I have been home for several weeks without being called for work. I came up with the idea of making something to show for all of this time being at home! I have wanted a headboard for our bed, or ANYTHING to jazz up the wall that our bed is against. We just don't want to spend our money on furniture right now, so I decided to make one! I drew up the plans in Microsoft Paint (very high-tech, I assure you), and then made a mental shopping list. I even figured out which wood to buy when I went to Home Depot! I didn't want to seem like an ignorant idiot in THAT store! It was a week-long project from start to finish. I designed it last Saturday, and this morning we put it behind our bed. Pretty nifty, eh? I am proud of it, and it still tickles me to walk into our bedroom and see it. I have a handy husband who is very patient and helpful. Waiting for the stain to dry was the most time-consuming thing I have experienced all week! I think the end result is amazing, if I do say so myself. I think I will have a Neiman Marcus cookie in celebration!
