Grandma 7 asked:
I have always wanted to make a headboard. Yours is just gorgeous. Especially the extra space on top to display items. Your really did a fantastic job.
IntFrugalista answered:
Thank you so much. It's been a little over a year since we built it and I'm still in love with this piece.
Robert Brantzeg asked:
It looks just like one of our door headboards. www.vintageheadboards.storenvy.com Keep up the good work - it turned out awesome!
IntFrugalista answered:
I got the idea from seeing one of your door headboards on pinterest. I just had to have one but shipping one of yours to Canada would be $$$$$ so Mr. Frugalista and I put our heads together and figured out how we could build one ourselves. I just love it and get so many compliments! If you ever consider branching out to Canada, you know where to call. ;)
