A New Project for the Mountain Cottage Attic Bedroom


Hello Friends!

Our Mountain Cottage attic bedroom was one of our first projects at our mountain cottage. I'll put a link to the before and after at the bottom of the post.

 If you remember, we had country blue wallpaper on every wall that had to be removed. We painted the walls a soft grey. Mr. DIY built the platform bed for much needed storage and we brought up my grandmother's chair and found a great mid century dresser at a local shop. Wall decor was the last  to be added.

We may soon be doing a long awaited building project in the attic bedroom at our mountain cottage may.  
For as long as I can remember, Mr. DIY and I have wanted to build a shiplap wall behind the bed since the knee wall is so low. By the time we add pillows to the back so we can sit up without bonking our head on the ceiling, our feet are at the end of the bed. (and we aren't tall people).

This pic shows how low the knee wall is.

As  with all our projects, Mr. DIY and I have gone back and forth about design and how it will be built. 
Should it be a plank wall or shiplap ...
stained or painted? 
Should the shiplap be horizontal or vertical...etc. etc. etc.

Since we have the room, the faux wall will most likely come out 8 to 10 inches, and raise the height of the knee wall above the pillows. I think it will look much better. And, of course, behind the faux wall will give us more much needed storage.
