Antique Headboard

A lovely co-worker knew I was searching for a headboard for our guest bedroom and asked the other day if I had any luck. I told her about the lady on CL who sold a beauty I wanted the day I was going to get it :( and that I was sad. She said, "Don't be sad, I have an antique headboard and footboard you can have!" I was floored. She loves the same decor I do, so I knew she would know what I would love! Her and her sweet hubby brought it over while I was at work. And here it is! I am likely painting it white...Of course. It is darker oak than appears in the photos...

Isn't it pretty? I am actually hesitant to paint it, but I think I have to to make it go well in the room. What should I put abouve the headboard??? Mirror? Pictures? Hmmm, a little secret is: I haven't hung ONE picture up or mirror for that matter anywhere in my house. Why? Scared? What if I hate it and I have to fill the hole and well, you get the idea. How lame. Anyone else have this issue and any idea how I can just go for it?

Happy Sunday to you all...

Wow! Can't beat that! Looks like your guest room is coming together nicely. For hanging pictures, use the command strips - they are fabulous. Easy to put up with no levelling and they leave no marks on the wall when they are removed. I use them all the time! They are a little pricey up here but soooo cheap in the States.

Oh dear one that is one VERY cute bed...and Yes, I think she has to be dressed in white.

Be courageous...Invite a friend over {Dawn} and have her hold up the wall adornment for you to see...If you mess up, you can ALWAYS fill it. it will make you SMILE when your rooms are complete.

I have a cookie bake on the 6th and THEN I am free for about you?

Becky what lovely room !

I personally would put up a picture unless of course the window is facing the bed as you would get good light reflection into the room if you was to put a mirror their.

love the headboard
