Fireplace Mantel gone headboard

So my bball friend Cindy was remodeling her home.  She had some beautiful crown molding she was throwing out and she said I could have it.  I decided I wanted to make a headboard out of it.  But then she called and said that I could have the fireplace mantel too!  Well as it turns out the fireplace mantel was the perfect size for a queen we used it instead. I thought I was the first to do it...but after I googled it I found out I was NOT the first. But It is our own design. I didn't see any others like it.

And viola!! With some help form the husband we got ourselves a free new headboard!! Yahoo!! I am sure I will eventually change the white color to a cream but given the size of our house I wasn't conducive to paint the whole darn thingl

And while I was at it I finished distressing Richaels dresser that I bought him off KSL before we got hitched. thought I would throw that pic in too.
