I picked up this free standing king size headboard a while back it has two loop hooks on the back so you can hang it on the wall. Unfortunately I have lost the before picture
By looking at it from a distance you can not tell where it had been damaged, it took two of us to stretch the wood and to seal with wood glue and a vice. As much as we struggled to pull it together this was the best we could do. I was surprised that it held together so well as it was thick wood.
I painted it in "Original" Annie Sloan it literally took minutes. When you see these images it looks rather patchy and uneven but in real life its perfectly covered.
Yes..... £30 what a bargain! this is one of the reasons why I just could not let it go, its funny how we managed to drive from Leeds Home Sense to Manchester with this in the car but we couldn't fit a ladder in yesterday.
I decided to leave the edges as they were as it had been distressed to perfection. Can I just say painting Rattan is a pain in the
arse it goes everywhere, I guess this prepares me for the Christmas tree experiment.
I am yet to fill in the edge of the crack and a good sand but once I have a new project I am at it straight away with the paintbrush. I am hoping to sell this headboard as unfortunately I have a double bed and in total love with my recent vintage headboard. Do you think its worth selling? let me know your thoughts.
It is a very rare find and I know people have issues with finding a French style headboard these days especially if they own a divan bed like myself. Tomorrow we are taking a trip to Preston I wonder what I will come back with. We have decided to opt for the white kitchen I have taken a few ideas from a friend Tracy over at Pixie blogger. As soon as I saw her white kitchen I had instantly fell in love with the idea of having a white kitchen with bright coloured plates, jugs ect which I already have. Thanks Tracy for the inspiration. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
