Friday Find: Screen Turned Headboard

I owe this Friday Find to Pinterest. This screen from World Market (yes, World Market again) popped up on my Pinterest page:



And I thought.... HEADBOARD! I've been wanting a headboard for the guest room, well, since we moved in. And I've been coveting this look for a loooong long time since this was published in Cottage Living (probably in 2007 or 2008?)



I remember looking into buying the screen/headboard used in this feature. It was from Ballard (I don't think they have it anymore) and was around $600.

Anyway, I can't believe the World Market one looks so similar! And it was $200. Yes!!

It's very new, just got into stores this week and I think the color on their site is incorrect. The screen is actually natural linen colored, not ivory like they say on the site. I thought maybe they had two colors, but the SKU numbers are the same.

And here it is in my guest room:

IMGP2031

IMGP2023

It turned out that the headboard, Euros and bed skirt are all the same color. But I actually like it!

Next on my list for this room are dark bamboo shades and an awesome bolster pillow. I'm also going to spray paint the lamps glossy white.

If you need an inexpensive headboard, this is a great option! :)

  5. Great find!  It's perfect in your guest bedroom.  I am so sad that we do not have a World Market anywhere near me.  Although, my wallet may be happy...

  13. Did you attach it to the bed or the wall?  I have a mid century modern vintage screen as my head board and am unsure of how to connect it so that it's not constantly hitting the wall in one place or another. Thoughts?

  17. It looks GREAT!  However, forever a lover the "pop" I sorta yearn for a pop of color in the room.  But I am also digging the tranquilly that ir brings.

  27. I love this as a headboard - it's absolutely brilliant!!! I wonder about spraying the lamps white though.. they will have less of a presence in the room and white may clash with the walls and lampshade. Can't wait to see it all come together!

  31. This morning received a DWELL email with an upholstered nailhead headboard pictured that is real similar to the shape of this screen.  Great idea to use the World Market screen this way and if you ever tire of it, you've got a floor screen :)
