Fun Friday #5: Retro Style Headboard

My sister Yvette and I researched some options for a new headboard for her room. She didn't want to spend a lot of money, and she was open to any ideas that would be cute. We came across this idea from Jessica H. It's a "Mosaic Headboard." You can find it at Dollar Store Crafts. It's so easy and inexpensive. Anyone can do this and it's so darn cute!

Here is the outcome! It's amazing what 12" x 12" scrapbook papers, nails, and linoleum tiles can do!
One of the best features of this headboard is that you can change it if you want to change your color scheme!
The total project cost  less than $20. It was a little more than Jessica's, but the extra dollars was worth it to get these papers!
Try it, and have some fun!

Love it!!! I can't wait until I own a home and can do all kinds of fun things! Renting is nice when there are maint. problems, but for decorating purposes it's not as nice.
When we do hopefully looking into buying a home soon I will keep this in mind!!! Thanks!
