Remember that time I was working on our guest room? Barely? Well, I am still working on it and I've come to realize that, due to some severe perfectionist tendencies, I have been holding out on you guys. I really wanted to wait until the room was "done" to show you what I've been up to. I still have a few things I'd like to do (find the perfect lamps, get the side tables in place, etc) but Mike and I tackled a project a few weeks ago and I just can't wait any longer to show you. It's too pretty ;)
I had this image from House & Home saved in my inspiration folder for ages and finally had the perfect room to put it to use. Using just wallpaper and some trim, we created a simple, easy, and cheap DIY headboard.
What do you think?
This was such an easy DIY project, with just a few simple steps:
- measure and tape of your desired headboard area with painters tape.
- measure, cut and apply wallpaper to wall (will vary depending on your paper, ours was the easy pre-pasted kind).
- smoooth it all out and let it dry.
- measure and cut your trim and nail to wall.... and you're done!
The wallpaper was an amazing find at Rona and the yellow colour was almost a perfect match to the Amy Butler fabric in my pillows. I got the roll for $30 (discounted because the roll was open) and spent $25 on pre-painted trim. For a total of $55 for the whole thing! Love it.
I hope to be back soon with some more finishing touches! Check out the before pics and other progress posts here, here and here.
