My sister and I took a trip to Ikea this weekend. I wasn't planning on buying anything, but I found this awesome door in the reject section.
There were 2 of them and they each had a sticker saying they were $65 each, so I didn't think twice about it. Buuuut, my lovely sister decided to ask about them and it turns out they were really only $7 each. Now that's my kind of price!
We each bought one and I knew right away mine would turn into a headboard. I didn't want to paint it with a billion bottles of craft paint to match my coral and window frame, so I ended up going to Home Depot and getting a color match in a sample size. It's only $3 for a sample, which is probably less than I would have spent on a billion bottles of craft paint AND I have some left over!
Of course I had to give it a coat of stain to match the rest of the goodies in my room. For the crevices, I wrapped my piece of sheet (haha, I just wrote 'piece of shit'! I'm glad I realized it right away so I could change it!) around the end of a flat head screwdriver and dipped it in the stain and ran it through all the nooks and crannies. A Qtip also helps distribute the stain.
You can tell that the 'S' is a perfect match to the headboard. Good job Home Depot!
Now, since I haven't moved yet, I'll give you a little sneak peak of what it will look like. I got the crisp white duvet from Target on sale for $15 for a king!
And the pillow was another Target score. I had been eyeballing it for a while last winter, but wasn't willing to spend $24. I kept checking back and it was finally on clearance for $6. Much better!
