Headboard wall

Last night I installed the wall moldings for the wall that will "crown" the headboard of the bed.

When we were living in this room, we had the headboard of our bed against this same wall.  However, there used to be a 3' wide by 6" deep chimney that came through the floor (it vents our hot water tank and boiler) not centered in the room.  So there was this odd jog coming out of the wall, behind one side of the headboard.

Instead of working around this, I decided to accentuate the situation by extending this bump-out in both directions.   I wasn't sure of myself at first, but now its starting to look like a really nice design element of the room.  There will be new bedside outlets as well as bedside wall sconces when its all said and done.

I think this is going to turn out nicely. I wish I didn't have to paint.
