New Bedhead

It's time for a new bed. I've had the current one since I left university many many years ago and while I painted the horrible orange Baltic pine white several years ago, I think it's time for an updated look. I mentioned it to one of my friends and she just looked at me and said "Fiona, it's definitely time!"

I am in the process of painting a fabulous carved timber bedhead but I have decided to sell it and opt for an upholstered bedhead instead.  I've ordered this one below.
I am so in love with it.

Beyond excited for it to arrive. It should go nicely with the linen roman blinds that are being made and installed in the room. I also will be reupholstering the beautiful old French bench at the end of our bed. I think I've found a good linen with a navy stripe for it. Just waiting for it to arrive also.  Lots of projects on the go in a big push to finish all my house to do list before Christmas. 


How bad is that fabric! Can't wait to be rid of it.

So if you are in the market for an amazing carved timber bed head painted in the softest grey let me know or stay tuned as I have an incredible piece up for sale soon.

  1. Fiona, why don't you make one of the park bench style things out of your old bed? It'd look great made from that bed, and would really suit your courtyard.

    1. Not a chance Elisabeth! I've had this bed for too long and can't wait to get rid of it. I don't love it at all. (I reckon it would rot pretty fast outside also as only untreated pine)

  3. Hi Fiona,
    I love your new bedhead. It is hard to find a padded bedhead with the timber around it. Do you mind if I ask where you found it?
    Your house is looking lovely,
    Regards Robyn

    1. Hi Robyn

      I am so excited for it to arrive. It's the Hannah bedhead by Style My home. They have a pop up shop in crows nest . The queen is around $850. You also buy online (http://stylemyhome.com.au)

      They only had three in these ones left but there are other styles and they are also gorgeous.
      Even though I found online I went and had a look at them and it's very good quality. The linen is beautiful and the timber is lovely also. They are handmade in china
      Cheers Fiona

  4. Personally, I don't like upholstered bedheads, although they do look nice. I'm looking forward to seeing pics of the carved bedhead.

    1. Hi Elsie. I’ve never had an upholstered bedhead before but I love it. It arrived today and I’m very much looking forward to bed time tonight!
      Cheers Fiona
