Happy Thursday everyone! How has your week been going? Mine?? Well, it could be a LITTLE better, but overall, I would say I am very blessed. I am happy to be here with you today. I KNOW you will love my idea to Use a Large Shelf or Mantel in Place of a Headboard. It has been of the BEST projects I have done in a long time. AND I am sharing it with YOU today.
I have been searching and searching for a “mantel” or large shelf for about 2 years. I REALLY wanted to use it as a headboard.
I am part of a “garage sale” facebook group in my area. I browse through everyday looking for something I might be able to refinish, paint, or redesign. I came upon a woman who was selling 4 large shelves. I jumped at the chance and bought one as soon as I could.
Come to find out, my new queen size bed is 5 ft across. AND the shelf I bought was also the same length.
It’s the ideal size to hang at the head of our bed.
I allowed it to completely dry between each coat. I did three coats altogether.
OH! Did I mention that my new shelf was NOT wood??? Can you even tell??? There are lots of craftsmen that live here in Vegas. They design and make faux shelves, facades, baseboard, crown molding, etc… out of a type of foam for local hotels. When a hotel redesigns a room, the craftsmen and/or others come in to take down the old faux facades. That is exactly what this shelf is. NOT even wood but foam.
Once my shelf/mantel was hung, it was time to “play” with accessories. (My fave part)
Can I just say how much I love the idea to Use a Large Shelf or Mantel in Place of a Headboard???
It completes our bedroom-almost...
I still have one more idea to finish our room off. And then I can share the WHOLE bedroom makeover with you. Woot woot!
What do you think?? Will you Use a Large Shelf or Mantel in Place of a Headboard?
I hope you have been inspired as you visit today. It has been my pleasure to have you here. Come back again tomorrow for a special edition of:
Make it a terrific Thursday!!
