Ornate Gray Headboard

I found this listed on Craig's list & knew I needed it!  What a beautiful bed!  The only down side was it was in about 20 pieces!

The foot board was in such bad condition that I decided not to put it back together but to cut it apart.  The legs I put in my booth & they sold in less than a week!  The center I painted, put some hooks on the back & have it available in my booth as an architectural piece.  The headboard I reattached all the center details & painted it a mix of grays & whites.  No distressing on this piece.  Since it was an antique it was a full size but it measures wide enough to fit a queen size bed without the mattress hanging off the sides!  I really wished I had somewhere to put this but I took it to my booth & it sold quickly.
