Our under $50 faux board and batten wall treatment in lieu of a headboard really dresses things up.
This is the hot mess we were working with BEFORE.
Why do what are suppose to be our most comfortable space always seem to be the ones that get neglected?

Mixed in modern with vintage - that old cedar chest belonged to my great grandmother.
An amazing improvement for under $500!
