|So many ideas went through my head when looking at this bare wall. I needed to create something myself because the "daybed" is actually a full bed pushed up against the wall and not a standard size that could be purchased.|
|Photo 1 & 2: I always loved the look of the reclaimed wood headboard or walls but wasn't sure if I wanted to commit to actually installing them to the wall.|
Photo 3 & 4: And while the thrifty idea of pallets sounded like a great idea I didn't have the extra space to waste behind the bed.
I went with this Highbury Oak Laminate from Floor & Decor.
It is $34.15 for a box of 10 planks. I needed 9 so it was perfect.
*The color has a gray undertone which gives it a reclaimed look.
|I placed them above the base moulding and lined them up.|
I put a small piece of double sided tape on the top of each plank and done.
It took me ten minutes tops!
|The thin planks were key for this space. The nursery was a guest room before Rowan's arrival and we wanted to keep the bed in the room for late nights with the babe or extra sleeping space for guests.|
The Hidalgo Bed from Anthropologie has a similar look ranging from $1,999.95-$2,998.00!
|I'll stick with my $35 vertical plank version. ; )|
|We love it... |
Have a good one!
