Just position it against your bedroom wall push your bed up against it and voila! You now have a great looking headboard that also gives you extra storage for all your books and other accessories. Here are just some of the different ways people have been taking advantage of this clever idea.
In fact it is the genuinely aged furnishings that seem a lot more at home and welcome in this setting than those that have been treated to get a similar finish. Of course this means that a trip to the nearest thrift store or flea market is the best way forward when shopping for shabby chic bedroom décor and accessories. There are times when you will uncover an absolute gem in a nearby garage as well so always keep your eyes open!
Plush bedding is the next step forward as this is a style that encourages cozy comfort. A safe way to start is by first choosing the bed and then working around it by bringing in matching side tables lighting fixtures and accessories.
Regular everyday bookshelves are perfect for this idea but to step up your style you can get even more creative with different styles and even custom-made units if you’re willing to go that far. For example a very rustic bedroom theme from A Beautiful Mess Antiques uses an old weathered bookshelf with lots of old books to match the lovely country bedding.
If you have enough books you may not even need an actual bookshelf for this to work. Seriously. Just take a look at the wildly creative headboard made entirely out of books and nothing else found on We Heart It.
Depending on how small or oddly shaped the room is you may find that positioning twin beds side by side just doesn’t work. Here’s a room from Brit.co that solves that problem and gains extra storage from it too!
Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding accessories nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing.
The good old chalkboard is a pretty affordable option and those with a small workplace in the bedroom will find it pretty handy. An even cheaper option is the roll-out chalkboard and you can even buy self-adhesive chalkboard rolls that barely cost anything.
