The Guest Bedroom-Vintage And on a Budget

The guest bedroom was one of those projects that got started, but took eons to finish. I'd finally had enough and worked on getting it finished last week. Now I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders!
The goal of this room was to make it feel cozy, collected and do this on a budget. This was easy to do with vintage finds and clearance items.
Everything started with a headboard built from reclaimed cedar fence posts. We attached them to the wall using two 1X2's that were drilled into the studs. Then each board was screwed in to the 1X2's and finally white washed with some watered down chalky finish paint.
All the details are on the blog.
Difficulty: Easy

Everything here is vintage. That cute little mid century modern yellow vinyl chair was a $6 Goodwill score. After a good scrubbing, it looks brand new.
