Vintage brass bed can make a dramatic focal point in your room if you take advantage of its large scale and decorate it appropriately. The addition of bold colors, elegant bedding and a coordinating headboard can help transform your single bed into a prominent and stately piece in your bedroom. Cascading drapes around the perimeter of your bed can also help achieve a level of sophistication and intimacy in the most intimate room of your home.
Make your own headboard if you don’t already have one. Paint three doors of the same color and place them behind your bed for a quick refurbished headboard. Cut plywood into squares, dress them and attach behind the bed. Lay the breadboard panels behind the bed for a stylish headboard. Paint your vintage bed if you want. A neutral color like black or white will also let the other decorations on and around the bed pop. Hang drapes around the bed. Install a cornice box several meters above the bed and hang drapes from it.
Hooks on each side of the bed keep the fabric in place and frame the bed. Drape curtains around the posts and tie in the sides if you have a four-poster bed. Add stairs to the side of the bed. Paint or bite the stairs in a color that matches the bed frame and headboard. Lay the bottom sheets to the bed. Place a bed skirt in between your box spring and mattress. Lay the sheets. Place a comforter, quilt or quilt on top of the sheets. A patterned cover includes a livelier design that draws more attention to it while a solid color cap allows other accent pieces to pop to a more neutral background.
