Since we sold our traditional-lovely-but-not-us bedroom suite, we have been without a headboard.   If we were the US government, we’d borrow the money from China and buy an iron bed or a dreamy peeling-paint mantel. 

In the interest of fiscal responsibility (may Congress take notes on how that’s done), I shopped our house instead.


These frames were either all gifts or cost .50 or less a piece.  Somewhere back in time I probably paid $3 for the whole bunch.

The large frame was part of the Creative Memories line (now discontinued) and holds a scrapbook page of one of my favorite pictures and quotes.



No sewing skilz required for this pillow.


The vintage buttons were rescued from my mother’s sewing supplies that are languishing in my basement.   At $3 a yard, the trim was a bit pricey, but I like bobbles, and everything else was free. 

There’s still lots to do in our master bedroom, but I’m pleased with the progress.

I’m off to cover this freshly made bed with laundry to fold.

So much for progress.

Be blessed today!

  6. Wow, you are so talented! It looks great. You are a wonderful example of good stewardship.


  7. Thanks for commenting on my bookcase! Your bedroom is lovely! I'm enjoying your blog too. Will be following you from Portugal!

  8. I love your style Ginger! It looks so simple and elegant. I never considered the empty frame look, but now I think I could do that in our TV room/spare bedroom/office/toyroom room. :)

    Nice job! Way to be fiscally responsible!
