My shagalicious headboard. Don't try this at home, kids!February 11th, 2010 in member junk
That warning is not so much out of concern for your safety as it is concern for your SANITY. This is a past project of mind that I never intended to share with you, but here goes.
So many of my projects are 1 time situations. I'm in learning mode and want to try so many things at least once. However the thing about learning mode is that you learn the negatives as well as the positives. Well on this project, the positives were that it was different, pretty cool, and most of all contemporary styled (I was afraid I was heading towards a country rut -- not that there's anything wrong with that!).
The main negative was that it was VERY time-consuming to make -- I mean it took FOREVER! I had first seen something similar done on one of those decorating shows, the kind where the room is done in 24 hours or less. HA! This project took me countless hours and literally thousands of staples. But once I'd started I was determined to see it through. And of course, because it was going to be so cool, I had made it kingsize.
