I’ve been working on my craft room, and needed to add a bed to it---this is it. I’ve always loved daybeds, and when ikea put this clearance for $59.00 last year, I grabbed it.
here’s what it looked like before I painted and sanded it.
I really wanted some sort of awning over it, and came up with this rusty metal one. I added a fence edging, some ruffled tulle, and a string of white lights for fun.
I used 2 old table legs to hold the tin away from the wall. at the top, there is a long 1x2 board with hinges attached to the top of the tin. oh, and I added a couple coats of sealer to the top and underside of the tin panels—to keep the rust from flaking.
the angel wings found a new home on top.
there is a rod with shirred curtains, and a metal framed inspiration board hanging from them.
I’m not sure this is a “headboard”, but, funky junk has a party going on for "funky headboards" and I’m linking this up to it and to some of the parties below:)
and thanks so much for my june feature spots!!
I’ll be back next week and catch up on everyone’s blogs—thanks for looking!
