Regardless of which camp you fall into there is little doubting the fact that shabby chic has made giant waves in the world of interior design over the last two decades. Today the elegant style is more popular than ever before and homeowners are increasingly gravitating toward its charming appeal.
There are all sorts of different DIY headboard projects you can take on to create something that’s really unique for your bedroom but perhaps the easiest way to do it is by simply using a regular bookshelf.
Have a look at this fascinating red and gray room from Amy Vermillion along with another second example from Number Four Eleven that features gold patterned curtains and matching decorative pillows.
Adding a similar unique headboard in your own home is pretty easy if you can find one of these antique doors and by just removing the existing layers of paint and painting it white you get a headboard that is both refined and shabby chic.
The headboard is one of those features in the bedroom that makes a big impact and can often define the style statement in the remainder of the room. The headboard choices for a shabby chic bedroom are truly diverse and it is often reclaimed wooden paneling or an old shutter or barn door that seems to do the job!
Unlike a real headboard designed for a bed your bookshelf doesn’t necessarily have to be the same height and width as one. In fact the taller and wider it is the more of a statement it will make! This first example from Domino is a short one but extends out about a foot from each side of the bed.
If you love white want a bedroom that has a touch of femininity and wish to discard the glossy modern alternatives then shabby chic is indeed the way forward. White is the preferred choice in most shabby chic bedrooms as it sets a relaxing backdrop that lets your vintage finds and antique accessories shine though.
Giving you an opportunity to express yourself showcase your artistic skills and personalize your bedroom with ease chalkboard paint is an absolute blessing for those who love dynamic walls!
