Headboard Heaven

I've been envisioning a rustic headboard for our bedroom since we moved in 3 years ago. Thank goodness someone has beaten me to it and shown me just how easy and spectacular this can look.

After

This before and after DIY is fantastic. I love the feature wall colour, the linen, and of course, the handmade headboard recycled from her father-in-law's barnyard doors. 

Check out these pillows would you - she made them from her husbands old business shirts. 

We live amongst such creative and talented people.
