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.
