What Would You Do?

Now that the Master Bedroom Remodel is well underway, I figure it's about time to start thinking about our small but sturdy wooden headboard.

I've been meaning to refinish this wood headboard for years, to update it and give it a little pizazz. But now that we've gotten to that point in the remodel, I can't seem to be able to settle on any one finish for it!

So I figured I would ask you guys - our amazing readers.

Thanks to the power of Photoshop, I've whipped up a few examples of possible refinishes for this baby. And yes - we could just buy a brand new headboard, but what's the fun in that? We would save lots of money by just updating our existing headboard, and we'd be doing planet earth a favor by keeping it out of the landfill.

Here's the possible colors/stains I've been stewing about:



Dark Turquoise


Light Turquoise

  1. Oooh, the dark or light turquoise. Both look GREAT!

  2. I think the espresso might be nice: lets your pillows shine. And matches your sweet puppy--the ultimate accessory!

  3. I actually really like the darker turquoise color, but I also like the white. I think the turquoise is a nice change and brings out the colors in your bedding. Nice photo-shopping! Can't wait to see what you choose.

  4. we have an espresso bed frame and our color palette is similar to yours..we ADORE it.

  5. Like both the espresso and dark turquoise. But if I had to choose between the two, I'd go with the dark turquoise. Looks great with all your natural colors in there and continues the beach feel from your living room.

  6. I am a HUGE fan of the white or dark turquoise. I think the dark turquoise wins out over the white if I HAD to choose one :) It's a little unexpected!

    Can't wait to see what you decide!


  7. White or light turquoise, although I think the white will give you more versatility. It's really looking good in there.

  8. Light turquoise!!!! Or dark turquoise...

    Both are gorgeous!

  9. I actually really like the dark turquoise. I'm always afraid of color because what if I change my mind, but it looks great in your room!!

  10. I agree with most of the posters here... dark turquoise would be really cool. If you go turquoise, I'd put some glazing on it so it brings out the headboard pieces more.

  11. My immediate thought was white before I even looked at your photoshopped photos but I love the espresso a latte...

  12. Hmmm... I'd say either light turquoise or espresso.

  13. Black or dark turquoise

  14. The dark turquoise would be awesome! But then again, I'm a sucker for turquoise. :) Thanks for entering the giveaway on my blog!

  15. I love the dark turquoise! Would you consider a dark grey?
