Well folks, I got the overhead lights mounted to our headboard and it didn't take a year like I feared it would. Thanks to the hubs for getting it done on his time off! As you might remember, I started working on this thing around this time last year. And, I had a baby along the way....so there were other priorities you know. Anyway, not only do we have an awesome headboard, but now we each have our own light for reading....alright, I'm not fooling anyone...I really mean for surfing on our phones.
I'm also really happy with our new nightstands that we got on sale from Old Time Pottery. The distressed, white wood goes really well with the headboard. Yay! We can finally put this project to bed!
Ok, I apologize for the pun, I couldn't help myself.
On another note, I've been printing photos from my Instagram feed through this awesome app called Printicular and I've been clipping the photos to our headboard with clothespins. It gives it a real homey vibe and we have an ever-changing collection of family photos nearby. How sweet! There's nothing better than having family nearby, and the next best thing to having them in person is having them in photos. Ha. Or, depending on your family, it might be the other way around. ;)
Oh! The cute little 3x3 frame with the burlap mat is from Target and is part of their new Threshold line. Love! Be forewarned: don't go look unless you're prepared to spend some money. Or, maybe just lock your wallet in the car and go look just for inspiration.
