Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Rain, Rain, Go Away.

It rained all day today so I didn't get to work Titan and had to cancel J's lesson since I don't have an indoor. I did do a lot of cleaning around the house and was on kitten watch all day as well. I am going to work on packing up boxes of clothes that I don't want tonight.

I am redoing the master bedroom. I want to do it in browns and blues. The room is quite large and I have no idea what to do with it. My sister, 2 of my cousins and 2 of my aunts are going to be coming up this weekend to help. Sister has some great ideas as she is the more creative of the two of us. We also want to make a headboard as the room has never had one but needs one. This is my comforter (from Target):

Any ideas on how to make a headboard? If you have any ideas or suggestions my only requirements are that it be inexpensive and not require too many power tools (per sister's request as we don't really know how to use power tools...)

I love the bedding!!

Head board? The only thing I have seen on Trading Places is using a piece of plywood, then covering it with batting and fabric.

Too bad you are not here. I teach at a vocational high school with two super wood working shops that could whip something up in a week.
