bob series

Today’s Best of the Best is one of my newest blog crushes, Danielle from Danielle Oakey Interiors. She has great ideas and projects, and a beautiful eye for color and design. I’m so excited to watch her business grow…and to snag the ideas she shares along the way!


i am thrilled to be guest blogging at hi sugarplum.

cassie’s creativity and witty sense of humor keeps me coming back daily.
she asked me to share my most popular blog post in 2010
to my surprise, it is my $46.00 diy headboard.
this was one of my favorite diy projects.
it only took 6 simple steps and was super easy.

1. set in place 2. draw outline 3. cut. 4. staple batting 5. lay down fabric. 6. staple fabric.

i love the end result.
it was the perfect beginning to my daughter’s bedroom.

since then, her room has come a long ways.
a couple more diy projects and i am finished!

the best part, i hope to finish the entire bedroom for under $350.00!

thanks for letting me share cassie!
i hope you are enjoying your family time.

Thanks so much Danielle! Your daughter is going to just ooze style after growing up in that room! And I just realized that is the same fabric I’ve been considering for my new living room drapes!! Go check out all of Danielle’s projects, including the DIY Deer Head that’s got the blogworld buzzing!
Tomorrow is none other than my BBFF (blogger bff), Megan, from Honey, We’re Home!

  1. I am dying over this DIY project. I have never (and I have seen lots) ever seen a DIY headboard that turned out this fantastic! For me, the shape is what makes it. Great job. M.

    I love that Robert Allan fabric… for a while I had that fabric lining the back of my bookshelves in the dining room and the same drapery/pillow blue trellis fabric upholstering my chairs. It makes a great little girl's bedroom too. Must go check out that blog 🙂
