Before & After: A Big Ticket Bedroom

Before & After: A Big Ticket Bedroom

We got a long distance email from Laura in Amsterdam this morning: When we bought our house about two years ago we fixed the place up quite a bit. After we got settled in, my fiancé and I started looking for a headboard that suited our small bedroom. Since we couldn't find anything we liked, we decided to make our own.

Using inspiration from a vintage ticket stub, we designed this decal. We had it printed as a large black and a red wall sticker, which we cut in approx. 20 pieces and applied to the wall. We used some dates and numbers that mean something to us (including our anniversary date) to make it even more personal.

The chair we use as a night stand is a recent thrift store find and the bedspread a vintage piece from Lady Day in Amsterdam.

A totally memorable and personal use of custom stickers to define a small space - thanks, Laura!
