bed makeover??

i have been thinking about a bedroom makeover-because i really hate our room right now.  i  haven't really put any effort into this room so i think it's about time.
  i have many different ideas, and cannot narrow it down.
when we finally move, we want a king-size bed, so we will need a new headboard. 

love this whole wingback situation going on

how could you not go for this tufted goodness

this reminded me of a screen i saw at z gallerie

isn't she a beauty?

however, sometimes i think i want to go modern with a platform bed, but downside: not sure if i want to deal with tucking in my covers

then, i saw this bed when we went to z gallerie.  now, it's not my first choice, but i have a bed very similar to this already. 
here' it is...if i painted this white and recovered the fabric area in the middle of the headboard...
finished it with nailhead trim-voila new bed -until we get a king.  once we get the new bed, this will just go in the guest room, but it will be a lot nicer and i definitely want to ditch the matchy matchy dressers!
what do you think?


  1. great! I can't have a fabric headboard because of allergies. weird, huh?

  2. I love the idea and quite honestly, I can't wait to see it when it's all done!! Yes, it will probably be a lot of work but well worth it. Good luck Dear!

  3. i am just sooo very obsessed with the second photo! i want tufted everything!! hah. and the brick wall! and the wood put-your-shoes-on-chest at the end of the bed? yes please.

  4. I love that idea! What an amazing project - and so much more affordable than a whole new bed (even if it is going to the guest room!)

  5. I love your idea but oc i always do love your ideas maybe cus i am mama and i can't wait to help you with all the projects.

  6. Glad i came across your blog :) Your bed would amazing in white with fabric etc - go for it!
