Remodeling a old bathroom... very OLD ;-). Was in the process of demo and Pulled the drawer front off. I am always looking for a way to re-use what I have and thought this would make a
cute wall hanging for jewelry, pretty scarves or dried flowers. First I applied a coat of new stain to deepen the base color. Whitewashed with some old white flat wall paint, and then distressed with my best friend "electric sander". Gave it some character and then stained again. Finished it off with 2 coats of paste wax. I also had some old knobs from another project, but they were a bright copper color. So gave them a really good sanding with very course sandpaper, applied the white paint sanded that a bit, dab of stain and then a spray of polyurethane to seal. Drilled holes and installed them into the board. I am really pleased how this turned out! I love when something beautiful comes out of the "destined for dumpster" pile ;-)
This project was inspired by my 2 year old son Braylon. Being a former University of Georgia football player from 2003-2007, I wanted my son to be able to experience Sanford Stadium first hand each and every day!
Simple.... I purchased a reed fence from the K-Mart garden department...rolled it out flat, then evenly rolled up each of the sides so that the total width would fit my queen size bed.
Then, tied the "rolls" on either side in the back where it wouldn't be seen to keep it from unintentionally unrolling, propped it up against the wall behind the bed, secured to the wall with a few VERY SMALL screw nails here and there and VOILA! INSTANT "BEACHY" headboard!
