Ok. I don’t know if it’s just because I can never make up my mind, or just that everything I had tried before sucked, but I feel like I can never decide on what kind of art to put above my bed. I’ve tried so many things and nothing ever looks right to me. I always see these great ideas on Pinterest and Instagram, but whenever I try to replicate them, they just don’t look as good as they did in the photo I saw. I have a headboard on my bed, but I just feel like it’s not tall enough to stand alone without something above it, so I keep trying different things. Here are some of my previous attempts at decorating above my bed.
In my old town house I had bought mirrors from the dollar store and put them above my bed. You can check out the post here. I didn’t hate the way they looked, but I also didn’t have a headboard on my bed at the time so I felt like it worked. However, when I moved, I added a headboard to my bed and when I tried to put the mirrors above my bed again, I didn’t really care for it.
So I decided to make a sunburst mirror and use that as decor above my bed. Check out the post here.
I had also tried a wall collage of frames and a few other things, but none of them seemed right. Like I said it looked so much better in other people’s photos than it did in my own room.
I’ve always loved the way handwritten quotes on wood looks so I decided I would give that a try. I took a piece of wood and stained it with a Jacobean/ classic gray mix and then using chalk markers wrote a C.S. Lewis quote on the wood.
There are far better things ahead than we ever leave behind.
