DIY Folding Headboard. Before3pm.com

About 6 months ago, I was sitting at the kitchen table, eating my breakfast, checking Facebook on my Kindle when a lightbulb went off in my head.

For a week or so prior to this moment, I had been lamenting in my head how uncomfortable it was to sit up in my bed to watch TV at night.  My husband had also been suffering from allergies, and I was contemplating how to help him breath better at night.

Believe it or not, my lightbulb moment was from my kindle!  My kindle case has a folding cover which allows me to view my kindle at two different angles by using a tri-fold cover.

Once I had the idea, it was just a matter of lots and lots and lots of trial and error!

Let me tell you a story.

My middle son absolutely LOVES arts and crafts.   Now, painting is definitely not my favorite activity because it is always such a mess, but he begged me to let him paint, and I gave in.

I set him up with his paint set, newspaper on the table, a cup for rinsing out his paintbrush, etc..

When he finished his artwork, he put everything away, including the cup of dirty water in the sink.

While the dishes were piled in the sink, the paint residue from that water cup managed to get on some of my plates, and to this day, two of my plates STILL have paint spots on them!

Why do I tell you this story?  Because when I actually TRY to get paint to stay on plates, it has never worked!!!!

That is, until now! Read More →
