Headboard Obsession

So I'm looking for a headboard and I can't get these out of my mind. It was love at first sight.
Thoughts? Tin or Wood? Hmmmm....

A Wall Stencil

Hey all! I recently decided to start to tackle painting my master bedroom. I want to stencil one wall for numerous reasons. 1. It's unique and different. 2. It's cheap. 3. When we try to sale the house, it's a better selling feature rather than wallpaper. They can just paint over it. 4. Did I mention that it's cheap?

The only bad thing is that it will probably take FOREVER. Man, what is it with me and trying to complete these loooong projects?

Well I looked online at places such as ETSY and most stencils that I liked were around 30 dollars. I really am drawn to the Moroccan ones. Then I luckily stumbled upon this tutorial and fell in love. Check it out: tutorial It even came with a free stencil. Yes, FREE!  
I think I want to do some form of white paint with silver stenciling. What do you think? I'm definitely going to have a blue comforter when my birthday rolls around and think silver paint would look really great ! Well I have it pictured in my head, but seeing it on the walls might be a whole other story!

In the meantime, check out these other photos:

Have I mentioned that I love antiques? Well I acquired this one from my sister-in-law a while back and I absolutely love it! I'm obsessed with the wood detail and the "secret" compartment on top. Right now I don't have a good place for it, so for now the office is its home.
You ask if I will do anything to it? Nope...some things are better left untouched.

What I Really Want

I really want to put white wallpaper on one wall of our bedroom. The only roadblock I am having is when we get ready to put our home on the market, will people actually like it? Probably not. So is it a good investment? Would it be a good purchase just because we will enjoy it (or should I say I will enjoy it...) Hmmm....for now I'll drool over these pictures.

I wish I could go jump in this bed right now. I've had a long, tiring work day. Here's to more energy tomorrow.

Discovered at Who knew a spider could be so pretty?
Found at She used dimensional paint and created her own designs. I'm in love!

Go to and you can download the template for Southern Living's etchings.
These thumbtack pumpkins were from Genius idea, right? I might have to try to make these!

Favorite Time of Year

October marks my favorite time of the year....fall. I love the weather and especially love seeing the trees change color.
