Rebecca and Dave came to us on a quest for a new upholstered headboard for their already existing bed. There was a specific look and style in mind. Mostly Grey and Yellow and then of course all kinds of pillows and a duvet cover to go with it.
Boy things sure went in a whole other direction. We tried picking through all kinds of different fabrics, some were great, some not so much and none were ‘IT’. In the middle of all this, Dave showed us a picture of a wooden headboard made from reclaimed wood that they liked as well. hmmmmm.
So we tried to design a wood headboard that also had a fabric element. But that wasn’t cuttin’ it either. Then we remembered that Rebecca mentioned she really liked one of our own bed designs that incorporated a pair of antlers on the headboard. (Coming soon to our new line of beds…soon……..I promise) and that she had a pair of antlers at home.
AHA. And so became the all reclaimed wood headboard design……………with the antlers of course.
So off we went to Urban Tree Salvage here in Toronto. Turns out they had this really nice Red Pine barn board that came from the old Darlington Mushroom Farm in Bowmanville, Ontario. PERFECT!!!!
First the wood needed to be brush down to remove all the loose debris, then it was top coated to seal it.
Packed it up and took it on over to Rebecca and Dave’s for install. They already had a fully upholstered bed so we needed to switch out the existing headboard with the new one.
SOOOO Much nicer than what we originally were trying to come up with. really, really happy with it.
***Next week we will show you the SUPER friggin sexy sofa we also did for Rebecca and Dave. You excited??? I am
