An Easy DIY Project

May 28, 2014 by 18 Comments

Hello there lovelies!  How is your week going?  We always get excited this time of the year, summer vacation…that means grandkids are coming over to see us and spend a few days.  I just started a little make-over in the guest room, getting it ready for our visitors.

I’m sure you can guess what I’m doing here….hammer and measuring tape in hand I tackled this easy diy project over the weekend.


This is the before picture.  I was ready for a change and decided to recover the headboard.  The bedding stays, but I’m hoping to add some fun pillows.

This has been a very inexpensive makeover…I used painters drop cloth and embellished with furniture nails.

I’m really pleased how it turned out. Now I’m ready to shop for a few more accessories for the room and then I’m ready for the full reveal.  I think I’ll check out Target today.

Have a blessed week!

Thank you for visiting!
