I love to sway away from the norm for most things home. I just find it incredibly inspiring to find a nothing and make it into a something.
So you've got to know the headboards I use in my own home must be rather unique, right? :) The following pictures are found objects I've used to make headboards for my own home. It's a pretty neat feeling knowing I can knock off my own kind of furniture with a few good finds and a little creativity.
How to do it on a budget:
Just look for one big thing or a collection of small elements that will work with the size bed you have. Mount them, snoop around the thrift stores for pillow cases and quilts, decorate, and enjoy your new look for very little cost.
What do you think? Crazy or cool? Do you have an unusual headboard?

Painting a bathtub is easier than you think. I had painted the inside of my old claw foot tub a couple years ago using tub and sink paint. That stuff is smelly! It's held up great,
though. Recently, I painted the outside with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. I also painted a fleur de lis and stripe to give it a bit more character. U used Annie Sloan's Paris Grey paint. You can see the full project on my blog.
