This nifty headboard project was created by Jen from Scissors and Spatulas for Somewhat Simple. It’s got a cool backstory.

“I found this cupboard on the side of the road and immediately did a u-turn to rescue it,” says Kate from Heir and Space. The cupboard was solid maple, and Kate loved the clean lines.
“This chair had been sitting in my mom’s basement for years,” Jann from Newton Custom Interiors tells us. “It was originally part of my grandparent’s dining room set.” With history like that, how could Jann not try to give it a second chance?
