After hanging up my DIY Custom Wall Sconces I have been longing for something else to hang on the wall above the bed.

IIdeas and Inspiration for Decorating the Wall Above the Bed

I’m still not sure what that “something” should be. But, of course, as I am taking the time to look for ideas I decided to round up my 5 favorites and ask YOU, my friends in the sisterhood, to give me some input as to which you think would look best.

1. The Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are a beautiful way to showcase art, pictures, and items that mean something to you. But, let’s face it, gallery walls take time to “think up” and put together. If you want the hard work done for you, check out this gallery wall frame set from Amazon . For less than $20 you can fill in the frames with pictures, kids art, or anything you want to display! You could spray paint some of the frames and accessories to add a variety of colors, if you want your set to have a different, more personalized look.


3. DIY Wall Art

I will be honest I am not a big fan of framed art, but this DIY version of distressed wall art  is adorable, and looks really good above the bed in a master bedroom. And you all know I am a fan of DIY. What a great option. I would just need to tweak the colors a bit. Oh, the choices!



4. The Sunburst Mirror

Sunburst mirrors are everywhere, in every size shape and color. I love them. This sunburst mirror really caught my attention. My bedroom has gold and grey accents, which would make this mirror stand out and look beautiful between the sconces. Isn’t it pretty?

5. Rustic Window Frames

I ran across this inspiring photo from Liz Marie and fell in love with the rustic window frame look above her bed. Her lights are similar to my DIY version. Aren’t those window frames gorgeous??

Amazon has some similar ones that would achieve a similar look. I could even paint them white ๐Ÿ™‚


Well? What do you think? Which should I choose? Ahhhhhhh! See my predicament? I know, I know. First world problems ๐Ÿ™‚
