That’s right folks! I finally found a headboard that I like. Can I get “WAHOO!”?
No? Maybe next time. ;)
Anyway, I found this headboard on Amazon thanks to my little brother who actually just purchased the same one for his bedroom. How crazy is that?! I’m incredibly excited about the statement it makes in my room! For one, it grounds my bed and makes it a much more polished and substantial center piece on that wall. Secondly, it provides a tiny bit of a break between the geometric pattern on the wall and the floral pattern on my bed, allowing them to play even more nicely together. I’m still loving the mix of those two patterns in this room.
Anyway, for the process. My brother told me about this fantastic headboard (product link) he had ordered and suggested I check it out on Amazon. I had very little hope, but then I opened the page and actually cheered. I loved the curved line across the top, the simple design, and the price tag of only $54! Fifty-four dollars! I couldn’t believe it.
I actually ended up getting mine for $40 because it was on sale when I ordered it! What what?? Amazing.
I’d had my heart set on something a bit more traditional, likely a rescue from a thrift store that would involve stripping and painting and a whole process. Something along these lines:Side note: Please excuse the terrible Photoshop. Also, throwback to that crazy lace curtain. I’m not sure why I ever thought that worked well after painting my wall. I blame that one entirely on project euphoria brain… Sheesh.
Anyway, I was more than happy to accept the clean lines of this headboard in place of the mythical dream headboard shown above, and seeing those two pictures side by side, I think I actually like the more modern styling of the one I bought more than the traditional lines of that Photoshopped one. It’s a very different feel, but I like the addition of a few more clean-lined modern elements in my bedroom.
Clarkus was immediately smitten, and the setup was incredibly easy. I just followed the instructions that came in the package, and about 30 minutes later, I had a fully-formed headboard in my living room.
Next, all I had to do was convince Clarkuscat that sleeping on the now-empty box was more fun than sleeping on the headboard itself before I could move it to its final spot of honor in my bedroom.I’m loving it! And I have so many new ideas spinning in my head now that I see the room with headboard in place! There will definitely be more updates to come in this room. I’m looking at you circa-1999 paper lantern!
A headboard really makes a difference in a bedroom, doesn’t it? Anyone else out there working on some bedroom updates? Anybody else make one update in a room only to realize how many more you want to make!?
