The headboard in our room went like this.
I had ventured into Habitat Restore one afternoon (like many of my afternoons). I walked downstairs & saw this great looking window. It did have a crack going through one of the panes, but I loved it anyway. SO I grabbed it right up for $5.
When I got home my husband just looked at me & shook his head. Asked me then what I thought I was going to do with that thing!! I said I am making it into a headboard. He snickered under his breath but I heard him....
I did my thing with it (took the broken glass out, painted it, etc) , attached it to some posts we had and there I had myself a $5.00 headboard!
This was when we originally set it up in the room.
I knew I wanted to add to the area behind our pillows, but I just wasn't sure what I wanted to do yet. I thought about faux tin tiles, but when I brought one home, I just didn't like the look.
I have seen many projects on pinterest and some that bloggers had done that I really liked & wanted to do. When I saw the rustic bench that Holly at Down to Earth Style did I knew this was it!
Rustic Back Bench
It just fit into the style of the headboard!
A $5.00 headboard since all of the boards we had, the paint I had on hand as well.
