My sister and brother-in-law are building a house near Lake Michigan! It is scheduled to be ready soon so I have been busy making some furniture for her. Beds are top on the priority list because a place to sleep is a good thing :)
This past winter I made a headboard for one of my bedrooms to practice:
I like they way it turned out and here it is in the bedroom:
So, for the cottage we wanted platform beds high enough off the floor to put a suitcase under the bed!
So with a little inspiration from Ana White and Pottery Barn Mason Headboard I got to work. I made the same style platform for both beds and changed up the headboards just a bit! As for the cost - I spent way less on everything than the cost of one headboard at Pottery Barn :)
My sister bought bright quilts for the beds so we did a white wash in the open slatted bed and stained the other.
The third bedroom is going to have twin beds so we painted some old headboards and a bookcase a bright color to go with the navy and orange quilts!!
Thanks for stopping by!
