Use a decorative, mid-century living room screen as a headboard

troy uses a decorative living room screen as a headboardHere is a great idea from the ever-inspirational reader SF Troy. I recently checked in with him to see what has been going on in his Bay Area Eichler home. He said that he’s been very busy riding his bike in fundraisers — yay, Troy! — and only recently has settled back inside to contemplate the next wave of house projects. But he did say he recently visited The Midway Antique Mall in Sacramento, where he purchased this decorative, four-panel mid century screen — which he easily repurposed into a headboard. Brilliant! It looks great behind the bed.

Another idea: Use the decorative lattice screen (pvc) available from Acurio Latticeworks to craft your own Troy-style headboard.

I also want to point out how Troy is quite genius in his mixing of texture and geometric design: Big geometric in the rya (?) rug… Tight stripes on the bed… Small midmod on the screen… Amorphous lamps… wide stripes on the ceiling. There is a lot of pattern going on in this room — but none of it is clashy clashy, it’s all carefully orchestrated, piece-by-piece. Thank you, Troy — as usual!
