I’m Calling It Done!

The guest bedroom that is.  The last thing I wanted to add to this room was a headboard.  I ordered this one from Walmart ~ Queen size for $179.00, the least expensive upholstered headboard I’ve been able to find.  I got it in this color, too.

It had great reviews and shipping to my home was just under $30.00.  If you have it shipped to the store, and go pick it up, shipping is free.  Here is what the room looked like before the headboard.

I put it in place and removed the canvases I had there {kind of like a headboard placeholder}.

I also added the great sign I had ordered from Paula at Castle & Cottage.

That’s it! I’m done in here!  Except for clearing out the closet of things I stuck in here when we moved in, and keeping an eye out for a small but nice upholstered chair, I feel like this room is complete now.

Another update to make to the home tour now!

Ahh that is a pretty headboard Kathy. Really made the room come together. I also love the price! Good deal there my friend.

I love that headboard too and I'm shocked you found it at Walmart for such a great price! Nice and neutral and it will look great forever! Seriously thinking about one for my daughter's room. We still have just the bed frame and are using lots of pillows. It looks okay but I think it needs a headboard. Makes a big difference.

Nice headboard! Your room looks warm and inviting and the headboard is a nice finishing touch. It really lightens up the room.

Kathy-It looks GREAT- and what a good price, too. It looks much "richer" than the price paid. The whole room is really pretty...and I think any guest would be comfortable in there- xo Diana

Hi Kathy,
Your guestroom looks very pretty and your guests are going to love it!

I didn't realize that Walmart carried such a pretty headboard. The price is good too since most I have seen are $300 plus.

hugs

Your headboard looks wonderful. I never would have thought it came from Walmart. Nice and tailored.

Walmart? Walmart?

Sorry - can't believe that fabulous headboard is from ...
Walmart?!

It's fabulous - and would be perfect in my guest room. The sign is perfect and love the bolster pillow.

Just beautiful, Kathy. I'd love to be a guest in that room.

Hi Kathy,
What a beautiful guest room, the color palette is very pretty. xo ~Liz

Kelly said...

The new headboard is the perfect finishing touch. I really love the sign you hung above it too! It has a great shape.

Sandy said...

HI Kathy! So nice to meet you. That is an excellent price for a headboard and looks great! I didn't know Wal-Mart sold headboards! I know JCPenney sells them, but the price is way up there for most of them. You did good!!

Love your blog!

I thought it looks fabulous before but I definitely like the AFTER better! More clean & polished looking.

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Beautiful headboard, and you chose the right color too. It pops off the wall. Very pretty! Visiting from Open House Thursday!

Good for you to find such an upscale, fabulous headboard for a great price! I just love that you found such a winner of a headboard at Walmart... does my heart good!
Great post!!!!

Michelle said...

It looks done to me, what a beautiful restful room. I can see myself curled up with a magazine and glass of wine!

Debbie said...

That headboard is the perfect finish. I think the whole room looks just plain lovely.

melissa @ daisymaebelle.com said...

Your room looks great! I cannot believe that you got that headboard at Walmart?! I would never have thought to look there. I love how it lightened things up. I am all into "lightening" these days! I guess in a few more years we will be adding back in the "heavier" items again!

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

The guest room looks beautiful Kathy! That headboard is incredible....both in style and price! The bed looks gorgeous! Angie xo

I really love this headboard! I love the feel of this room as well... and I love your new wood floors... love it all! :)

Judy said...
