Merry Christmas!!.

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!! It has been a busy, hectic month for our family. I am going to try and make a strategy plan for next year so that I can be more organized for Christmas and be able to enjoy it more than I did this year; granted there have been circumstances out of my control that have made the past couple months harder than they normally would have been. I will blog more about my plan later (maybe some of you can give me some suggestions).
I really do typically love this time of year! I love celebrating the birth of our Savior; especially singing the songs we this time of year about Jesus's birth; they just touch my soul! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy the time with your family!!

My headboard.

I have not had a headboard for a loooooong time and I had this idea floating around in my head that I wanted to turn an old door into a headboard. So, this is what I came up with...

An up close picture. I painted it white and then stained it to make it look nice and used!
I looove my headboard!! I bought an old, beat up 5 panel door off of craigslist and with a little sweat and annoyance I was actually able to make a pretty cool headboard. I started off by sanding the door down to the bare wood and then I cut the end that was a bit longer to the same size as the other end. I painted it white, knocked the edges off by sanding, and then stained the heck out of it. I was a little nervous at first because it was soo white and then when I put the paint on it was a little darker than I was wanting but I stepped away for a bit came back and decided I liked the color that it was. This was a lot of fun and I really am happy with how it turned out!
