Twin Headboard

So, I found this headboard at the Goodwill. I really like the feel of it but it obviously needed work.
I can never remember to take  a picture before I start!
I love those curves!
I primed it with Valspar white and painted with Behr in Powdered Snow and then I distressed with sandpaper...pretty basic. I decided to not put a glaze over it. Just liked the white:)
Here is the finished product. The lighting isn't that great...sure wish I had some photography skills:(
And the close up.

I'm linking to the following parites:

oh I'm so jealous! I've searching our thrift stores for something just like this for my daughter with no luck! You did fabulous! Would love it if you came and visited some time!

Found you on the shabby nest and those curves are to die for! What a great find.

Great job! This looks very similar to one I did, you can read about it here http://cantrellsablessedlife.blogspot.com/2011/03/my-first-shabby-makeover.html. Although I have a new blog dedicated to all things decorating, http://thecozyoldfarmhouse.blogspot.com/

Hi There, I saw a comment you left over on TomKatStudios blog about attending Creative Estates Conference this weekend. I am not sure if your still looking for a ticket but I have one and I am unable to attend. I would hate for it to go to waste so I am hoping someone can pick it up! I am willing to part with it for 75.00!
If you are interested please let me know
Thanks!
