A modern touch to a bedroom.
If you couldn't make our first every (but definitely not the last . . . ) Buildaholics Party last night, here's some of the highlights
- Parson or slipper chair is a priority
- More beds in adult styles/sizes
- I'm not the only one who tiptoes around the tablesaw
- Circular saw isn't much better
- And we should do it again!
And photos too!
And as promised, one lucky attendee gets to go home with a $50 Lowe's gift card. Drawn at random (wow, I'm chatty, drew myself three times first!) our winner is . . .
Thanks ThisDIYLife, you have won our door prize!
For everyone else, you can see the complete party conversation here, and stay tuned, we'll be doing that again!
And because you asked for more adult beds, thought I would post one that you can make for about $15 in lumber - or at least under $20, that will make a huge impact in your bedroom. No fancy bedding required with this headboard!
Especially if you choose a color. Just throw some white bedding on, and instant chic style without the cost! See how West Elm styles their overlapping square headboard here.
I love how West Elm choose a dark stain on a bright wall with white bedding. A blah bedroom can go to chic style with some paint, this headboard, and some white bedding.

Build the Headboard Frame
Build the headboard frame as shown above. The bottom 2×4 (frame support) can be adjusted to any height for easily attaching your bed frame to the headboard.
Build the large 90s and attach to the headboard frame as shown above. Carefully mark out the placement of the joints to the headboard frame for a nice square fit.
Now build the smaller 90s seperate and mark and place inside the larger 90s. Screw in place.
