Take off your Spurs and Stay awhile...

Our guest bedroom was fussy with blue and white porcelain with light yellow walls.  Very traditional and feminine.

  When we started our remodel I decided I was going with a Western  theme.  We had discarded our headboard when we got a King bed and I decided to resurrect it with hair on hide and nailhead trim and use it for the guest room.   I made a paper pattern to cut the hide to size and attached it with Barge glue.  Since the headboard was pressed wood with a veneer over it I had to rethink my just nailing....I had to actually drill every hole for the tacks because the nails would just bend and not go in.  It was a very time consuming process but worth the outcome.

The semi finished project,  I still have to make a cover for the window seat and a Roman Shade for the window.  I have a few more things to hang on the wall, but I am happy so far.  Notice in the top photo there was a door where the window seat is now. I have prints on the wall you can't see here that are a cherished gift from my dear "TrainWreck" over at Cowboys, Kids, and Sunsets blog.  
I am lucky to have several ultra talented artist friends, makes me feel so inadequate but we all have our strengths I guess, just don't know where mine are yet....!!!! 

Oh heck,
I will show you that wall so you can see what a great artist she is.
