To redo, or not do, or to just sell it. #thriftedthursdays

I just can't decide how much I do or don't like this headboard we thrifted.  The husband wanted something that could hold books, which is very practical and useful.  But, I'm feeling this is too Pottery Barn or something for me.  I like the functionality, but it's just not what I want.  I don't know if I should try and redo it, paint it?  Or what.  I would prefer the slats the horizontal instead of vertical, but I just don't know.  The husband bought it because it was a good deal and we've been searching forever, but I'm looking for ideas.

Anyone?  Or, if you would like to buy it. . . let me know. 


  1. We want to do a bookshelf headboard too, because we don't have a lot of room for nightstands next to the bed. This is my dream:


  2. Maybe if you paint the beadboard part a mustard yellow or turquoise and the outside part turquoise or black?
