DIY Grasscloth Covered Headboard

July 13th, 2015

There’s something about a wingback headboard that makes it extra cozy – those little wings on each side make you feel as if you’re extra safe snuggled up inside. Grasscloth wallpaper is also a favorite decorative accent, it’s a chic way to texture to a space or piece of furniture. I’ve had a long time design crush on textured furniture so I thought to combine the two and made this grasscloth covered wingback headboard for a guest bedroom.

Originally I contemplated four walls of grasscloth in this space but was deterred by the cost of multiple rolls and how long it would take (I’ve done it before by myself, it took a loooong time to hang it alone) and what happens if and when I sell this house? A future buyer might not be as crazy about a room covered in grasscloth wallpaper as I am.

Instead, I limited the use of grasscloth to a DIY headboard, inspired by a few accessories I’d seen around town like this storage box wrapped in grasscloth spied at HomeGoods and the mirror in my Mom’s upstairs loft, both have a gorgeous textured woven finish, divine!

Weekend Reading

July 10th, 2015

The only thing worse than a having a cold in winter is having one in summer, ugh. I’m not one to sit still but I actually listened to my body on this one and rested so I’m on the mend.

Thank you so much for your kind comments on the bathroom vanity makeover and the COTS family room project, I appreciate them so much! This weekend I’ll be shopping for accessories for that space. Next week, I have a fun DIY headboard project to share and a separate summery space makeover reveal as well.
