Stuff I Made: Plantation Shutter Headboard.

The Habitat for Humanity home store yielded another great cheap-o find yesterday--these four wooden plantation shutters for $25. $25 TOTAL, y'all. If you've read my blog recently, you know I've been hunting for an old door to use as a headboard, but I never could find the perfect one and I knew it would be much easier to load four shutters into my car than to try to squeeze a door around a carseat. I took a chance and hoped that these four shutters would equal the width of our king-sized bed and they did exactly. So, tada! I really like the way it turned out, and am calling it my Pottery Barn knock-off because PB has a similar headboard for sale right now (their Alden Reclaimed Wood Headboard) for $900. (See below). Total savings? $875, bitches.

  5. This is better than the Pottery Barn headboard! I love the Habitate for Humanity store in Nashville! I would even more broke if I could fit more stuff in my car- but with a Volvo sedan and three car seats in the back, two strollers in the trunk and everything else in the front seat, my wallet is a little safer :)
