Not your Grandma's Headboard

It is Friday and my chores are done, (but even if they aren't - heck, it's still Friday) what kind of awesomeness can i be responsible for today?

My bed was bare and in need of some pizazz, so I pulled my resources together and this is what I came up with!

Recreate this look: Bedding, Nightstand & Lamp-Target | Throw Pillows-Ross Gold Geode- Sears | Decorative Head Plate-Earthbound Trading Co.

I can't speak for everyone, but as for me, I find a lot of satisfaction making something with my own hands - whether it's building something from scratch or bringing something back to life. I think it's woven into the fabric of who we are as humans- created to create, rebuild and restore. We are all industrious beings, and created with purpose. So I encourage you to nourish that industrious bit inside your core and create beauty today and everyday!

This project requires absolutely no creativity and a very small budget! Typically a headboard/footboard can run you $500-$5,000, but with just a few items, you can have a beautiful eye-catching headboard for $100 or less. This is a project for literally ANYONE!
