The bedroom is where I always struggle with decor. I’ve always wanted a serene, calming bedroom with a nailhead or tufted headboard, and some purple in there. Being the diy’er that I am, I could not would not buy a headboard. Of course, I made it myself. You can find those here and here. However, I’ve lived with those nailheads for two years, and I hate them more every day. So I recently did 3 bedroom updates including getting rid of them.
- It was easy to get rid of the nailheads. I just used a hammer to pry the nails up, some ice to puff it back up, and ironed the wrinkles out. It feels like we have a whole new headboard that I can appreciate again. It’s 5 years old, and the fabric has started to fade so it will have to be replaced when we move. But for now it makes me so much happier.
- I also added some new handles to our nightstands. These are the ikea brimnes nightstands. We had the plain white handles that come with it on. I always knew a better handle in a metal with make it look soooo much better. I just never got around to it. But we’re about to buy a new dresser, and I wanted the handles to match. So much better. The handles are $2 ones from lowes that aren’t online. Please ignore the milk dud in the carpet.
- Lastly, I put up some new art above the bed. I love how it simplifies the area. It really brings it all together in the room. There were too many woods/metals going on. This fixes it I think! The frames are 16×20 Ribba’s from ikea. The prints are these.
