Headboard to Organizer

We're starting week #2 of my March Madness series and welcome! I can't believe it's been a whole week already! How many dated headboards have you passed by without a second thought? I've redone several headboards because they are perfect for repurposing!

Upholstered Headboard

Hi all! I found this gorgeous headboard on a Facebook yard sale group a couple of months ago and had to go see it. A local upholstering company was selling it out of their warehouse. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was coming home with me, only it was  four days later. It was so big, there was no way it was going to fit into my SUV, so I had to end up picking it up with my hubby's truck...on my birthday! It was listed at $75, but the girl selling it took my offer of $60. What a steal! It's … [Read more...]
