Sneak Peek At Southern Living Guest Room

Almost two years ago my husband and I visited the Southern Living home in Senoia, Georgia. I fell in love with one of the bedrooms that had white plank walls and buffalo check fabrics. So I set out to recreate my own Southern Living bedroom in one of our spare bedrooms. I got all the bedding and we even cut out a headboard template and then.....nothing! It's sat in that stage for almost two years....shameful, I know!


Here's the state of the room as it has been for the past 2 years!   I can't believe I'm telling ya'll that but just keeping it real around here.  
 

 The "headboard" that's propped up behind the bed is the one my husband cut out for me but it's been bothering me that it's just not wide enough.    That might be part of the reason I just couldn't finish it so I'm hoping the one from Ballards will be just right.   The plan was to cover it with a drop cloth and add nailheads. 

I recently got a new Ballards catalog and found this headboard that I really liked...and the price was very reasonable. So yesterday I ordered it!

 
I got the burlap headboard and I plan on adding nailhead trim to "customize" it. Although the bed is a full size, I ordered the queen headboard in the event we "upsize" the bed down the road. I don't think the extra few inches on the queen headboard will really matter with the double bed....i've done all the measurements. One good thing about the headboard is I will have 30 days to return or refund so if I need the full size, I can just return the queen and get the double...they will even pay for return shipping! I might have to do a little rearranging in the bedroom and I want to add a gallery wall but if I can just get that bed finished, I'll feel like I'm nearing the finish line on this room.

It's on backorder until early June but since I've waited this long, what's a few more weeks?   I'll be so happy to have this project done so I can focus on another bedroom and bathroom this summer...that's the plan anyway!   Hope it doesn't take another 2 years to get those two things done!

Hope you all have a wonderful week.   Next Monday my sister and I are planning on taking our delayed annual girl's trip to the beach....I cannot wait!

The room looks beautiful already! My son has that Ballard headboard in his room. I bought the slipcover in white and then dyed it navy to match his room. I can't wait to see how yours turns out!

Love that you are keeping it real here, Judy. LOL- My master is in a state of flux, too. I can't decide WHAT I want to do with it- it is okay but not finished. I love your inspiration room and you are really a good part of the way there already! xo Diana

Love the buffalo check! Ballards has some very reasonable upholstered headboards now.
