Drape + Dapper »

Confession.  I  have a serious crush on area rugs.  I am forever looking for that PERFECT rug and lately, I am absolutely loving everything with patterns.  Kilim, Moroccan, Persian.  Give them all to me!  Many people can be a little afraid of color + pattern but I find it perfect for adding a little texture to a room.  Plus we recently painted our space to white walls and white trim so adding that pop of color goodness can really define a space.  And while I do love rugs that are neutral…..lets face it, I also love ones that hide dirt. For real.  With 3 kids…a neutral rug in a high traffic area is just not in the cards. 🙂  So I put together some amazing classic patterned rugs that are my absolute fav! And at all different price points.

AND…just a friendly reminder….PLEASE don’t pattern your enter house with one trend — chevron anyone?!  Really. No more with the chevron. Ha!! While chevron can be considered a timeless look if chosen correctly – I think we can all agree it has become over done.  Sometimes less is more. 🙂

Links below!!  Which is your favorite?!?!

Happy Friday!  I’m loving anything blue lately, especially these off the shoulder styles.  Pair these pretty pieces with white denim for the win!

We recently upgraded our bed to the softest, most amazing king size bed in the universe. We did this to accommodate those little humans that live in our house and keep sneaking their way in our world as we sleep.  Because of the upgrade, we needed a new headboard and I was ready to tackle this job myself!!  We have a one whole stall in our garage filled with old barnwood from my husbands grandparents barn.  This was the perfect project to finally start using it!

Things I used :

Miter Saw

Sander

Screws

Barnwood

***************

The first steps were to pick out the right pieces for the headboard.  As much as I loved a polished look, this headboard was meant to be a little more rustic. I love knots and scratches because I find it adds character.

King sized beds are giant.  And I wanted this headboard to be a few inches on each side of the bed……so be sure to measure a couple of times!

Measure and cut wood to size. (wear safety googles when using the miter saw!)

Sand each piece of wood, front + back.

Lay out pieces on the floor to find the best look for the headboard.

Once inside, we attached wood on the back with screws.

It was insanely simple and is THE perfect blend of modern + rustic.

Best part of this bed makeover – the cost.  You do not have to spend a crazy amount of money to give your room a different look.  All in all this makeover cost about $300. We did a quick change of the bedding from something dark to all white linens with pops of color + pattern.  White simple side tables from IKEA that hold these AMAZING gold lamps from Target Style. And headboard cost was ZERO. Yep. $0.
