I found some wonderful worn painted driftwood today, battered aqua, and will see if it can go into the new headboard I am contemplating.
There are some good finds out there after the storms, but I seem to walk always when the tide is high – couldn’t even complete the tour of the marina as so much has washed away and it is impassable, and only a 6’4″ tide today. So, lean pickings.
I tried to make a bedhead much like this one eight years ago but it went horribly wrong and looked some tatty prop from the Magic Castle, pure Disney. I am convinced now the secret is in the wood, reclaimed and honest, and slightly battered.
