My First Craigslist Find

I was browsing Craigslist a few hours ago just for fun when I stumbled upon this: 

Ooh!!!! I love me some Moroccan tile influences.  And can you believe it is a solid wood, KING size headboard - for $80?!?!  There goes my no buying things for the new house rule - oops!

So after bugging my husband to make the 20-minute trip to get it and a few emails, we were on our way.

Isn't she a beauty?

So here she sits in our bedroom, wedged between my nightstand and lamp.  (please forgive the awful lighting)

She'll sit here until we move and I can get her into the garage for a makeover.  Not sure if I'll go with black to match our nightstands or white to give a nice contrast to the charcoal walls.  Either way, I'm thinking a paint with a metallic finish like Martha Stewart's Precious Metals line.  What do you think?

I can't wait til December :)

  1. I think that one was so worth the 20 minute drive. I think it would look good with a more lacquered high gloss finish.

  2. I love it! I think it would be perfect with a metallic finish! Don't you just love Craig's list!


  3. hm, I like it. to go with an even more moroccan feel, why not try a color paired with a metallic opaque top coat? it always depends on the rest of your colors of course.

    so worth the drive to get it!

  4. You scored, great find! I love Craigslist! =)
