Old Door Turned Headboard!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen this door the hubs and I were working on turning into a headboard.

I am so thankful my husband knows how to cut crown.  My head was spinning while I was watching him...everything is upside down and backwards to me.  

And here it is......Didn't it turn out beautifully!

I wanted to make this piece look old and really bring out all the imperfections.  Dry brushing does just that, and it has been awhile since I have dry brushed, so it was fun to change things up a bit.

The color of my walls in my entry way have been so popular and I love them.....but I had never painted a piece of furniture that color until today and I am glad I did, it looks as good on furniture as it does on my wall.  The dark gray is Dansbury downs by Pratt and Lambert and then I dry brushed Sculpting Clay by Valspar over the top!

I left the old hardware on for added character!

I also had this cute little table in the garage that needed a little love.  The top glass was broken  

I took the old top off and created a new pink plank top.

I love how rich it makes this top!  I didn't love the blunt edges with the fancy legs below so I routed them for the added bit of elegance!  

 Both of these pieces are FOR SALE!!

The Headboard can fit a king, but can be made to a queen upon request.
The table is $125 and measures 24 inches x 27 inches
