Dress Up Your Bed

I love DIY projects - partly because I can brag and say "I did that!" but mostly because we live on a tight budget (as most young families do, particularly in recent days). When we got married, we splurged on a mattress, but haven't yet sprung for a headboard & frame so it sits in a $30 basic metal frame from Costco with not much in the way of adornment.

I keep looking for lovely, smart (and cheap) headboard ideas and found a great link this week at diyideas.com (a great resource for- you guessed it - diy ideas). The entire idea gallery is cool, but this one in particular caught my eye:

We can do that!
I thought. Of course, they mention making the stencil yourself - totally doable, but if you can find a lovely company (like ours) to do it for you and eliminate virtually all of the work and stress? I say go for it!

And, as coincidences go, I've been working headboard designs just this week. This is another wall art category that we'll be adding to the Belvedere Designs site soon. For now, here's a sneak peak at a few of our up-and-coming headboard designs:


Also, remember the beautiful Chinese floral designs from a few weeks ago? These would be lovely as an accent piece above a bed. And interestingly enough, we've recently had several custom vinyl wall letter orders for precisely this thing - designs for above the bed. One gal ordered this:


Just lovely isn't it? So watch for our new vinyl headboards & designs coming soon. You'll be seeing wrought iron, lots of scrolls and flourishes and some pretty florals as well. And of course, you can always customize your space with any of our wall quotes or our custom wall letters preview tool. Go crazy - dress up that bed, and with any luck, I'll even post a photo of our new headboard. (seriously, vinyl's the perfect accessory in every room - and don't I know it!)
