Liz’s bedroom was already a cozy and serene space with a sloped ceiling and white plan walls, but she wanted to add a little something special.

From Liz: To get this project started, I adapted a few ideas from one of my favorite bloggers, Jenna Sue. This girl has added amazing faux wood beams in her home and recently did a bathroom makeover with lace curtains around a clawfoot tub that seriously left my jaw on the floor. It was to die for, you guys!

For the wood beam, Jeremy and I first cut a 1×4 to stretch from wall to wall in the sleeping nook. This board gets screwed into the ceiling and acts as the support for the sides of the beam. We pre-drilled holes through the board and into the ceiling about every foot or so.

Thank you, Liz!
