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.
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.
If you’re feeling really creative you can actually build your own bookshelf headboard by combining and stacking separate pieces like this gorgeous example from Love Chic Living.
A chalkboard wall in the kids’ bedroom is an absolute no-brainer as the little ones will inevitably start writing on the walls sooner or later. Instead of spending a fortune on a bedroom theme and style that is fixed chalkboard walls allow you to usher in multiple themes depending on the changing whims and fancies of your kid.
Painting the ceiling in green can be a fun alternative and by leaving the walls white you will still have a neutral and versatile backdrop that will beautifully showcase wall art and sculptural décor additions.
The use of various shades of white also minimizes visual fragmentation in the room and it is a color that works beautifully with French country beach cottage chic or just cottage chic variants of the style. As a rule when in doubt turn to white in the shabby chic bedroom!
Similar to the first example shown in this article this bookshelf headboard from Made By Mood shows how you don’t necessarily need to put yours up against a wall and instead makes a great solution for a partition.
House of Turquoise shows you how to create more of a tropical look while Casa Tres Chic takes a different route with a more masculine nautical design. Twin beds also look quaint and comfy when you go along with a country theme. Check out these great headboards from Favorite Paint Colors. Charming and rustic!
