Drum Roll, Please...

As stated a while in 2 months ago...I started to build a new head board for my bedroom. I found the plans I wanted on Ana White's website. I bought the wood and, with the help of my dad and brother, started to frame it out.

Then my brother went back out on the road as a pipe welder and it kind of fell to a stand-still.

Then he came back on a break a few weeks later and put all of the intricate pieces together and finished building it.

And then it sat a few weeks longer until I had time to start painting ALL those pieces and Oh So Many Corners!!!!

I finally finished the third coat of paint today...2 months after we started this project!

I am in {L.O.V.E} with it!

I took longer than I would have liked but the whole project cost around $55.00.

I spent roughly:

$35 on wood

$2 on Liquid Nails

$8 on screws and nails

$10 on black paint

Yes, I need new bedding. Yes, I need some curtains on the patio door. Yes, I need a little something on the wall above the bed.

But for now...I am just going to sit and stare!!

The DIY Show Off
