#SPDL Wooden head board!

Once again, I've been Pinspired to link up with Katie and Stephanie for the Saw it, Pinned it, Did it link up!!! These girls and this link up ROCK! If you aren't already doing this, go nose around at the other bloggers that are and you will be motivated to find something on Pinterest and make it your own.


If you don't already follow me on Pinterest,  you can find me here!

For a while now, I've been in love with barn board. I love how old it looks and I especially swoon over the barn board headboards!
  I walk a very thin line between country and industrial style. I despise classic country home decor (you know the plaid curtains and wooden cows above the doorways etc) so I tend to stay more towards vintage, industrial but with some pottery barn flare.
Here are some of the headboards that I lurve via Pinterest!
 



  
Our version.....


I love the whole entire wall, and I fell in LOVE with it!!!! 
You need pre cut pieces of wood and then stain them
I distress a good amount of furniture and found that using aquas and oranges add a great color punch and still keep an earthy tone, so I randomly brushed some paint on the wood. 
 
To finish it up and to give it the industrial feel that I like, I added this really
cool shelf from plumbers pipe!  


He is calling this shelf "handlebars". I am calling it a shelf.

 
  And after seeing these on Christina's blog, I decided they would add a feminine touch! She also has a great post on how "not to" kill flowers. As killing flowers or any plant for the matter, is my specialty.


We also bought two of these lights, for each side of the bed.

 We will need these to be put in but once they are I will update you with a finished picture. I also have a plan for our night stands.

From one wanna be Martha Stewart to another! Happy Thursday!
