Every bedroom is different but most have a common focal point, the headboard. Headboards come in a variety of styles and I will show you how to make your own using very little tools and ones that can be changed as often as possible without breaking the bank.
We will star with the simple and proceed to the one that needs a bit more effort.
With this ‘headboard’ scatter cushions were used, you can choose any colour that suits the colour scheme of your bedroom or those that will create a contrast.
What you need:
Hooks (quantity is determined by the size of the bed and cushions)
What to do:
Saw on pieces of string to all the ends of your cushions, then measure the distance between the ends of one side and mark on the wall with a pencil and then insert your picture frame hooks (they will not damage the wall and still give great support). You will need to make 3or 4 rows depending on the size of your cushions and when you are done you can tie the strings to the hooks and you have a new head board or you can vary it like the second picture.
In this picture the cushions are all hang individually and the string is sewn to the back of the cushion
There is a lot of ways to vary this kind of headboards, you can use pictures and canvases as done below.
Colour is an essential part of decorating; it is not a finishing touch, therefore it is important to take your time in selecting this as it is the canvas on which you will paint your master piece. You can also change the colour of your kitchen to give it a fresh look now and then. You should not have the same colour for too long.
Changing the colour will also give your kitchen an effect of a major makeover.
Light colours are great for small kitchens as they reflect light creating an illusion of space and so your kitchen will not look too crammed. Dark colours have the opposite effect and will make a small room look even smaller. It is also a good idea to have extra lighting in your kitchen ; this should be the more natural lighting like day glow globes that can be bought any good hardware, this gives your kitchen a spacious clean look.
