It’s no secret that I am cheese junkie. Creamy, smoky, stinky, I love them all. And I LOVE cheese fondue. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across packaged cheese fondue in my local Kroger deli a while back. I almost did a dance right then and there! With 8 people in our family, going out for fondue is pretty much out of the question. Just for a cheese fondue appetizer, drinks, and tip, we’re looking at over $100. For an appetizer. Crazy, right?!

I’ve been talking about doing the same thing in this home, and finally got around to it this week.

My bed has been sitting on the floor, no frame, no headboard, no nothing, for the last 2 years. About a year ago I started shopping around for headboards and was appalled by the pricing. I was griping to my mother, and she said, “Tiffany, just make your own!” Well duh! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that before! So I rushed out and bought plywood and the material I wanted for the cover. I found 2 old, ugly comforters at a discount cloth outlet that were perfect for the padding.
