My new headboard on a budget... $11
We have a Cal King bed and it's so hard to find a headboard. I was at the local charity thrift store and they had this giant headboard in the middle of the store. I asked how much they wanted and she said $5.00!!! I didn't even know if it would fit, but brought it home. It's a really heavy Thomasville, but in pretty rough shape. I cleaned it up pretty thoroughly (lots of spider webs...uggg). 2 cans of spray paint in a soft green and even the cat approves.
