Since I was back in NY all of last month, I decided to tackle my room at my cousin’s house that has been sitting there plain and basically empty since I moved out. It’s just waiting for me to move back to NY for good! I pulled everything apart and (with the help of my cousin and our roomie) added some picture frame moulding and finished up this whole room done in under 48 hours!
I really wanted to do a feature wall behind the bed instead of making a headboard – although I do have a million headboard ideas too. Ha! And I think this picture frame moulding really added a lot of texture and warmth to the room. Plus the paint matches perfectly with my new duvet cover! I thrifted a pair of vintage chairs for $7 and decided to make them the nightstands. Found some affordable wall sconces and then painted them (I thought the black was a bit too dark for this space) and did the puck light trick so we didn’t have to fuss with electrical stuff. Now I’m obsessed with that hack!
What you need:
- decorative trim (length and number of boards will depend on how wide your wall is)
- 1″x3″ (length and number of boards will depend on how wide your wall is)
- miter saw
- tape measure
- nail gun
- wood filler

And a little before photo just to show how plain the space was. I had already moved the bed aside and the dresser out but it was pretty empty.
