Here we are again with the second in my series of SUPREMELY procrastinated posts.

Remember when I talked about dreaming of a Kreg Jig and how I managed to slap this Headboard together? 


Yeah… I know.   I barely remember it, either!



But I did.

And I really did finish it… honest.

After I framed the two bi-fold Shaker Style closet door out with some 1x4s, I added a little 1×2 as trim.


Mitering it at the corners with my hand-saw…


Don’t need no Miter-Saws here, baby!

{Umm… but I’d flippin’ LOVE one.  Ryobi, are you listenin?}



So then, I painted it black and added the top piece of trim {also a 1×4} and hung it on those crazy-beautiful stenciled walls.



Oh, just ignore the lumpy pillows and lack of duvet cover.

The headboard and stenciled stripes probably distracted you from that anyway, right?

Oh, please say they did!
