DIY Gustavian Headboard

Jackie sent us her weekend DIY project — a Gustavian headboard inspired by the Francoise Bed from The Conran Shop: I've always wanted a headboard for my bed but have been limited due to cost and the small size of my NYC bedroom. To solve this problem, I decided to search for a headboard that I liked on the internet and recreate it in chalkboard paint on my wall. I was surprised how well it turned out and was thrilled that I didn't have to repaint my wall after completing the project!

If DIY is not your thing, you can purchase a Gustavian-style bed from these sources:

• The Conran Shop | Francoise Bed
• Viva Terra | Gustavian Vintage Bed -
• Cupboards & Roses | Swedish Style Bed

Thanks Jackie!
