Family + Headboards

Good Morning blogland friends!  How was your weekend?  Hope all is well and bright where you live.  Yesterday was the first lazy Sunday I’ve had in a long time.  There were puzzles to be made and games to be played.  This past Monday my Uncle arrived from Europe and on Friday, his daughter (my cousin), her husband, and son also came to visit with us.  It was wonderful to catch up with everyone and so sad to see my cousin and her family leave last night (wish they could have stayed a bit longer…).  My Uncle will also leaving to go back home in a few more days.

The total number of people in my home this weekend (including ourselves) was 8.  It was the first time that all of the bedrooms were occupied – including the library which had an air mattress.  It was very reminiscent on my life growing up with people always coming and going.  Anyway, while we were figuring out the sleeping arrangements, the lack of a headboard in our bedroom came across my mind (don’t ask me to explain how my mind works – I don’t know).  This has been on my list (item #3 here) for many moons.  I have been wanting a farmhouse bed frame but since we got our dresser, I’m not so sure anymore.  I’ve never been a fan of too many large dark wood pieces in a room as it can make it feel heavy.  So I’m thinking about making my own fabric headboard.  While this project would have to wait until the Spring (I’ve got too many other project going on now), I’m kind of excited about it.  Plus, it’s going to take me some time to find the right fabric.  So far, here are two that I like…

I’m thinking that this idea will cost less than the $1500 I was looking to spend on the farmhouse frame.   Let’s see where this takes me…
