In April I painted a roadkill headboard for my daughter. I doubt you remember. It looked like this:
I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles - to match the dresser I painted for her for Christmas.
It was lovely - and waiting for a final buffing - when through an unfortunate series of events
Then I fixed it and put it away until the next time I could drive to Oklahoma City and deliver it.
In case you happened to miss me during my blogging hiatus and wondered what I was doing.....I was on a sojourn to visit my kids, my family, and a few old friends. And yes, I brought the headboard and installed it.
It was worth the wait. Looks even better than we thought it would.
It looks great against the Latin American textiles and with the aging Anthropology quilt that she bought in High School.
It looks pretty good in the mirror too!
This necklace I bought at the Soulful Sparrow looks good in this room!
All this color makes you wish this rental didn't have those dingy Navajo white walls!
I had to add some inches to make it tall enough for all the curves to show, but I won't go in to that. I will say that it is somehow much more complicated to do this than you might imagine and I just don't want to admit how thick my skull is sometimes. Besides that - it is boring.
I'm glad she has the headboard now and I'm glad it is no longer in my basement. It's a win-win situation!
Make something wonderful today!
