Quick and simple fix for a guest room! Rather than searching for a headboard, make your own unique piece! Thinking outside the box just a little yields big results – this piece below transformed my whole room. Here is the piece I found, folded up in a box at Bed Bath and Beyond. It’s meant to be a room divider:
I simply removed the hinges (4 total) with a screwdriver so that I could separate the panels, and painted over the birds in an orangy-reddish color so that it would match the room. I used a level and a couple of nails, and hung the panels on the wall. Check out the results!
This was the room, before:
What a difference! This took maybe a half hour! The piece was $79, and even less with a 20% off coupon (PS – BB&B takes expired coupons!) So even though it’s so chilly that snow has made a guest appearance in 49 out of 50 states this year, when I walk into our guest room, I get a little bit of Spring 🙂
*It looks like Bed Bath and Beyond may no longer carry this particular divider, but here is a beautiful and inexpensive one I found on amazon.com:
