I was in Primary and our teacher asked us to draw a picture of what we were most thankful for. While other kids were drawing pictures of their families, their pets, their houses, or their cars…I drew a picture of my bed.
Yes. My bed.
Luckily, my parents aren’t easily offended and they thought my picture was hilarious. I actually think they saved it, but I don’t know where it’s at.
***Correction: My parents did not save it because it was on a chalkboard, my dad was totally worried, and I wasn’t in my second grade class like I previously thought. Sometimes I get my “time and space” mixed up. Whatev!
I had never had a bed that sported a headboard until I’d been living on my own for 4 years and finally bought my own bed. Student housing normally came furnished so there was never any need for me to buy one until I decided I had some minimal taste and style.
Stylish, right? hah. It was forty bucks! Anyway, I painted it black and it became my new favorite bed until I sold it and moved to Missouri.
I also really like our bed. but I also really like different headboards–like ones made of fabrics, or doors, or window frames? Okay, I show you!
Here are some simple ideas for DIY headboards:

I’ll take the cheap one thank you.
***Update on the house: everything is knocked down/ripped up/taken out! We have just a little more clean up to do and probably a thousand nails to hammer in. We will be ordering windows soon and My Honeypie will be starting the electrical and plumbing shortly. Yay! Go house! I have do have pictures, but haven’t been anywhere I can upload them yet. So sorry!
