Slumber and Storage
Turn common building materials into an uncommonly stylish bed with a narrow seat topping the footboard. You can make this bed with or without storage drawers that roll out on lawn mower wheels from beneath the bed. A plush shag rug (#127649) helps make the space the epitome of luxurious loft living.
Create wooden bedside tables for less than $50 each. Then finish them to match your bed or room decor.
Rope-Wrapped Pendant Light
Turn a store-bought pendant light into a custom bedside lamp. With a hammered-metal-finish shade (#586829) and jute rope embellishment, this fixture provides plenty of light without taking up table space.
A Flexible Palette
On the bed, we paired Minwax Classic Gray stain with white paint. Then we added a warm yellow accent color (Garden Yarrow) around the room. If yellow isn’t your taste, these three colors also make a killer combo with gray. Try one of them on the bed, side tables, or accessories to complement a gray stain.
