A Baseball Bed

We chose a vintage baseball theme for our son's bedroom.  Vintage meaning old hand-me-down balls and bats from our families.  My mom was thrilled to clear out the old balls and bats from her garage!  And Ryan dug out a glove that was his grandfathers.  We started making over the room last year but, honestly, didn't get very far.  {You can see my plans and inspiration in this post.}  We did, however, work on personalizing the headboard!



Ryan cut the knobs off the top and drilled a pilot hole.

I picked up these dowel screws from Lowes.  One end went into the ball and the other end into the pilot hole.

Here's a close up of the final results.  We think it adds some character to an otherwise boring headboard.

What do you think?
