DIY woven headboard

DIY headboard // Guest Room // Sarah Sherman SamuelWell, I’ve switched some things up a bit… there’s a bedroom in our studio! We have family coming in for the holidays so I’ve temporarily converted the studio to a guesthouse. When Archie arrived we transformed our only guest room to his nursery, which left us with no space for family to stay, other than crashing in the living room. Once we built-out the new studio space my parents were able to stay there when they visited but we didn’t have that great of a set up. My mom would sleep on the sofa and my dad on an air mattress.

This year I wanted to welcome them with a much more comfortable space, so I set out to create a beautiful bedroom on a budget that would also be easy to convert back and forth from my studio to a guest room when we do and don’t have house guests. I had most things on hand but the design started to come together when I saw this rug and a DIY headboard idea was born.

Supplies Needed:
Hammer
Small Finish Nails
6 x Placemats
2 x Rug

DIY headboard // Guest Room // Sarah Sherman SamuelDIY headboard // Guest Room // Sarah Sherman SamuelI wanted a headboard to frame out the bed and make it feel like a proper bedroom and all I did was purchase 6 of these table mats and 2 of these rugs and secure them to the wall with tiny finish nails. Five minutes later… instant headboard!

Another great thing about this DIY is that I can repurpose the placemats for a table setting while they aren’t in use as a headboard.

DIY headboard // Guest Room // Sarah Sherman SamuelDIY headboard // Guest Room // Sarah Sherman SamuelI bought this simple bed frame which has legs that screw off easily so we can store it without taking up too much space when we don’t have guests and I topped it all off with my favorite Parachute bedding. Next I added some ottomans as night stands, and a grounded it all with a Frances Loom vintage rug, from my ever growing rug obsession collection.

I am not sure how having a bed in the studio over the next month or so will affect my productivity. It is pretty naptime tempting after all, but I am sure my visiting family will appreciate it.

house update: finished bed & shopping for nightstands

recovered-bedNot a lot has happened in the bedroom since I last checked-in, however we did finish re-upholstering the old bed (more on that in a minute). Now, we are on the hunt for some nightstands. I stole the little plant stand from next to the dresser so I have something to put a glass of water on at night but Rupe still has nowhere to put his Harlequin novels (what’s a man to do!). So, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite nightstand options to try and narrow the search.

nightstand round-up // smitten studioGood nightstands are like the unicorn of home furnishings. So hard to find! I tend to like larger, more dresser sized nightstands like the campaign style or the double drawer, but in this space they might be a bit tight. I also love the look of a simple brass side table like the libby or the hexagon but they don’t offer up any storage. I thought I had found the perfect one when West Elm came out with the Penelope nightstand but they only make the all white version in large and, by george, I wanted the wood one in LARGE. What to do, what to do.

A-frame 2.0 – Den Bedroom

Back with the next room of our old A-frame 2.0 and how we re-decorated the space for the new owners! This room is the little den bedroom just off of the living room. You might remember the DIY headboard I had in there previously and how we added the vertical paneling to cover some horrendous walls. We glammed it up a bit for Caroline, Jayden and Robert, but the boho vibes are still strong too.

This is the original board for the re-design, by the time it went to the procuring, the side tables were sold out and we had to swap the rug but I love how this pretty pad with a nod to the mod turned out. See how I designed this space before, for us, and the before of the before here. Which is your fave?

Sapira Mattress

Guest Room // Sarah Sherman Samuel If you read yesterday’s post, you saw that we’ve set up a bed to temporarily convert my studio back to a guest house. You see, we have family coming to visit for the holidays and without any spare bedrooms in the house, I wanted to make sure they had a comfortable place to welcome them.

Sapira recently reached out to have me try out their mattress and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to create the dedicated guest space for the holidays, and it also gave me the excuse to execute the DIY headboard I had rattling around my brain (see the DIY post here).  READ MORE
