A DIY bedroom makeover

First room makeover on the blog…and no before picture! Hum…well let just say that the walls were plain white and we just have the bed. It took me time to complete this part of the bedroom, like 2 years! There is still a lot to do in the room, I want to add a seat and re-paint the dresser…but I wanted to share it and show you that is possible to DIY almost everything! If you follow the blog from awhile you already have seen most of the tutorials, here is the recap:

  •     Ikea hack ceiling lamp
  •     Easy tangram wall art
  •     DIY geo lampshade
  •     Homemade side table

I just paint the wall to make the bedhead, I explain you how here under. I also sew the bed-skirt with cheap fabric…if it’s something you would be interested it I can also make a quick how-to post about it.

So to make the bedhead, use masking tape to make a rectangle on the wall. Make it a little bigger than you bed width. Use a level to be sure that the shape is horizontal.

Start making shapes. I choose triangle and use a thinner masking tape. Pressure all along the tape so that it adheres perfectly to the wall. 

Start painting, in my opinion the foam brush works best…but just try and use what work for you.

 When the paint is dry take of the tape.

And tadam, your easy bedhead is done!
