      1. Your LOVE headboard is nice but I want to share a safety concern with you. The hangers on top are deadly. Trust me I know saw on a xray and know what those small metal hooks can do. Those hooks do not need to be placed anywhere a child’s head could contact them. Most importantly never put them on a stand or post/pole that could be pulled over by a child.

    1. Hi Justine! We don’t have an Etsy shop – we make pretties and funzies for ourselves and as gifts and then provide the tutorials on here so you can make your very own awesomeness! If we ever do decide to sell our creations and open up an Etsy shop, I’ll let you know! Thanks for checking us out!
