Headboard help

How do you get to bed at night? Do you fall in exhausted and overworked? Or do you get to do something restful, like reading? If "Fifty Shades of Grey" isn't your style, maybe "Wheat Belly" or "Wild" is more like it.

Sometimes our surroundings don't make for the best place to relax. Taking time to make sure your bedroom is uncluttered, visually pleasing and promotes rest can be a challenge, but it's definitely worth it.

Starting with something as simple as a headboard can make a huge difference. Something to lean against other than the wall is great. It doesn't have to be fancy or high end. 

When we first got a headboard, I would head to my room after work and sit on my bed with a cup of tea, it felt so good!

One of our clients, Jana, had seen the Colette bed from Crate and Barrel. She loved it, but not the price.

We chose a cotton from Joanne fabrics. The nails are brushed silver, they were fun to find! You should be able to find them at a local fabric store. You can visit online sources also.

For more headboard inspiration visit Houzz for lots of great headboard photos. Think outside the box, or visit Pinterest and type headboard tutorial in the search box.

Happy Reading!
