Not only will you feel a great sense of pride in the items you create, but also this is the most effective way to inject your personality into your home. If you want to create your own bedroom furniture, read on for some easy suggestions to get started.
New mirror with old trim
There are some gorgeous, elaborate mirrors on the market today, with stunning intricate detailing. The trouble is that they are typically very expensive. Luckily, there is a way to get around this, and that is to buy a tall mirror without any decorate elements or a frame – literally just the mirror part, and add a salvaged door trim. This will give the mirror a decorative and charming touch.
If you have a big bedroom, it is important to make effective use of the space. One of the ways you can do this is by creating a seating area. Of course, every good seating area needs a coffee table, and you can make your own hairpin-leg coffee table without breaking the bank. Blend the industrial metal legs with a rustic wood top to create a high-end look that is at the height of interior style now. The key to this project are the vintage hairpin legs. They used to be found on furniture in the mid-century. Today, you can easily acquire them from marketplaces and online auction sites at affordable prices.
Make an upholstered headboard to make your bedroom more relaxing and more luxurious. All you will need is a piece of plywood that is cut to size, as well as a nail head trim, fabric, batting, and one-inch foam. Not only is this a really fun project, but also it can make it appear as if you have a new bed entirely. Win-win!
The thought of making your own wardrobe doors may fill you with dread. However, you don’t need to be a DIY expert to embark on this task. If you currently have sliding closet doors at present, bifold doors are a great replacement. While sliding doors may save space, they are not always the best looking, and they make it difficult for you to find clothing and other goods that are in the middle of the closet. On the other hand, if you have heavy bifold doors on a sturdy track, you can have a full picture of the contents inside by effortlessly moving the doors away from the center. Putting a pair of weighty, solid folders in place of sliders is not as big of a deal as you may expect. The entire assembly and installation should only take you a Saturday afternoon.
This is one of the easiest DIY projects, and it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and exciting. Invest in a pair of old wooden ladders, or buy shelves and cleats to mimic the look, and paint them in a color of your choosing. You will need to sand the surface first to ensure it is smooth. Look for the best bench sander online for a project like this so that you can achieve a professional finish. Delicate as these bookshelves may appear, the hardwood frame will be sturdy, and the balanced design will make sure it does not fall over. In addition, the airy and open design of the unique shelf will make your bedroom look much more spacious and welcome. This is ideal for those that have a bedroom that is a little bit on the small size.
Lining your closet with cedar wood is a great idea. This is because the natural aroma of cedar will ensure your clothes smell fresh while also keeping your garments free from the likes of moths and other pests. If that was not enough, cedar is also resistant to mildew, which is well known for ruining fabrics. Sold yet? If so, line your closet with cedar, and you will have a wardrobe that looks amazing and is practical.
So there you have it, some great suggestions for building your own bedroom furniture. The ideas mentioned above are not only straightforward, but they are a lot of fun too. Moreover, the likes of the ladder bookshelf and the headboard are things that you can easily revamp, meaning you can change the look and feel of your bedroom every few years.
