With my previous post showing you how wonderfully our Amazon.com bed turned out I thought I should let you in on Step2 for our room. Â Here’s what we’ve got so far:
Bed – Check
Attractive Bedding – Check
Extra Storage – Check
Headboard – …
That’s right, next on the checklist is a headboard. Not just any headboard either, an upholstered headboard! Â Something that will make sitting up in bed comfortable. Â Since our bed didn’t come with a headboard (and we haven’t had one for quite some time), I believe it is high time to change that! Â It’s a weekend project that I hope we can tackle soon, and if this rain would a take chill pill that would be great!
Here are a few idea’s I’ve found browsing the web:
I Â REALLY like this one!
I wouldn’t go dark brown, but the simplicity, formality, and comfort of it is what I’m shooting for
I go back and forth if I like the height of this one. Â I think I do… but do I?!?!
hah, see what I mean, it’s a mind-game I’m currently battling
Something clean and simple. It has nice lines, which I like
Pretty & Homemade (with a DIY tutorial online for step-by-step instructions)!
The edging that Â is so attractive is actually just molding you can get from any homeÂ improvementÂ store Â (score!!!)
I have to say, I absolutely LOVE this bed. Â Everything about it! Â The colors are just perfect
It looks so comfortable I just want to jump in it and take a nap right this moment :)
This piece is full of drama. While I would go a COMPLETELY different color,
the height is fun. Doesn’t it looks ultra soft for your head to lean on while reading a good book?!!
There ya go. Â Those are my current “inspirations”. Â Now I get to wait for Stephen to show me which ones we should nix off the list. Â I have a feeling the one right above isn’t gonna make the cut – but I still wanted to show you. Â It’s so Victorian and busy with all that gold, but we’re looking at the structure and framing of the headboard, not the walls-of-drapes. Â What do you think?! Â Do any of them stand out to you? Have you ever made your own headboard? What about upholstery?! Â Any upholstering experts out there that would like to visit one weekend soon? Â I’ll make brownies!! Â ;)
