Victorious Headboard

After a cutthroat debate, a winner has finally emerged:

With a whopping 74% of the votes, the headboard you guys preferred is the curved headboard.  And, I couldn't agree with you more!  This poll was actually helpful in two ways.  First, sometimes we all need a little idea support, and a curved headboard was a little out of my comfort zone, especially because the rest of the room was a little angular and I was a little afraid that something so prominent would look out of place.  It's nice to be able to ask 50 people and have them give you their opinion.  It's even better when their opinion matches your own!

Secondly, Mike's not that big on change, and isn't exactly what you would call an adventurous decorator, (sorry honey if your reading this, but it's true).  He's definitely from the school of less is more, and even something like a headboard that can be easily removed of changed, he's still less than excited.  That's where you guys come in.  Having a little help from people that are interested in the same things that I am, and since your reading home blogs, I'm assuming you all know what your talking about, gives me a little support in my argument to try something new.  And, although he gave me the predictable, "You're crazy." he can see that a new headboard, whether it was curved or square, isn't that crazy and will actually look nice in the room.

So thank you to all that voted!  With your little click, you've helped me grow some kahunas and try something new and given me some design clout in my household!

PS. After numerous requests, I've started writing a post about my kitchen countertop painting.  I'll have it finished sometime this week, so check back to see the process I used and how they're holding up after a year of use!  


  1. I don't even know how I stumbled across this blog, but you've inspired me! I just bought a house with my fiance in Nashville, TN and I was feeling overwhelmed with all of the rehab we want to do. Thanks for blogging about the whole process, I love your ideas and decorating! :)

  2. Stephanie - Thanks for stopping by! I started this blog to show my family and friends what we're up to and I'm so flattered that people have found inspiration! Good luck with your new house, a lot of the time it may feel overwhelming, but the payoff is so worth it!
