My headboard is finally up, and I LOVE it! I originally saw this pattern on a coffee table, and knew it would be the prefect backdrop for my bed. I went out and bought a miter saw for this project (because I have a dream of having a bunch of power tools in the garage at my reno house, where I can make all sorts of cool projects) soooo you will have to either invest or find a carpenter buddy for this project. But the good news is that once you make all the cuts, the assembly takes no time, and the outcome is pretty phenomenal! With my headboard being complete, my bedroom is officially a happy oasis, now time for a nap! Step and supplies after the break…

If you all have been following along on ISPYDIY snapchat, you saw that a month or so ago I was building a headboard for my bed, finally! I knew I wanted to make something out of wood, cutting it to create a pattern. After buying a new miter saw (yay power tools!) and a bunch of wood, I practiced my cuts then put together the prices to create something I am pretty proud of. I finally moved it into my bedroom, so stay tuned, and in the meantime enjoy some of my inspiration for this project!

I’m back with another fun room makeover! This time we transition Lori’s nursery into a woodsy themed room for her son (remember his camp playroom? And Lori’s bedroom oasis?). Buffalo check is my current favorite, so I was jazzed when I saw that Lori had already purchase some plaid items for the room. I took that theme and ran with it! My favorite part of the room is the chalkboard wall and live edge desk. You should have seen how excited Liam was when we told him he could draw on the wall!
I have become quite the hoarder of live edge pieces of wood, and this one worked perfectly as a little desk. I sanded down the sharp corners and covered with 2 coats of a fast-drying polyurethane, then drilled shelf brackets into the studs and the bottom of the wood.
I debated painting the whole wall or just doing 3/4, and am super happy we left a little space and added the mountain range decals, it adds a little more fun to the room, no? Lori found this crazy cute tree book holder that created the perfect reading corner next to the oversized bead bag.
We upgraded Liam from a crib to bunkbeds (the ladder is in hiding until he is ready to safety climb)! I am in love with the blue, it’s the perfect shade!
I found some line drawings of a lantern and other woodsy things, and the plan was to get a projector, but they ended up being simple enough to freehand (the magic of chalk is that you can mess up as much as you want, and wipe it away!) Hope you like the room as much as Liam did!
