Picket Fence Headboard

I have big, big plans for our master bedroom! I'm not giving it a complete overhaul - I'll be keeping the wall color the same, but I'll be adding some finishing touches that will make it look like a brand new space. However, I've still got my kitchen to finish, so the bedroom is not on the top of my list right now.

A couple weekends ago I did rearrange our room. Our bed used to be positioned under the window so a headboard wasn't an absolute necessity. But I moved the bed to a big blank wall. Like I said, I have plans for the bedroom and that includes building a headboard. So as a temporary solution I used a small section of picket fence that I found at an estate sale for a pretty headboard.


I know the scale of the fence is a little off compared to the size of the bed, but I still think it helps fill the blank wall with a little cuteness. :)


I hung some embroidery hoop art for an added touch!








It works for now, but I can't wait to show you what I really have planned for the room!!! Stay tuned!!

  19. This is very country and pretty! A few years ago I did a headboard out of a picket gate, and just loved it. Then we moved to a new home, and I ended up actually using that gate out in the garden!
