Ever since moving out of my parents’ house, they now have an extra bedroom that is being used as a catch-all for everything and anything. It’s basically one of those rooms that you throw things in when guests come over, close the door, and pretend the mess doesn’t exist (I know you know what I’m talking about). But, since schooling is going to be hybrid for many places fall, I wanted to transform this messy guest space into a combination home office and guest room for my mom, who is a physical therapist for children with disabilities. So, to get started on this transformation, I partnered up with my friends at Rockler to build the best space-saving guest room project on the planet… a DIY modern murphy bed!
Woodworking is my therapy… most days. I recently opened up about this on Instagram, but turning my therapeutic hobby into a business has been so amazing. But, it’s not often I get to build something nowadays without a looming deadline. So, this summer while I was on my break from my full time job, I decided to work on a project for me – a therapy project. Something to remind me why I started sharing …
Now that the living space in our apartment is complete (and looking pretty dope, if I must say so myself), it’s time to start focusing on the hot mess that we call our bedroom. I have honestly been drooling over those trendy geometric feature walls that have been popping up all over the internet, but my landlord wouldn’t be too happy with me if I installed one in our rental. So, to scratch my accent wall itch in a way that will still get me my deposit back, I decided to create a DIY geometric wood headboard instead!
