Low Bed

Hi friends! How was your weekend? I'm building a bed today. It's just another Monday at Pearl Street!

I was originally thinking of a big, curvy upholstered headboard for this room, but I then I revisited my "Bedroom" files and discovered these two images that feature a low upholstered head and footboard. I'm in love.

Source unknown - Norman something?

Design by Timothy Whealon

I found a vintage crate bed at a used furniture store, complete with a solid wooden headboard, footboard and side rails. The height is a little off, so I am building up the head and footboards with some wooden slats before I upholster the whole thing in this really cool tapestry fabric that I got at my local discount fabric store.


And don't you worry, there will be lots of nailhead trim for good measure.

I'll be sure to take lots of pictures for a tutorial later. You guys are going to flip over this bedroom!

Where is the best place to buy nailhead trim? I'm thinking of trimming the IKEA lack side tables, the way I think you recommended a while back. . .

Exciting! Can't wait for the tutorial. I love the look of nail trim, but it looks like a pain to install. So any shortcuts would be awesome! :)
