Dreamy room for a little girl
Details like the trim in this bedroom for a little girl, add a beautiful finishing touch and take away the 'boxy' look. Architectural details and mock panels are very easy to achieve with the right materials and a few basic power tools. Heidi shows us how she created the perfect bedroom for her daughter.
You will need:
6mm PG Bison SupaWood to create the framework around the bed
Polystyrene crown moulding as decorative detail at the top
Pine trim is used for panel frames
The process of building the two side panels is similar to adding a built-in cupboard. In fact, although these two side panels are empty, I would add a hinged door to the front, insert shelves and use this valuable space for storage.
To create the recessed panels, when cutting the side panels - cut two of each.
One panel will be the true side that is screwed onto the shelf edges, the top panel will have cut outs where the recessed panels will be placed.
Mount the top onto the back panel with wood glue and panel pins.
Cut the pine trim to fit inside the recess created between the back and front panel and use No More Nails adhesive to hold in place.
Once everything is firmly in place, the crown moulding can be attached around the top with No More Nails adhesive.
The mock panels behind the bed are made by gluing pine trim to the wall with No More Nails to create the frames.
