Ive been so inspired by everyone on this site. What a wonderful place for creative minds to gather!

Re: My First Post!

Hey - I got the caption thing figured out :)

Re: My First Post!

Still learning....my captions didn't show up with my pics. But, I removed the paneling and mirror from the old waterbed headboard and replaced it with beadboard. I added new hardware to the dresser.
