DIY Covered Headboard II

Welcome Back

At the end of day one we had a little too much fun shopping for the materials at Home Depot and Lowes.
Susie visits them so much they know her by name...haha
Surprised they have not given her an orange apron to wear.


We have become quite the experts at getting
 things loaded up...

You learn really fast how slow you have to drive
 with the door open. 
I felt so sorry for the poor people that had to
 drive behind us...pokey slow.
This is a video of day two...Susie had been up all night making the box and attaching it to the existing
headboard, so she was not up being on the blog screen...



That sister, what a great idea to use a drop cloth...very durable and looks like faux linen...cheap!


When I left Susie she had run out of the bronze nail heads...She gives advice on this over at her blog,
her link is @ the bottom of this post.


But its looking great...now I want to make
 on for my bed at the
 "Little House In The Big Woods"
Checkout more pictures of the DIY process, at
Join me tomorrow when I introduce you to my Fabulous Friday Four...see you then,





I linked up today with  At the Picket Fence   for their Inspiration Friday Linky Party...

Oh, I can't wait to see this finished. I want an upholstered headboard, too. Can't beat good old drop cloths.

I love using drop cloths, but never thought to use them this way. It looks amazing! Thanks for the inspiration!
