Bedroom Diy Ideas

I‘m particularly obsessed with bedroom improvements at the moment (constantly craving that perfect night’s sleep!) so I’ve popped together 29 of the best bedroom DIY ideas and projects… perhaps you can bookmark a few for the weekend?1. Book PlantersFor the little book worms out there these gorgeous book planters will look divine on your beside table.2.  Map FlowersEven though these are technically a wedding DIY, a garland of these map flowers would look beautiful strung along a bed head.3. Ikea Hack Mini DrawersI bloody love an Ikea hack and this one is rad. Perfect to store your make up or trinkets on your dressing table.4. Cut Out Work ArtEven though word art has been done to death in recent years I can feel a little resurgence coming on… love this DIY from The Paper Mama.5. Cinder Block Bedside TableA perfect lesson in how to not make cinder block furniture look cheap and tacky.6. Washi Tape Picture FramesPerfect for renters. Stick your favourite photos to the wall with Washi tape frames and then peel it off when you move out.7. DIY Dotty WallpaperI absolutely ADORE this wallpaper DIY. It’s literally little black stickers stuck to the wall. Brilliant. 8. Sharpie WallpaperThis is another wallpaper DIY but this one is done with Sharpies. Some people are so clever, it’s almost irritating.9. Gemstone Mirror FrameI think we all got sick of birthstone decor in the 90s but I stumbled upon this little ‘gem’ (snort!) and I thought it was quite a gorgeous little bedroom project.10. Crochet PoufsI may be delusional but these almost look achievable right?11. Marbled TrinketsI just loved this nail polish marble DIY – Something tells me there will be a lot of marbling going on this weekend.12. Adult Hama Bead MobileI have BUCKETS of Hama beads hiding in my craft cupboard and I’m so stoked to finally have a way to use them.13. Wool Patchwork CatI’m a sucker for homemade toys and this little guy would look pretty cosy on almost any bed.14. Washi Tape VasesA super cheap and easy way to up-cycle old bottles and jars for your bedroom.15. Cardboard Bedroom SilhouettesHow amazing are these furniture silhouettes? Perfect if you aren’t planning on staying in the same spot for too long.16. Hanging String TableSuch a brilliant and simple idea for space saving. Hang a circular chopping board next to your bed as a bedside table.17. Bed Head ArtA simple and temporary head board. Perfect for people who like to change their mind a lot.18. Ikea Hack Malm DrawersI own about three Malm sets of drawers and I’m definitely giving one of them a makeover soon. 19. Leather and Wood OrganiserI need one of these near my door to stop the avalanche of mail. It’s on my to-list. 20. Hanging NotepadMr Smaggle and I sometimes have morning ‘stand up’ meetings where we talk about what we’re going to do that day and this would be perfect for stand up note taking. 21. Hand Painted CushionsMr Smags is very funny about cushions for some reason but I think he’d quite like if I made a few of these. 22. Gold Acrylic ClipboardsI’m an absolute glutton for stationary and rather than spend a bajillion dollars at Kiki K, I’m quite fond of an office bedroom DIY.23. Painted DresserLove this painted dresser. Furniture is usually so bland so why not jazz it up with snazzy paint job?24. Handwriting Statement WallHow beautiful to have a wall with your own handwriting on it? If we ever did this in the Smaggle House it would have to be Mr Smags handwriting. Mine is shocking.25. Tote Bag Cushion CoversHow annoyed are you that you never thought of this yourself? I’d probably cut the handles off and sew them up (control freak) but they look quite cute as it.26. Type Felt RugI love a good rug and this would look amazing underneath a glass top table. 27. String Pendant LampThis is literally made from string and glue. So cheap and so awesome.28. Copper Clothes HangerA brilliant solution if you have open cupboard spaces. 29. Ikea Hack Beside TableJust pop a few table feet on a single Expedit square.

Architectural Artwork Designer Brian Patrick Flynn wanted to add a rustic-meets-industrial vibe to this bedroom, so he created a one-of-a-kind piece of art out of some salvaged wood. He mounted the charmingly distressed door directly to the wall, then framed it out with some scrap trim pieces to give it a custom built-in look. Suitcase Bedside Table Have you ever thought about turning an old suitcase into a bedside table? Start with a small table and suitcase that work well together dimension-wise &#151 a hard shell suitcase works best. Prime and paint both the suitcase and table with your choice of paint. Set the open suitcase on the table and drill several pilot holes straight through to the wood below. Secure with screws, close the suitcase, and your new table is ready to be used! Head over to Songbird Blog for full instructions and photos on creating your own suitcase side table. Brass Stencil Lampshade To create this brass stencil lampshade, gather up one wire-framed lampshade and a hefty handful of vintage brass letter stencils. Rip off the fabric from the lampshade frame and wrap the top and base with grosgrain ribbon. Next, punch some holes in the brass stencils and start tying them onto the lampshade frame with string, fine twine or ribbon. Place the shade on a vintage lamp, add an industrial-chic Edison bulb, and you’re done! See Amy Duncan’s complete tutorial at Four Corners Design. Coastal-Style Shutter Headboard Layla Palmer of The Lettered Cottage thriftily found new purpose for some unfinished shutters and ended up creating a gorgeous and unique headboard with a coastal cottage style. The shutters were painted, lightly distressed, then anchored securely to the wall. The look is simple, cozy and creates the perfect focal point for this neutral bedroom. Mattress Spring Display Board Say goodbye to traditional memo boards; an old mattress spring works just as well. Take a vintage crib mattress spring and scrub it with a wire brush to knock off any rust that could discolor walls. Leave as-is for a distressed look, or spray-paint it a glossy hue. Secure it to the wall with a screw at each corner. Use vintage clothespins, clips and rings to hang whatever items you’d like to display. See Melissa Urban’s full project, with complete instructions and pictures, over at Shabby Love. Upcycled Sweater Pillows Give an old sweater a new lease on life by creating a decorative sweater pillow. First, turn the sweater inside out. Place your pillow form onto your sweater and measure around the pillow leaving a small margin to sew. Mark and cut the sweater. Sew the two pieces together, leaving a space to slip the pillow form in. Cut away the excess sweater and turn right side out. Slip the pillow form in, and hand-stitch the opening closed. Head over to Brassy Apple to see Megan Pyrah’s full instructions and pictures. Desk Turned Nightstand A discarded desk can be a great way to create a pair of repurposed nightstands for the bedroom. Look for a desk with symmetrical drawers on each side. Use a saw to cut the drawers away from the desk. Repair any imperfections or holes from the desk deconstruction with wood fill, use a router to match the beveled edges, then paint as desired. See Mandy Beyeler’s detailed instructions and pictures at Sugar Bee Crafts. Map Gallery Wall Designer Brian Patrick Flynn of Decor Demon hit the books — well, the Atlas, at least — to create this high-impact gallery wall on the cheap. An oversized map was cut into six equal pieces, then tucked into sleek, metallic modern frames. From: Brian Patrick Flynn Double-Duty Dresser This vintage dresser now does double-duty in a bedroom that must also function as a study space. Designer Janell Beals of Isabella and Max Rooms converted this classic Hoosier cupboard into a compact desk with just a little paint and ingenuity. Burlap Roller Shade Designer Erica Islas needed an inexpensive way to add texture to this bedroom’s window treatment, so she turned to rustic burlap. Using spray adhesive, she attached the burlap to a simple roller shade and installed it according to the directions. Erica then repeated the texture in the room by making a chic burlap upholstered headboard.
