I along with 5 other DIY bloggers recently took a trip down South to the World's Longest Yard Sale. The tour ran through 6 states, starting in Michigan all the way to Alabama!
The mission? Collecting for a single mom and her two kiddos moving into a lovely new Habitat home. GMC, the sponsor of the event, handed us a budget of $250 each and sent us on our way.
You know I'm a junker, right?! But I also understand not everyone else is, so the choices I made reflected what I loved yet in a more upscale manner. I decorated the master bedroom and here's what I came up with!

Have you ever helped out another in need with the talents you have? I'd love to hear about it!
By recycling wood from the Habitat ReStore, painting it and then roughing it up a little I was able to create a great shabby chic headboard for our master bedroom. I added copper nails for some character and mounted it right to the wall.
I recently created matching wood + nailhead headboards for my sons' room. One is a twin bed-size and the other is a mini version for a toddler bed. I did this on a budget - it cost about
$60 total for both headboards. I designed a template and then cut the wood with a jigsaw. I used Minwax stain and Polycrylic, and added decorative nailhead trim. Check out the link for a full tutorial: http://www.diyonthecheap.blogspot.com/2013/0...
