Sweet Dreams!



My headboard REALLY needed a makeover!
It had this black swirly wrought iron looking type thing in the center of it when we first bought it YEARS ago.
I removed the swirly thing and was having SO MUCH trouble figuring out HOW to fill the hole!
It was horrible. I had not a clue how to fix it!

Then I thought about old tin tiles (which I LOVE!) The hubby mentioned they might be hard to cut and nail into the wood and also any tin tiles I had found so far were a little out of my budget. :(



 BUT THEN! I found these inexpensive plastic tiles. I figured I could just paint them to try to give them an old tin tile LOOK. 
I cut them to size and it was easy to do because they are made of plastic.
 I then painted them with MMS MP in grain sack. 
Then I distressed then with a sanding block.
Then I just tacked them on from the backside! 
And well, they turned out pretty good! 
  
                                            They certainly work for now!



Hope this inspires you!
