* sticker headboard

Posted on October 11th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.

Our mattress is still on the metal frame it came with pending finding a bed frame/head board we like. Since that hasn’t happened yet, I thought it might be fun to try some of the wall decals from blik as a temporary and renter-friendly solution. I got the Boy in the Weeds pattern from Threadless, which I also happen to own in T-shirt form. The stickers were a giant pain to put up: instead of coming already assembled into the design, I had to cut every one of them apart and stick them up individually, using a level to keep them all straight. It took me and Mark most of the afternoon. But, they look pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Maybe I’ll try these doily ones next.  I have a big blank space behind the door in my office.  Hmmmm.

    These look really cool! Have you seen these similar ones from DecoSticks Wall Stickers? They have a number of headboard designs. Specially floral flock pattern – my favorite!

    Love the idea – would probably hate the fuss. And before I really looked at what the graphic was, the first thing my (sleepy sunday afternoon) brain thought of was the differing levels in a cityscape.

    Which made me think, *anything* could serve as the “blocks” of a cityscape – and (if it was paper) could be applied to the wall (possibly) with flour/water (“wallpaper paste”) and then removed later. Will have to try something like that unobtrusively (where I won’t hate it if I mess up).

    I think you are going to be sparking alot of ideas in my head. Super!

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
