Winter in the northeast can become rather, long! You spend a lot of time looking at the same four walls. You tend to notice things. Things you liked the day before, need to be changed! The change I am referring to required me to find my stable gun. It was in the toolbox my father gave me a few years ago. This is what needed to be altered! It is my daughter's headboard. We have been looking for a new one for awhile now. It is a full sized bed and there is not much of a selection for full sized headboards. The fence headboard was nice, but it needed to go! Below, is the new drop cloth covered headboard.
A few months ago drop cloths were very popular in the land of blogs. This week while I was blog hopping I noticed bloggers were still using them to make curtains, tablecloths and slipcovers. I bought one at Lowes a few weeks ago. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I had to have one! Sunday morning I draped the cloth over the headboard and I liked the way it looked. My daughter was not that enthusiastic. She is not big on change! However, I like change! I hope she won't mind if I buy a few new pillows, I am not too fond of the turquoise colored flower pillow. I want the room to have a softer look.

A drop cloth and batting, not a big investment. The total cost was about $13.00. I like change especially when it is cheap, I mean inexpensive!

Thanks for visiting!

That was a quick change! I really like the projects I'm seeing using drop cloths. Very nice.

Quick and easy not to mention inexpensive! Looks nice! It's so true about winter in the northern region! Yikes! We just see way too much of the inside of our homes! It's warm-ish here today but very, very gloomy! I was hoping for bright sunshine, sigh!
