So if you’ve listened to this week’s episodes of Unshaken you heard about the headboard I built this weekend (all by myself might I add... @tylerosample
was out of town 💁🏼♀️ #humblebrag
Now you might think, wow I didn’t know she was a carpenter, and you would be correct in your thinking! In fact, until this weekend I’d never even used miter box (type of saw 😉). This project went down something like.... scrolls through Instagram feed... oh thank you pretty home decor ad, I LOVE that wood headboard- “click” oh what?!? It’s 5 million dollars... I bet I could build that. I mean it can’t be that hard. I bet the wood is only like $100. Come on Mila, let’s go to Home Depot! A couple hours and two men who thought I would never pull it off later, I had all the wood spread out in the living room (because it hasn’t stopped raining in like a month 🙄). The hardest part was trying to make all the angles line up but once the puzzle pieces fit it just needed screws, sanding and stain. (And mom strength because it was super heavy to get upstairs!!)
Needless to say I get in trouble sometimes thinking things can’t be that hard, and once I start, I’m certainly not going to admit defeat or let my husband come home to the mess I made with out even telling him 😬. However that stubbornness when redirected becomes determination and voila- New master bedroom headboard! And a super surprised family 😂!
told me to post pictures in the show notes but I just made the bed for the first time this week #momlife
so I refused to take a picture of it until today. Morals of the story: be careful on Instagram(and Pintrest😏), always take pictures of your work to go back and show the doubtful men at Home Depot who underestimated you, and don’t give up!!! 😘 #stronglikemom #neverunderestimateagirl #diyheadboard
