Bed on the Wall

Maybe I'm a little delirious because it's waaaaay past my bedtime tonight, so that's as good of a title as I could come up with at this hour.  Since it's so late, I'll make this lil' post a quick one.  It's been a busy few days since my handsome hubby came home.  We've been busy trying to get things caught up around here before his deployment.  Basically, that's code for "we have way too many projects going on at once, the garage/shop walls are closing in on us, and we have GOT to get some c-rap completed".  The trees need trimmed, the vehicles need some maintenance, the house needs cleaning, and the list goes on....

So, in an effort to help clear the garage a little bit, I put together a little shelf today. 

I had a french style headboard a little while back that I had picked up off the side of the road. A great friend of mine had this little beauty.  It just so happens that said friend loves french style items, and this junker loves rustic items.  So, what to do?  Trade headboards, of course.  Ahh, isn't she a rustic beauty:

I had a couple of iron shelf brackets that I had picked up at a garage sale a while back.  So, I then pilfered through the wood pile in the garage to find my "shelf".

I settled on a piece of brown crackled shelf and cut it to size using the circular saw.  I used dark walnut to stain the bottom of the shelf and to touch up the sides and edges where the wood was fresh due to my cuts.  I wasn't loving it though.  The brown just wasn't meshing, so I dry brushed some white paint over the brown crackle paint.  Much better!

I put it all together, cleaned it up, and waxed it all using a clear wax.  The chippy paint on this piece makes my heart sing.

I love, love, love this one.  I must part with it though.  As the rule in the house goes: if I don't have a home for it; it must go.  So, this little baby is now for sale. 

Here's my two favorite guys hanging out while we took a break!  These two have my heart.

Great-looking helpers! Thanks for sharing this idea. I have been staring at three mismatched headboards I picked up trying to decide what to do. this really helps. Wonderful shelf!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

I have made a coat rack using a headboard, but making a shelf might be even better...thanks for sharing it at my party.


Beth said...

Shut the door! I can't believe I hadn't thought of, or seen this idea before! (and I just made a shelf much like this using a picket fence):P ~LOVE it!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Such a nice idea and the brackets are to die for!

Rockin' Redesigns said...

I love this, I have a very similar headboard in the garage. I had lots of ideas, but this is my favorite!
