Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! As promised, here are some pictures of the headboard, snapped with the benefit of daylight – so the colors look true-to-life, instead of crazy.
Here’s a glimpse of one of the top corners of the headboard. Getting the corners right was the trickiest part, but I think this is one of the most important elements when it comes to the finished appearance of your headboard.
Close-up of the buttons, which are definitely my favorite part of the headboard. I showed you how to make covered buttons – worth the effort, right?
After seeing the red lamps on film, I knew I needed to find some other lamps stat. But when a trip to Home Goods left me empty-handed (the lamps I wanted were $99 each – um, not in this lifetime), I snagged these from a random pile of cast-offs in our guest room closet. The scale of the shade compared to the base is totally wacky, but it’s a lot easier on the eyes!
Did you get started on any projects over the holiday, or just spend time relaxing?
