This year I wanted to welcome them with a much more comfortable space, so I set out to create a beautiful bedroom on a budget that would also be easy to convert back and forth from my studio to a guest room when we do and don’t have house guests. I had most things on hand but the design started to come together when I saw this rug and a DIY headboard idea was born.DIY WOVEN HEADBOARD
Small Finish Nails
6 x Placemats
2 x Rug I wanted a headboard to frame out the bed and make it feel like a proper bedroom and all I did was purchase 6 of these table mats and 2 of these rugs and secure them to the wall with tiny finish nails. Five minutes later… instant headboard!
Another great thing about this DIY is that I can repurpose the placemats for a table setting while they aren’t in use as a headboard.On a side note… I love seeing how my wallpaper works in a bedroom setting, which has me really excited for when I can start selling it (I’ll keep you posted but it should be available early 1017!). I bought this simple bed frame which has legs that screw off easily so we can store it without taking up too much space when we don’t have guests and I topped it all off with my favorite Parachute bedding. Next I added some ottomans as night stands, and a grounded it all with a Frances Loom vintage rug, from my ever growing rug
I am not sure how having a bed in the studio over the next month or so will affect my productivity. It is pretty naptime tempting after all, but I am sure my visiting family will appreciate it.
