DIY Idea: King Headboard Made From A Twin Bed!

It's my favorite part of the renovation--time to decorate!  Can't wait to show you the downstairs master bedroom.  It was a challenging space because it only has one teeny tiny window letting in light.  So we painted the wall white---Martha Stewart Living #8002 Glass of MilkThat brightened up the room and gave a great background for us to build on.

I collected the goods for the room from lots of places.  The king headboard started out as a twin headboard and footboard that I found at a flea market for next to nothing.  Thanks to a trick I learned from Jane Coslick, my designer at Coast Awhile Cottage, we had the legs cut off and the parts were mounted to the wall...

And voila!  A king headboard two-fer!  Gotta love it.

The yellow bedspread was a fabulous deal from Kohl's and the blue pinstripe duvet and pillow shams were from Ikea.  The framed prints and octopus pillow were steals on Joss and Main, one of my favorite flash sale sites. Those stunning red chevron pillows were a splurge from 
C. Wonder but even they were on clearance and at 75% off they were quite reasonable.
Just about everything else was a flea market find--except for the lampshades above and the mirror from Home Goods.
This large oil painting was salvaged from The Coral Cottage.

Can't wait to show you how it looks up put together!  I'll post it next time.
