Hi Friends! I had been trying to figure out a cute headboard for our daughter June, and then it hit me: why not make a DIY shiplap farmhouse headboard for her bed?
It’s been busy over here at the Hathaway household. I seem to have a never ending list of projects to do, but one simple update I wanted to do was update her fabric headboard & bed.
Our puppy scratched up her old upholstered headboard, so I thought it was time for a more durable change.
I told my husband I wanted to paint her bed white to make her bedding pop, and I wanted a shiplap looking headboard, and boy did he deliver.
Now one thing about me is that I LOVE imperfection in furniture. I don’t mind if things don’t fit like a glove, and I want it to look rustic and well worn. I am the type of girl who want a tin roof so I can hear the rain. So even though this piece has gaps & nooks, it’s perfect to me. It’s rustic & reclaimed and that’s what I like to see in my home decor.
Another thing that is different about my style is all the white in my house. People think I’m crazy to have everything white with kids. I’ve actually found it’s easier to keep everything clean with white. Kids scribbled on the wall? No problem, Magic Eraser to the rescue!
And you have to admit, it make everything pop!
I mentioned in my last post that my husband and I are building something special to replace this pallet dresser. I’m super excited about the piece we will change it out with, but the current dresser is kinda a sentimental build for us, and I do love the way it looks in this space.
To dress up June’s bed I bought this adorable quilt from Little Unicorn. It really ties in the pops or orange & pink in the room.
That’s all for now.
