As we are still in the month of February, which started with An Affair to Remember it seems only natural to use this month to kick off a new regular series of “Things I’m Loving”. Right now, one of the things I am loving is our new headboard.
If you haven’t been following long you will remember at the beginning of the month, the Fashion Mister and I went over to Daylesford for a lovely day out. I took lots of pictures of hearts in the local shops, we had lunch and ended up doing a little shopping. The shopping was actually the Fashion Misters’ fault. He actually did a pretty good job of it!
If you have been following for a long time now, you will recall that last year I redecorated the master bedroom. Everything had been completed fairly quickly except the headboard, which I intended to make. It was going to be a padded headboard. However, time and motivation got away from me and the Fashion Mister and I knew we didn’t want a “standard” old headboard.
Here’s what the Fashion Mister found…
While having a look around one of my favourite little shops, I was taking photos of hearts and over in the corner I could see the Fashion Mister looking at some iron wall hangings. The first one he looked at was similar to a garden gate and was pretty but just didn’t have the right vibe. Then he found two of these! Instantly we both fell in love with the organic feeling of both the weathered iron and the tree shape.
It seemed perfect as there were two and it got even better when we saw they were on sale for $40 each!
So, $80 and a few nails later we have a new headboard that we think is perfect in our master bedroom. In the couple of weeks that they have been up, absolutely everyone who has come to the house has commented on them and how much they like it.
At last, nearly a year later, we have put the finishing touch on the redecoration.
I would love to hear what you think? Did we get it right? Can you understand why one of the things I’m loving is our new headboard?
