Guest Bedroom Headboard

Back in the spring, I was bummed that the full/queen headboard I had fixed up for the guest bedroom was an eyesore because it was truly a queen size after-all.  I was at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and ran across another full size headboard at Goodwill for only $15.  It is about 4″ less wide than the old headboard, so it will actually line up with and attach to the bed frame.  I thought it would work really well in the guest room.  That is, once it was no longer fire-engine red.  Bradley had to go back with me later, because of course it wouldn’t fit in my car:)

I used the primer I had used on the kitchen cabinets.  Then I painted the headboard Canyon Echo by Glidden.  It is a very pale grey.  I am still working towards this color palette:

I also found a small round side table at Goodwill for $5.  It was a little banged up, but I glued and puttied and painted it right up.  I was able to sell the old headboard and the old side table/ file stand to get them out of the way.  I couldn’t be more pleased with the new furniture.  The scale of both the headboard and side table just work so much better in the room.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
