Being Creative Step 1

So ever since our stay at a fly hotel for our 5th anniversary, I've been longing for an upholstered headboard. A crafty DIY-er could secure plywood and batting and make one, but that's even out of our budget. But I had a yard of outdoor fabric I picked up at Calico Corners earlier this year and decided just to hang it on the wall with some double-sided tape. It's not exactly even, but it is a nice shot of color and one day I'll move it farther down the wall so that it's looks more headboard-y. But it's a step in the right direction towards a more colorful bedroom. Next up: spray paint for the lamp shades.
