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.
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.
One of the misconceptions around is that chalkboard paint needs to be only in black. Sure most of the inspirations that we see use black for visual impact but if green or light yellow fit the color scheme and theme of your bedroom you can get them as well.
You can also have some real fun with the bedding. BHG shows a couple of twin beds with cute designs on the sheets plus trees and owls on the decorative pillows. Or why not keep it simple in the country? These two beds feature crips white bedding from Crate & Barrel with a bright green wall behind them.
