Coastal Cool

I saw this bedroom in a recent Coastal Living and thought “now this is perfect”….except for the price tags on the fabrics used on the bed….and the custom headboard…. so I tried to make a slightly more budget friendly version for you.  While it’s not CHEAP, it’s a bit lighter on the wallet- as long as you can get a little DIY.

So for this copy you’ll need a glue gun and hammer- the headboard by Serena & Lily gives you a great shape to follow.  a few inches from the edge, hot glue gun 1/2″ grosgrain ribbon following the shape as best you can (not easy- you’ll have to cut and seam in a few places).  The hammer in nailheads on top of that every 1/2″ as well.

    I always love a DIY that seems easy enough for even me to pull off. Love the headboard so, so much!

  4. Love that delicious bed! All of the fabric textures are so inviting! I have been dying to DIY a headboard for sometime now…crushing on a grey, tufted version. Yum.

    I am really excited to go and try this even though my DIY is something to be ashamed of- thanks for the great post!

  6. That headboard and pillows sell it. But, it’s not too hard of a look to copy.

  7. When I got my copy this month I drooled over that page too…..oh, and I really want a RA double or triple gourd lamp like you show…just can’t quite pull the trigger….it is so hard when you can find such amazing lamps at Homegoods for $39.99…but alas, I haven’t found one I love as much! Thanks for sharing! xoxo Shelli

    Eeeeeeeek! I literally just had a redecorating stint in my bedroom and did slate and gold and I love it. It was totally by accident too and now its become my absolute favorite. Ive been wanting to take a shot at the DIY headboard so hopefully I can pull it off!

  13. I am seriously loving this bedroom. I really dig the colors and pattern. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I am making two of these beds in a “bunk room” for a client. We are doing most of her beach house in Quadrille/China Seas fabric. I am changing up the pillows though and we’re using John Robshaw Walnut Medallion euros with Vintage Stripe Indigo bolsters and adding Gent Stripe Indigo bedskirts. Going to love it!
