never want to leave

November 15, 2011

i never want to leave my bedroom. can i just live there? it makes me so happy right now. we finally put the headboard up. well my husband spent the majority of the evening putting it together. immediately it made our room feel so much larger! we used to have an iron canopy bed. turns out that black box was making our room seem so much smaller than it really was.

i think it might just be my most favorite diy. seriously loving the happy parrot fabric!!! now my room seems like such a happy place to go. light and airy. and i am so glad that i went with the yellow instead of grey. what do you think?

the pictures aren’t the best because it was super overcast.

    LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I was actually looking for headboards and thinking “why don’t I just MAKE one? It would be way cuter than anything I can find! Inspiration!!

    Oh this is gorgeous! I’ve been desperately dreaming of a yellow upholstered headboard myself but have been scared to give it a go! This is really lovely – I don’t blame you, I wouldn’t want to leave either!

    PS New to your blog, just came over from your tweet (RT by @designsponge) xxx
