Leather Headboard

One week 'till Christmas and we are busy here finishing some last minute preparations. I don't really have time for more work on the new look for our bedroom, except to keep it tidy, but I wanted to share our new leather headboard.
My niece and her hubby bought a new high end bedroom suite and gave us their barely used dark brown king sized leather headboard. We love it! It replaces the Shaker style blue headboard we had for a number of years:
(I sold both IKEA 3 drawer dressers and the king headboard/footboard on kijiji.)
We picked up two night tables and a long dresser with triple mirror, solid pine with dovetailed drawers, from a local lady for $75. I lightly sanded them before the weather got too cold and hope to paint them sometime next year. 
These are some inspiration photos for the changes I have in mind, from the 2008 HGTV Dream Home. We have a similar wall colour and we will use the leather headboard instead of the canopy fabric. I especially like the creamy colour of the night tables and mirrors and will probably use something similar on our dresser and night tables. Instead of the brown quilt I might add some blue. Do you have any inspiration photos or links with leather headboards and neutral colours?

Hoping all your holiday preparations and plans are going well! I'm going to enjoy this week off work, leading up to Christmas. If all goes well, I will get to meet up with a sweet blog friend for the first time. I hope you enjoy your week, too.


  1. Your headboard is wonderful, and I love the color on the walls. The off white is so pretty against the wall in the inspiration photo. I think the leather headboard is such a classic that you can do anything with it. Love it. Hugs, Marty

  2. How fun to get that headboard and I love your ideas. I really love the bedding on that bed too..so pretty! You have a really wonderful Christmas! ;D

  3. The leather headboard is going to look great in your bedroom. I'll have to keep my eyes open for some inspiration photos.

    I just sent you an email - let me know what you think.

  4. What a beautiful headboard! Your room is going to look stunning! What color will you paint the side tables? Have a wonderful day!


  5. Hi Elizabeth - what a great headboard, isn't it nice that you "inherited" it. You always find the best inspiration photos, I can't wait to see how your room shapes up. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  6. Elizabeth, I love your new leather headboard and your inspiration photo is wonderful, I can't wait to see the finished project sometime next year!
