nesting {the headboard edition}

Isn't it funny how you appreciate things so much more when you don't have them?? Well the past few weeks I've been appreciating having our own home. Not because we're homeless or anything {don't fret yourself}, but because since moving to Tulsa, we had to leave our {sweet little} housy back in Lawton and move in with the in-laws until our house sold and we could buy a place of our own here.  Now we have everything we need and my in-laws have been so sweet about letting us live with them, but it's just not the same as having your own home {a place to ooze domestic creativity}!
I've been in a sort of nesting mode {and no, I'm not pregnant. Sorry mom!} lately! I'm coming up with all these crafty ideas to do in our {future} home and I get so excited about it!!! There will probably be many more of these posts to come, but I like to call this one the "headboard edition."  Matt and I already have an absolutely gorgeous bedroom set that his dad built us {and when I say gorgeous, I really do mean the craftsmanship doesn't get any better than this!}, but our guest bedroom is severely lacking in that area.  And since Matt gets his own man-cave which he gets to decorate with all his OSU/Dallas Cowboys/boy stuff, I get to decorate the guest bedroom with girly stuff! {For the record, he said he needed a "man-cave" because I took over the rest of the house. Oops! Sorry, honey! Hehe :)} My starting place with the guest bedroom is a headboard. I figured if I could find out what kind of headboard I want, it will determine the "feel" that I want to achieve in the rest of the room. Here are some of my favorites so far:










So those are the contenders.  I'm thinking I might be leaning more towards the door headboards simply because we have this beautiful old wooden door that we kept from our old house that would look really awesome antiqued!  I'm still not sure, though! I just absolutely love them all!!! What do you think??

But I love this headboard one... The one with the old shutters is my FAV! I might have to copy your idea a bit on that one! You seem so happy and sounds like married life is treating you really well! Im so happy for you!! :)

So great! I am making my own headboard right now! I had a board cut for me at Lowes and bought 4 picture frames that I painted and then putting a designed contact paper under them. It's hard to expain but it is going to be awesome! I will post pictures when I am finished so you can see. It will only cost me about $35 when I'm all done!

That sounds awesome Mind!! I want to see pictures when you're done! What color scheme are you using in the bedroom??

Haha and no Jenna, it doesn't sound creepy at all! I'm just glad people besides me actually like reading my random thoughts! Haha! And I LOVE the shutter idea, too! They have a store called Restore by Habitat for Humanity (there's one in downtown Salt Lake) where you might be able to find some cool shutters for that headboard. It's kind of hit and miss, but sometimes you can find awesome treasures there! Let me know if you end up doing it! I would love to see pictures!! :)

I like the old door headboard - I also like the shutter one. Not being very creative, I would never considered either of those for headboards!!

Oh my word!!! I love all those ideas!! I especially like the old doors and the very first picture. Such great ideas. My Mom has been wanting me to get a headboard, but we've never gotten around to looking for one, so I think I might just use one of these ideas :)
