You can find old painted shutters at any salvage shop. Just remember to seal them before using them as a headboard. Unpainted shutters add to the earthy, exotic feel of this room. A large, framed piece of corkboard does double duty as a bulletin board and as a ... well, as a headboard. Hurray for pallets! They are often free (check first before taking), and they make excellent places to hang stuff on as well. Old fireplace mantels are salvage shop treasures that frame a simple upholstered headboard beautifully. In many places earthquakes prevent hanging anything remotely heavy over the bed (lest it fall on someone's head during the next tembler). This fabric art looks like an extension of the plain, nearly invisible headboard here and adds a danger‐free way to decorate the wall.
Vintage suitcases are the perfect nightstand alternative – they are readily available and full of charm. In my bedroom, my husband's nightstand is four stacked suitcases we've collected over the years. You could easily place a single suitcase on top of a stool, like in the image shown here, and have an equally lovely vignette. Most of us have extra chairs lying around, and if you don't, they are an easy find on Craigslist or at thrift stores and make perfect, casual nightstands. Old trunks make great nightstands because of the instant character they bring to a space, and they're a nice, big storage option for those of us with smaller spaces. Painted to match a room's decor, a lovely drop‐leaf table becomes a spacious nightstand. An adjustable‐height vintage stool like this one is a nice alternative to the traditional nightstand. You can raise or lower the stool to work perfectly in its new function and even have a little room to store books underneath.
After attending approximately 30 weddings in the last couple of years, I'm approaching the baby‐boom stage of life. And with that come nursery inquires from friends. No matter what anyone's style, age or lifestyle is, I recommend Jenny Lind–style cribs and beds. Their whimsical spool detailing can easily work in a traditional, transitional or eclectic home. A white Jenny Lind crib pops against the nursery's purple flat‐panel wainscoting. Pink paisley pairs with white Jenny Lind single beds to create the bedroom of every little girl's dreams. Thanks to its simple design, Jenny Lind furniture is easy to pair with vibrant patterns. The white crib, chain‐link rug and whimsical Roman shade fabric in this nursery prove just that. A pair of Jenny Lind single beds contributes to the vintage feel of this sporty bedroom. With customized bunting, a white Jenny Lind crib, a pouf and a butterfly mobile, Parker's nursery is bursting with personality. The functional Jenny Lind trundle acts as an extra bed for sleepovers. Featuring Delta's Jenny Lind crib, this nursery is brimming with charm. Stark white bedding makes a contrasting statement as it dresses a classic navy Jenny Lind crib.
