Headboard line-up....

Hi Everyone!  I wanted to show you some close ups of all those free headboards that 
my free stuff fairy Aunt gave me yesterday! 
 These are the full size headboards, with one that has a foot board.
 Love this one!  Look at those feet....
 ...and they have the original casters too.
 This is simple but I can work with it.
 This one is a bit rough and needs a bit of work, but nothing I can't deal with.
 Have I said how much I love this one with the casters and that center detail.
 A close up of it.
 I like this one too.  I can see this painted a creamy white color without the gold details. 
 Or maybe a pretty blue....too many choices.
 Here's the line-up of the twin headboards.
 I might not make a bench with this one.  It needs a lot of work but I could use it for parts and pieces.
 I have had two other headboards just like this one that I made into benches.
 These are the twins.  But I could turn one into the arms of a bench or I could make two benches.
 The lone foot board.....I think he'll be in storage for a bit...
 Diamonds anyone?...
 And the last two are the headboards and foot boards.  
They are both pretty rough but nothing a good cleaning and sanding won't fix.
I love the little heart detail on the foot board, but if I turn it into a bench then that is where it would be cut in sad....Too bad the headboard didn't have that heart in it.

So there you go.  All those headboards.  I have a lot of work to do. 

Anybody interested in a bench?  I think I have a wide selection for you to choose from.

Thanks so much to my free stuff fairy Aunt Barb!  I do appreciate your generosity so much!  

What do I start working on first?  Maybe I should finish the two projects that are currently on the shop floor and the two art projects on the table in the house or the Christmas projects I've started for the next craft fair or the couple of signs that are ready to be painted or....I'll stop there. 
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your free stuff fairy has sure been generous to you. Just look at all that potential lined up like an assembly line. No doubt every one of them will be a real treasure when you're finished.

  2. I had to leave a headboard behind today, it was only a buck. I feel like I let the redo world down! It would of made a fantastic chalkboard too.


  3. you're going to be a busy girl Holly!
    great beds, I see some signs in there.


  4. What a haul Holly! I agree with Gail - benches and signs are in your future :)

  5. I have been looking high and low for a headboard to make into a bench with no luck! GAH!!
