Bedroom Decorating Ideas: DIY Headboard

Figuring out how to decorate a small bedroom was a new challenge I was happy to take on after living is a studio apartment for 3 years! On a budget, I got creative turning IKEA LACK tables into DIY nightstands and made an upholstered DIY headboard to upgrade an inexpensive secondhand bed frame. More DIY projects provided art for the walls, including making a frame out of leftover materials from the headboard. Last but not least, I got rid of the ugly vertical blinds and replaced them with curtains and a DIY window cornice to hide the hardware without removing any of the existing hardware. The end result was a beautiful and elegant bedroom perfect for unwinding at the end of a busy day.
