A sneak peak at my Saturday project, {DIY Wood Headboard}

It's not often I'll spend a whole Saturday doing one long project because I try to spend my weekends paying attention to the little man in my life. 
But today, today was dedicated to a project I was determined to start and complete in one day.

Since I am redoing our master bedroom, I only want to sneak peak each project until I can voila the whole shabang!  So far you've seen one nightstand make over {Chuckerella}, you've seen the painted curtains and now you can see my DIYed wood headboard!
You can also spy a little sneak peak of my second nightstand make over...
which I am in love with how it turned out!

Also introducing in the picture is our brand new paint color on our walls!

To me... it's the perfect grey, no underlying hues of blue or green.  I searched long and hard for a {true} grey that wouldn't change colors on me depending on the lighting. 

Just to help you appreciate the small changes I've made so far... this was our room literally just a few short weeks ago.  {Wall color was this sage shade of green, little hard to tell in the picture}
This is one of the many "before" pictures

{Ohhh... the sadness...ohhh the horror}

And another quick sneak peak of some changes and the new headboard


I still have a long way until our bedroom will be completed
Still left on the to do list:
- make a new desk
- organize an "office area" in the bedroom
- find new curtains for our biggest window in the room
- purchase new TV {our chunky hunky TV needs to go}
- change up the lighting if possible
 - complete an art piece for the wall
- new bed linens
- make lots of fun new throw pillows

I will post a tutorial for the headboard soon... for now, I'm just gonna do my {happy dance}.

Can you believe I managed to do it all in one day...

What were your weekend projects this weekend?

  8. This is SO gorgeous, you did an awesome job! I'm in the process of doing a headboard as well (well, after the frame is done so my mattress is off the floor) I'd LOVE to know where you got your duvet/comforter/quilt!
