Finished and Fabulous! 
Blue and moldy. A gift from my Mother-in-Law. :) 
Detail, added ceiling tin to the back and whipped up a little cushion out of quilt scraps.

Got this blue (and not good blue) headboard from my wonderful mother-in-law, who has been dragging it around since the 70's, from storage unit to storage unit. I told her I would fix it up. Gave it back to her for her little sunroom, and she was in absolute tears of joy. I think she was really glad to have it back.
