A headboard in the dining room, with a change

Thank you to all of you that gave me so many great ideas.  There were a few that left some awesome opinions but didn’t provide any way for me to contact them to say thanks, so thanks.

I would love to add drapes, but it’s a really small dining room and I am also counting on the wall to hold the headboard up, since I have no way to attach it to the bench.

Anyway, I painted it white, no surprise there eh? lol  And you know I love my green accents, so I added those back in to the room. I brought up my wool rug from storage since it is now fall. I love this rug, but wool rugs shed so much, that I have to vacuum all the time and that is definitely not how I like to spend my free time. Ha ha.  I bet you don’t either.

With it painted white, I was able to move it to the right a little more and the legs are not so obvious and it’s closer to centered on the window. It will still drive me bonkers, but it is what it is.

I like it best at nighttime.

I am still slugging away at my daughters room, but I'm almost done. I have had a couple of really tough months this summer and haven't gotten to many projects around the house. My mum was sick and in hospital for a long time, while she was there she had a stroke. She is doing much better and has been transferred to a rehab facility.  Now my dad is not well and it’s frustrating to get him the help he needs. I've also been extremely busy at work, working lots of overtime.  Hopefully things will be back to normal soon, whatever normal is.

    On the other hand, I think the headboard is magnificent and really completes this space. Love the touches of green with the pristine white.

  13. So sorry your parents are having a hard time. They are lucky to have you, Super Woman, as their daughter to help them out. On a lighter note I love the paint color change of the head board and the green accents. It looks so pretty with the sunlight shinning through the center carving.
