In the mean time, my blog partner sent me a photo of a headboard as inspiration for us to make for a future project. She has a realtive that wanted to see if we could put it together. It was found on Pinterest & we all loved the idea. This headboard was upcycled from shutters.
One of our Shop Tarts sent a recipe for homemade chalk paint that we are going to try on our shutter headboard. We will all find out together if this recipe is "Right ON" or"Write It Off"
With all this headboard talk, we decided to do a series on how to recreate this headboards for yourself. We have also planned to do a series on local flea markets, so that is where we will begin the hunt for the shutters.
