I had therefore resigned myself to making my own bedhead after seeing DIY instructions on another blog (http://www.centsationalgirl.com/2010/01/diy-simple-tufted-headboard/) but then last week, up popped an affordable solution!
For those who haven't come across it before, Temple & Webster is an online store that source various homewares and offer them at discount prices on the website for a limited period (subscription is free). Last week they were selling headboards and this is my purchase. At just over $400 (plus $30 odd in shipping) it's not far off what it would have cost me to make my own (minus the frustration and potential novice look!)
I am looking forward to receiving it sometime in the next 2-4 weeks. Photos in situ to come!
P.S. Sorry for the 2 blank posts last week, I left Blogger open on the iPad and my 2 year old couldn't resist those big orange buttons for 'new post' and 'publish'!
Blogging: anyone can do it! ;)
