hi my name is Decorating Diva...and i'm a copycat. {story of a headboard}

hi friends,
i'm just going to say it- i have confession to make- i'm a copycat {meow}! when i SEE something i like, i might have to copy it- but only because the original is so lovely, or cute or too expensive for me. in this case it's all about the loveliness Lindy created over at Cottage Hill. she made this exquisite head board out of PLYWOOD people! PLYWOOD! i would never have guessed when i saw the pics, that it was plywood! she did a fantastic job and if you have never been to her blog, please go check it out, she is very talented! she is also hosting a giveaway of one of her very own paintings, visit her to see how you can enter to win! so, i already had a little full size head board {before}

so i decided to paint it black and try my hand at her design. i emailed her to show her how i'm a copycat and she very graciously complimented my version. i asked her if i could do a post about the headboard and she again was gracious! so please go visit her blog- because she deserves all the credit for this one!Thanks Lindy of Cottage Hill! have a great week and keep creating!
