When Jane and I got married my parents gave us one of their old beds. We eventually gave it to Drew Carrie when they got married. We now have it back - in our guest room. Since then we've never had a headboard on our bed. We just have one of those metal frames (though we briefly just put the mattress on the floor). Recently we discussed trying to make some kind of headboard - something we could set pictures on, or something. Jane ran across this headboard in the pic, and it was actually cheaper to buy than to make. So... we now have a headboard. Jane decorated the room to match the pics we painted at one of those 'Wine & Canvas' dealios. All our bedrooms are now somewhat coordinated. Thanks to m'Lady.
