Beach Barn Before and After- Headboards

I did not manage to get a wednesday+woodworks post completed yesterday but I hope to make up for it with today’s before and after project.  The Long Bay Beach Barn is filled with  locally sourced, and often refinished, furnishings.  I purchased this pair of headboards at the old Salvation-Army last year for $40.  I started by painting them ivory and adding a light distress.  I then had mirror cut for the inset areas which I antiqued and set in place.  I love the way they turned out and how versatile they are; the pretty pair can be set up as a single daybed, as a matching pair of single beds, or the two singles joined together for one big shabby chic king sized headboard!

    My wife Sandra and daughter Kathryn love the headboard restoration! We would love to see more when we come to visit in July…
