DIY Project. Are there words more beautiful in the English language? 😀
Oh, okay. I’m sure there are plenty. But oh, how I love a DIY project!!! I love the sound of my saw, the smell of freshly cut wood, the excitement of seeing a coat of paint being applied, the challenge of figuring out how to make something, and yes, even the do-overs when they’re necessary.
My favorite DIY project of the year is a result of a do-over. It’s my very own upholstered headboard with a nailhead trim.
The first attempt was sad. Just plain pathetic. So I ripped everything down to bare bones, and started over. The second result was just what I had imagined in my mind!!!
|Just look at those gorgeous nailheads, all perfectly lined up!!!
Oh, trust me, my first attempt was a disaster. But once I got the
hang of using the tool correctly, it was a breeze!!
|And the fabric was a remnant at a local fabric store,
so I got it for quite a bargain! I love the texture.
|It fits perfectly between the two new closets that I built. So cozy!!|
And all for under $125!! You can see the process I used to make this headboard right here.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
