When our little angel was in the womb we bought this great crib that would turn into a full size bed.  Unfortunately when we went to convert it, the bed was too wide for the nook.  There is no room for the bed in her little room right now.  This nook in her bedroom housed a changing table/desk built into the walk. I bet I could have jumped up and down on it and it wouldn't have broken.  It had a 2x4 in the wall with groves that had steel rods in it.  Well, I took that down and had a lovely unpainted patch where her bed was to go.  I freehanded a pattern on the wall, and voila...a quasi headboard!

I wasn't trying to get it even on each side, just sorta matching.  I love the unstructured feel of it.  Plus it was FREE!  I just used paint  from the many extra leftover paint cans residing in our basement.

I love how this room turned out.  When it started as her nursery, I made the crib bedding, curtains and recovered a chair to match.  The wall art came from an Amy Brown calendar that I just cut out my favorites and put in matted frames from Michaels.  It's really fun to decorate when they have no say in the matter.

Thank you so much...it was a lot of fun to do! Smiley  The biggest problem I had with it was keeping the kids out of the paint while I was doing it. Wink
