that I am able to for such a good price! I am hoping to get some Annie Sloan chalk paint and use it for the first time on this headboard. I want to give it a distressed white look...any suggestions??


  1. What an interesting headboard! It looks so regal.

  2. Rachael:

    Thanks for visiting my blog. What a small world that you also lived in Chester County, PA. And guess what, we are thinking about moving to GA!

    I have never used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint, however, I have heard great things about it.

    I am now a follower.

  3. Thanks so much for the shout out! :)

  4. Sure thing Gina, I love your shop and tell everyone about! :)

  5. What a great looking headboard. I would just use the Old White chalk paint and then sand some off to distress it and wax it. That should be all you have to do.

  6. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment Kim, I love your blog! :) That is the color I was actually thinking I just need to save a penny or two to get all the Annie Sloan products!
